“Hey Jude, take a bad song and make it better” by having Wilson Pickett and Duane Allman play it.

Most Improved Song, at least.

Heard Pickett's cover of Hey Jude for the first time a month ago, at least as far as I can remember. Agree that it's better than the original. That's true of a lot of Beatles' covers, for me anyway.

I like the Whitey Morgan cover but not as much as Bruce's version.

Hadn't heard of Whitey Morgan before but I voted for them and will explore their music a bit more.

Pickett/Allman. I love the screamy 'na na na' outro. Great song.

Just not a fan of anything "Boss".
(and, yes, feel free to rip me to shreds based on my submission)

I am a "Boss" fan and I wouldn't say this is one of my favorite Boss songs. I didn't dislike the Whitey version, I listened to it a couple of times, it was just a little to much country. It made me give a couple of his other songs a listen and I would say that I liked them.

Went with Wilson Picket. He sang it as if he wrote it.

If you only know Wilson Pickett from In the Midnight Hour and Mustang Sally, you’re missing some good stuff.

Both good covers. Tough choice.
