I obviously went with Jude but man these are two great songs. I wouldn't be surprised to see either win this round.

So should I mix these up and switch the poll to a different song? :D

I guess if I have to lose, I could do an awful lot worse than this one. I really like how Duane is just a member of the band. He doesn't insist on himself and get all masturbatey about it like you see with some guitarist/vocalist projects. And when Pickett starts screaming, damn, what a great moment.

Do yourself a favor and listen to Nina's To Love Somebody album. There are a lot of highlights and some strange, great choices, like her take on Revolution. Turn, Turn, Turn, and I Shall Be Released are a couple of my favorites. Good stuff.
