I've always loved that Blind Melon cover of Three. I'm such a Gen X'er.

Soundgarden.

I liked it better, but also: [expletive] Aerosmith. God, I hate Aerosmith.

It's not exactly a cover, but De La Soul has a song that uses the hook from "Three is a Magic Number" that's pretty good too.

Bob Dorough is an interesting jazz singer. Listened to his story on NPR -I think- a few years ago.

I’m not a Gen X’er so Soundgarden for me.

I was considering typing out a defense of my pick to gain some momentum but ended up 'saving' my pitch for later rounds... womp womp.
