Cover versions of favourite songs

Cover versions are mostly sub standard attempts to jump on the coat tails of a great song to get airplay.....
Occasionally they are brilliant.......

Cowboy Junkies doing Lou Reed's Sweet Jane. One of the most mesmerizing versions of a song I've ever heard.

"Sometimes you do it to save your own life, not anybody else's. That's mostly why I write. I'm not trying to change anybody else's life or the world; I'm trying to keep from blowing my own brains out. That's the real point." -- Guy Clark

Here is the song you wanted to add.



You have put the web address of the video between the Flash tags, and instead you need to take the address from the EMBED code (can be found on the video page), and take the part that says value=" ", you need that what's between the quotes.
