Great story! but I hate the version of the song. Glad Mick gave permission, after all the Stones covered they're share of songs.

I like a lot of the ones listed already. Don't think I saw this on the list yet. Another one of my favorite remakes:

Black Stone Cherry - Can't You See

Edit:
Forgot about this one as well:

Black Stone Cherry - Folsom Prison Blues

I will throw another remake into the mix.

Al Hibbler 1955

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNj11dnFI68

The Righteous Brothers 1965 IMO the best version ever.

Carrie Underwood and LeAnn Rimes also have pretty good versions of this song too.

Every Avenue, "Take Me Home Tonight" / Eddie Money.
Great rendition (not a big fan of the "Ronnie" knockoff but tight with one of the guitarist

Not to derail this thread, but an original video from Every Avenue.
Look close and you'll see my son and.............me!

Me too! They were just getting popular and he had to go and die from a heroin overdose. Their third album was released after he died, IIRC.
