||Pat's favorite Dylan cover is "Mr. Tambourine Man" by The Byrds
||Gary's Dylan choice is "Absolutely Sweet Marie" by Jason and the Nashville Scorchers
||This is Gary's example of a song where he likes the cover better than the original. It's "Take On Me" by The New Pornographers. Originally by A-Ha
||Pat's example is "I Don't Want To Grow Up" sung by The Ramones. Originally by Tom Waits.
||Pat shares with us Rod Stewart's mind-blowing version of "You Make Me Feel (Like a Natural Man)" (ed. note: Eesh)

||Pat's cover-he-didn't-know-was-a-cover-(because-it's-not-see-episode-6) "I Don't Want To Talk About It" sung by Rod Stewart.
||Most Inspirational Cover (Gary): Shortly after 9/11 Conan had Fountains of Wayne on the show to sing The Kinks song "Better Things." Ray Davies and Bruce Springsteen cover this song (poorly, according to Pat) on the album See My Friends
||Pat's "Heavy Metal" choice was originally by Fleetwood Mac (ed. note: heavy metal?!) Judas Priest (ed. note: now this is heavy metal!) covered "The Green Manalishi (with the Two Prong Crown)"
||Gary: One of the worst songs by one of the best bands is covered by Adam Green - "Kokomo"

||Gary: The Postal Service covers "Against All Odds" by the Jacket-less One
||Gary: Susanna Hoff is super sexy and she sings Eric Clapton's "Bellbottom Blues."
||Pat's Best Beatles Cover: Aerosmith's down and dirty "Come Together" (ed. note: by FAR the best part of that movie).
||Gary shares a song covered by (ed. note: my favorite ban) The Jayhawks: Grand Funk Railroad's "Bad Time."
||Pat's Best Cover OF ALL TIME: Aretha Franklin over Otis' "Respect."
||Pat's Worst Cover OF ALL TIME is, unfortunately, by his vocalist: Robin Zander's cover of Ol' Blue Eyes' "Fly Me To The Moon" from the Heavy-Metal-Covers-The-Chairman album SIN-atra (get it?!).
Gary's "Sizzlin' Links":
||Pat: Giveaway - Eddie Trunk's book "Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal"|
Trivial question: One of UFO's albums from the 80s has a distinct relationship to the Beatles. Which one is it and what is the relation?
||Gary new sign-off: "Keep your feet underground and keep reaching for the starch."
