Despite Guns N Roses having a much more well-known cover of "Sympathy" and an unknown but very worthy cover by alt/indie bands Band of Skulls and John and Jehn that you should listen to if you get the chance, I decided to pair another virtually unknown version by Horacio Hernandez to a cover by Jane's Addiction.
I cast my vote is for Jane's Addiction. I do love the flavor of Hernandez's rendition, but the Jane's cover is simply stunning. Both added their own distinct sounds to the song, but I feel that all the whoops and slight echoes give Jane's Addiction's version a refreshingly wild and slightly sinister feel, which grabs my attention on every level. With an official tally (including mine) of 5-1 in favor of Jane's Addiction, they clearly took this one. Not only that, but the overwhelming majority of you prefer it to the original by The Rolling Stones! And this surprised me.
Thanks for playing along, and be sure to come back and see me on the 15th!
