Welcome to the latest installment of the Cover-Song Showcase Showdown, in which we present readers with a few covers of a well-known chestnut–and you let us know which version you like best.
Today’s candidate for coverage is “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” the 1967 soul stirrer that Marvin Gaye took to the top of the charts. We’ve got three different versions of “Grapevine” for you to choose from, courtesy of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Kaiser Chiefs, and The Slits; be sure to give your computer some extra bandwidth when you download the CCR version, as it clocks in at around 11 minutes or so.
