Who did it better?

Many songs get covered or re-interpreted, the covers often being more successful than the original.

Here are some cover versions of one song, let us know in the comments which is your favourite, or if you don?t like any of them.

I Just Want to Make Love to You” is a song written by Willy Dixon and first recorded by Muddy Waters as ?Just Make Love to Me” in 1954.

The Animals on their 1965 EP ?In The Beginning There Was Early Animals?.

Mungo Jerry on their 1971 album ?Electronically Tested?.
