There are string-quartet, jazz, reggae, Spanish, techno, folk, blues, soul, experimental, country, rap and hard-rock versions.....and plenty of others as well.
Everyone has a favorite....and I'm no exception.

Miles Davis. There are many good and great ones but nothing rises to the level of his IMHO.

I had higher hopes for this thread. :(
I wanted it to rival The Wal*Mart Thread......'cause, like, c'mon.....everybody's heard like 739 versions of it and has had a chance to form an opinion.
Billie's version makes it sound like someone's about to get murdered on Beale St.
