Bring it on Home to Me: A Tribute to Sam Cooke (Video)

Sam Cooke is my all time favorite singer, and Bring it on Home to Me is maybe his best song, or, at least, maybe his most widely covered. I had the idea the other day to string together some of the best covers into one ultimate version, as a tribute to one of the most talented singers the world has ever known. I don't own the rights to this song or any of these versions, I just wanted to do a tribute to a singer that I love a lot, and judging by the talent I put together in this video, lots of other people do too.

I'm actually pretty proud of this video. I've made a lot of videos, but this was the most fun and hopefully the one that will be the most popular. Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think:

That was very cool. So many good tunes for such a short career. And also one weird death.

Typical Van Morrison just mumbling through the song, but I really like him.

Wow. Most covered song ever?

I just googled it: According to the Guinness Book of World Records, "Yesterday" is the most covered songs ever, with over 3,000 versions of the song. Wow.

As a side note, White Christmas is the most widely covered Christmas song.
