Earlier this week, Beck teamed up with a 157-piece orchestra to perform David Bowie's 1977 classic Sound and Vision. "It was an experiment and an opportunity to try something completely irrational," Beck told Rolling Stone. "I attempted to conjure some scenario that could only exist in this kind of space for a onetime performance. It's doing something you could never do on a tour. I was thinking a lot about Busby Berkeley films and multiples of musicians and dancers."
Now we have a question for you: what is your favorite live cover song of all time? It can be anything from Joe Cocker playing "With a Little Help From My Friends" at Woodstock to Nirvana's cover of "The Man Who Sold the World" during their Unplugged special to Pearl Jam's frequent take on Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" during their gigs. Vote for whatever song you want, but please only vote once and only for a single song.
