9. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - 'All Along The Watchtower'

Jimi Hendrix's cover of Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" forever changed how everybody hears the song - even Dylan himself. "He had such talent, he could find things inside a song and vigorously develop them," Dylan said a 1995 interview.  "He found things that other people wouldn't think of finding in there. He probably improved upon it by the spaces he was using. I took license with the song from his version, actually, and continue to do it to this day."
