John Mellencamp & Me’Shell Ndegeocello – “Wild Night” – (1994)

Covering a Van Morrison song is always a risky proposition as he is amazing. But the man formerly known as John Cougar Mellencamp – with help from singer Me’Shell Ndegeocello – really knock this one out of the park. The song has a funky feel to the bassline and pretty sweet guitar. It was a big hit too, topping out at #3 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart.

Tom Petty – “You Wreck Me” – (1994)

Well, I guess it’s Tom Petty week this week and this is our 1990s entry (if you haven’t noticed, lately Monday has been an 80s tune, Wednesday is from the 90s, and Friday has been a track from 2000+). Wildflowers was another Petty solo album and “You Wreck Me” wasn’t the biggest single from the album but it’s a pretty good one that is kind of the standard Petty fare.
