              Aretha Franklin&#39;s <em>Respect</em>. So good, she made it her signature song.&nbsp; Hardly anyone remembers that Otis Redding wrote and recorded it.

                      <p>Primus&#39; cover of Pink Floyd&#39;s &quot;Have a Cigar&quot;&nbsp; </p><p>That song has such a &quot;fat&quot; sound from the keyboard and later on through the bass, and Les just fattens it up even more.&nbsp; Great, great version.&nbsp;</p>

                              Me and Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin...I heard the original Kris Kristofferson version and thought it was terrible.
