It takes much courage to make an oddly syncopated version of one of the biggest hits of one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

In the following years, various artists re-recorded the composition of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and gave their personal touches to it, as did the music soul singer Otis Redding. But nobody was as bold as the Devo, U.S. group inspired by futuristic concepts and visuals, a rock mechanical and sarcastic verses. The band formed by students of Kansas launched its version of "Satisfaction" in 1978. The unusual interpretation that I gave to the Rolling Stones hit of change included the famous guitar riff, highlight the sound of drum and bass rhythm creating a futuristic robotic and include references. Bold and creative, I upgraded to a classic rock sound that would dominate the aesthetics of pop-rock '80s.

Launched in 1967 at the height of the hippie movement, "People Are Strange" was one of the great successes of the group The Doors. Written by Jim Morrison and guitarist Robby Krieger, the song expresses the feeling of social maladjustment in a depressive atmosphere. Although a product of the most representative groups of hippie counterculture, the song managed to survive the end of the dream of "peace and love" and win an update in 1987 from a vision also not very optimistic about the 80's British group Echo & The Bunnymen.

Original Music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLUYf6cekMA
The rock was still in gestation when Bobby Troup wrote "Route 66" in 1946. He probably never imagined that his creation would become not only one of the hymns as well as a new genre of songs that gained most versions made by major groups and artists of pop-rock. The verses composed in reference to the mythical highway that cuts through the United States were originally sung by Nat King Cole. But the affinity of the lyrics of "Route 66" with the libertarian ideals of the rock became an anthem for the youth in the 60s, mainly thanks to versions made by Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. Four decades after its release, this classic rock received involuntary treatment in more electronic version done by Depeche Mode and launched in 1987. The fusion of the most characteristic elements of pop-rock sound of the '80s with the original melody and the verses that show "Route 66" can get better with the passing years.

One of the biggest hits of the Beatles is not a Beatles song. "Twist and Shout" was written by Phil Medley and Bert Russell and originally recorded by The TopNotes group in 1961. She won soon after a first version with The Isley Brothers which was quite successful. But it was in 1963 with the release of the first album of the four boys from Liverpool fabulous song that soared in popularity. The Beatles transformed a typical rock'n'roll with elements that characterized the first songs of the genre into something totally new to the standards of the rock until then. More rapid and heavy, with the sound of the guitars more prominent, with a voice hoarse and aggressive, the Beatles made ​​it a classic and one of the songs most expressive posture anarchic rock.
