Why can't Pandora use the right lyrics for anything?

Truly amazing, best band out there!
Fantastic cover. Up there with the best covers of anything.
Great Remake...Sti l l love the original by Rafferty best!
Great Song! Cannot find it on iTunes :(
Have to agree Great Cover!!- Love It!!!
Did enjoy this cover, another you might check out is the Scorpions doing the Who's, cant explain, better than the original, reminds me of when Seal did a Steve Miller cover and my teenage son wanted to tell me that the Seal version was the original, in that case the original was the best in my opinion
I have been obsessed with learning this cover because o the way it was done.
Using the low raw hum of the guitar right before the old sax solos brings the true Foo style in for sure.
This is one of the best cover songs made ever.. I play drums so getting my guitarist to get it has been takin time.
But Dave, lets get some more covers goin eh? Cus your a genius man!
Great f**king cover.
Always liked this song. Remember Gerry Rafferty version when it came out. Haunting. Foo Fighters have captured the feel of the original while adding a slight edge to it. I'm glad they didn't try to arrange it differently.

Just thinking the same thing.

Wish Pandora would list the year of release on stuff like this...anybo d y know the year?
Great rendition of Baker Street!!!
killer guitar tone, such a depressing song. love it

Great cover!
Great treatment of a classic song.
I have to agree, this is better than the orriginal, but not by much.

i'm listening to this song and drinking a free cup of coffee!!
Better than original? Not a chance.
Awesome and mindblowing. . .
I agree, Victor, better than the original and that's no easy feat.
This is an awesome cover. Better than the original, I believe.
This is an awesome cover! What a great song, and a great way of playing it!

Pandora succeds once again in finding the new and interesting. Awesome cover by an awesome band.
Great remix of this.....:)

@iellison - the "booze" to "crack" reference also serves as a great analogy for this cover. The original was booze, this version is crack.

Love this song...love this version...di d n ' t know about it! THANKS Pandora!
I never wanted to hear this song again , not a bad one, i've just been hearing it forever...HO W E V E R , Foo Fighters re-energized this song...i WANNA hear it now!! if that isn't talent, then i dunno what is.
I've always loved the Gerry Rafferty original, but I'm pretty fond of this Foo Fighters cover, too. (Updating "booze" to "crack" = genius.)
Dave Grohl - Rock God!
this version is sick
I'm not usually a fan of covers, but god damn this one is sooooo good
Well, this will date me, but I was a high school kid when the original came out. Nice song. Then I heard the Foo Fighters' version and WOW - great stuff guys. Love their original songs, but I'm ready for more covers, too.

Ol' Jerry must be sayin' "Damn, why didn't I use a guitar instead of that annoying sax." Good job Foo dudes.
I LOVE this remake. I think it outdoes the original - and that does not happen often!
The Foo Fighters just did, with that song, exactly what they do best: Blew me away. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the classics, but Gerry Refferty could not touch this cover.
akleinspam
just one word: bowowowowowo o o w o w o w !
no problem ctrgirlpurpl e ; ) i stand corrected...
certainly more interesting than the original version!
Simply. Amazing.
yyztsejam
Wow, what a great cover! Foo Fighters are so awesome. Grohl has really developed as a musician and writer over the years.

Thanks for the info. Sorry to be a grammarian, but the word is written.
this song was originally wrote by gerry rafferty as a solo artist. his former band was stealers wheel.
the best i've ever heard this song performed. I loved it. Foo Fighters are awesome. Ha Ha I'm gonna go see them next month and you're not.
nuprez
the original is on a permanent loop at most supermarkets .

i agree, great cover by the foos.
Was it John Rafferty from The Beaver Brown Band? Not sure of the name on this one - that wrote this song?
Who wrote this song originally, not the foo fighters for sure!
this cover is brilliant. no more needs to be said.
Gerry Rafferty.

Jerry .. . some one. It took Saturday night fever out of the #1 spot at the time so . . it is good.
