Bonnie Raitt cover

I was in CVS the other day and heard this playing over the house speakers. I recognized the song and was pretty sure it was Bonnie Raitt doing the cover.

Now I love most of her stuff and she is certainly a great slide player, but in this case I don't think her bluesy phrasing does the melody of the song justice. :-k

 

There was the pop music thread a while ago and this song came to my mind as one of the great examples. Yeah, it's middle-of-the-road and not edgy or rockin or any of the stuff us macho guitar slingers find cool. But the melody and lyrics are just so perfect for a pop/love song.
