Remembering when cigarettes were so cool...
that even religious leaders trying to make religion cool and relevant would feature a cig on a book cover. Here is the cover of the paperback version of Malcolm Boyd's 1965 Are You Running with Me, Jesus? Boyd was an Episcopal priest active in the civil rig...

Country Club 54: Wake Up, Irene
If covers and their success is one indication of a song with a big impact, another deeper sign is an answer song that becomes a hit in its own right. Occasionally, an answer song equals and surpasses the original and, more rarely, stands on its own. Hank Th...
