Joe Cocker just murdered 'One' on Jay Leno

Joe Cocker recorded a cover of 'One' on his most recent record - all he does is covers - and he performed it on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno tonight. He totally murdered it. The man can't sing. Were it not for the backup singers it would have been comedic.

Why U2? Why did you give him permission to do this to your song? WHY!?

Didn't hear it, but I feel your pain, I can't imagine Joe Cocker singing that song. U2 seem pretty flexible in terms of who they allow to do covers of their songs - i.e. just about anyone who asks!

I just saw it too. Man, I love Joe Cocker's old stuff...but his voice is shot. Maybe people will finally stop complaining bout Bono's voice if they heard that.

Gov't Mule did a great version of One on Last Call a couple weeks ago that was actually quite good.

I don't know how drunk I was when I actually purchased this song on iTunes but .

I'm glad I didn't see Leno tonight.

I imagine that if Britney Spears did a solo on the triangle in her next single, you'll like it.

I felt bad for him while he was singing. He didnt even finish singing the end of each word. He would sing some trash like "wha" when it was supposed to be "one". Then it looked like he was dying when he started or tried to get into the song. He must really need money.

Has he been really ill in the past few years or something? I know he's older and all...but he didn't seem well.

One (The Heart Attack Mix).

That was a pretty cool version. He didn't sing from the point of view of a person whose head was invaded by lepers. He sang as if he were the leper. I found it entertaining.

Cheers,

J
