A couple of versions of All Along the Watchtower by Bob Dylan...

The Jimi Hendrix Experience..
While I wasn't born yet I am hard pressed to think of a version of a song that conjurers up a specific era more than this song ..





The next two versions are from Battlestar Galactica 2004 - 2009

The studio version to an important battle from the show:



The same version live , opening accompanied by Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck). While the sound isn't great on this version, it must have been great to see:




Lisa Gerrard
More commonly known as the female half of Dead Can Dance, if you don't know who they are they are worth checking out and depending on the style\scene you are in have achieved a rather legendary status. Anyone that has seen the movie The Mist has heard them in the crushing closing sequence. Some folks may not even know they were listening to Lisa Gerrard though as her vocal abilities have been used in a huge number of movies. The biggest are Gladiator, Whalerider, Black Hawk Down, The Insider , The Passion of the Christ, Mission Impossible II, Tears of the Sun, Priest and various other films.

Queen with David Bowie and Annie Lennox doing Under Pressure at the Concert for Life..

I can't think of anyone that could have duplicated the stage presence of the great Freddy Mercury but on this version at this show, I feel Annie Lennox comes close...

Not a classic per say.
But a good background to all the pop songs of the last 50 years.

I think this qualifies as alternate but at a minimum, it qualifies as "trance" for old fogies like me. According to the Ebola care guide, old is over 40 with a disease, like high blood pressure or someone who wears sweater vests with cargo shorts !
