Resolved Question: Joe Cocker: Your favorite
One of mine, his cover of Everybody Hurts
BQ: Know of another artist with similar arm movements as Cocker's onstage antics?
BQ2: Anyone know why his work has consisted mostly of covering others' songs with relatively few original songs?
Thanks! @PeePaw: Thanks, I never looked at his covers that way. Btw, didn't mean to imply Joe doesn't have a good body of his own works. Thanks, Birdy; good to see you. And yes, he does resemble Joe even in looks a bit. A sugaree: LOL! I remember when Belushi mocked Joe when Joe was on the stage of SNL. @Kelly B: Yes indeed!!! That's a beautiful, heart wrenching song and one I hadn't heard before. Thanks so much.

Resolved Question: Does Joe Cocker sing
My mom is sure that her wedding dance was a cover of Chicago's "Color My World", but we can't find a cover by Joe Cocker (the artist she thinks sang it). Is there a cover of this song by him, or another artist who sounds similar? It would have come out before 1980. It is NOT by Petrula Clark!

Resolved Question: Why does Joe Cocker dance
why does Joe Cocker moves like a wacko while he sings? i don't mean to be disrespectful to any joe cocker fans, i love his music, but is that any kind of condition due to any illness, substance abuse, or is ite merely just a show-off dance?
