Saturday video break: Crimson and Clover

Song #89 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Crimson and Clover”, originally by Tommy James and the Shondells, and covered by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. Here’s the original:

Can’t say I’ve ever been a big fan of that song. Nor can I say exactly why I’ve never been crazy about it, I just haven’t been. And wow, the Sixties, man. Like, groovy and all that.

Basically the same song, except it’s been Joan Jett-ified, which means it’s way cooler. All dues respect here, but I’ll take Door #2. What do you think?
