Hey, Joe!

From Jesus to Joe. "Hey Joe" is a traditional ballad, though it's associated with the legendary Jimi Hendrix. We've uploaded a clip of one of the numerous versions the guitar-playing genius recorded of the song, with him plucking the chords with his teeth and all. With the clip we've included Willy Deville's mariachi version, together with Franco Battiato's mournful rendition, transformed into a damning indictment of domestic violence. Which one do you like best?
