Covers that you might not have known are covers: "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer"

"One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer"

I thought this one might be a little obscure, but since it was covered on Glee, I guess it's well enough known.

Familiar version: George Thorogood (1977)
Additional cover: John Lee Hooker (1966)
Original versions: Amos Milbourn (1953) and John Lee Hooker ("House Rent Boogie," c. 1950?)

George Thorogood's version is actually a medley of "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, and John Lee Hooker's "House Rent Boogie."

I'd never heard this one before. I really like it.
