Song of the Day: 'For What It's Worth' by Stevie Nicks


What a surprise to stumble upon Stevie Nicks's cover of "For What It's Worth," the 1966 Buffalo Springfield protest song. Nicks has apparently added the song to her setlist during her current tour, so decided to make it official. 

This isn't the first gender flip of Stephen Stills's classic: Holly Beth Vincent released her version in 1982 as the first single from her confusingly titled solo album, "Holly and the Italians," which was also the name of her recently imploded band. Holly's was deeply experimental whereas Stevie sticks to the original arrangement. Have a listen below.

Brasil '66's version is delightful.
