Dylan Cover #617 Huntley and Niall Horan "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" Live

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Huntley and Niall Horan  playing "Knockin' On Heaven's Door'"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
The song that seems to have been covered by every and any one, but when originally recorded it it was featured on one of Dylan's oddest releases yet. A straight ahead mournful number that just seems to work somehow and like a lot of Dylan tunes has grown beyond it's humble beginning. The song is really a testament to his amazing songwriting which can seem simple at times. The tune has invaded culture (possibly because of all the covers) and I would wager it is one of Dylan's most widely known tunes...


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
This is RtBE's first time hearing both Huntley and Niall Horan as we are not Voice fans. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A totally fine, straight ahead cover of the song that doesn't do a whole lot, except deliver the tune.
