Tune Time - Knockin' on Heaven's Door

This song was written and performed by Bob Dylan for the soundtrack of the 1973 film Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. It reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Guns N' Roses recorded a studio version of it in 1990 for Days of Thunder's soundtrack, which was later slightly modified for the 1991 album ‘Use Your Illusion II’. Released as the fourth single from the album, it reached #2 in the UK singles chart. I like Bob Dylan’s version, as well, but slightly prefer this one.

  2. GNR did a good job with this song - it was a monster hit. They crashed and burned out bad though :(
