Reel Big Fish - Take One Me = best cover ever

And I'd like to add a song which is the worst cover in the world. Avril Lavigne singing System of a Down's Chop Suey. It's an incredibly painful experience.

Well the original is quite a painful experience if you're not a fan of SOAD, luckily I am...

I like what Me First & The Gimme Gimmes are doing...nothing but covers in a rockier way...great stuff...
And a mention goes to Save Ferris for their cover of Build Me Up Buttercup...

No.

'Respect' by Aretha Franklin has to be up there too.
'Rocket Man' by Kate Bush.
'Wonderwall' by Ryan Adams.

i'd like to add on the "hurt" cover of jhonny cash. it's astoundingly sad.
another hearbreaking version is sonic youth doing carpenters in "rock star" (don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?)
it sends chills up your spine.
another really good cover is Cat power's "wild is the wind".

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

"Frozen" by Madonna -- just kidding!

Most of the times, the original is the best, but there are quite a few times that I find the cover better (Herb Alpert's versions of "This Guy's in Love With You", "Taste of Honey" and "Last Tango in Paris" come to mind, as well as "Please Mr. Postman" by The Carpenters).

Sinead O'Connor singing Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U".

Not sure if this is strictly speaking a cover because although Prince wrote it I'm not sure if he released it before or after she did. Prince's version with Rosie Gaines is also excellent.

Henin......Myskina......Agy
