Best cover versions??

I'm just wondering what people here think are the best cover versions, if there is such a thing seeming that most cover versions just ruin the original song Anyway, I've just recently come across Mary J. Blige's cover/duet of U2's "One". It is really spine-tingling stuff. On paper it looks like Bono and Mary singing together shouldn't work coz their styles are so differant but this version just blew me away. I think they performed it together at Live 8 during the summer. I highly recommend everyone to check it out

It's not an official release but I have a bootleg of Elliott Smith covering John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" It's reaaalllyy good. And Aimee Mann's cover of "One" is good as well.

Stephen Stills did a cover of Harry Nilsson's 'Everybody's Talkin' on his 'Stills Alone' album. It's done in typically Stills's style, but it's okay.

I know for sure that one of the worst cover versions EVER done is The Dixie Chicks' cover of Stevie Nicks' Landslide. They sooooooooooooooooooo ruined that song.

The Spinners - "Cupid" and "Working My Way Back to You Babe"

With all due respect to Sam Cooke and The Four Seasons.

IMO the best cover of them all is Joe Cocker - "With A Little Help From My Friends".

When I was a kid in the 70s they used to do Disco versions of every song you could think of...I liked that cheesey stuff.

I also like when anyone remakes a Bob Dylan tune into an upbeat rocker with pleasant vocals (Byrds, Sonny and Cher, Turtles, etc.)

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

"I don't know that I changed all that much. They just found somebody worse." - Aging tennis bad boy Jimmy Connors, referring to John McEnroe, in 1984.

There can never be too many "Sister Slams!"

I love Tori Amos' cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit, love that song anyway but that was an awesome cover of the song, redone in her own style. Then again she does quite a few covers, particularly in her live shows, she's done an amazing version of Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of These) and also the Kylie song Can't Get You Out Of My Head. Amazing!

Polish group Goya also made a cover also made a cover oif this song and I have to say they made a fantastic job. It's a very delicate, ballad version with a wonderful voice of Magda Wojcik- group lead vocalist. Worth listening
