Mr Blue Sky - The Delgados
Final Fantasy - Peach, Plum, Pear
i was stating...
Everyone who doesn't agree is a fool.
are probably correct.
that probably is THE greatest cover ever, with Hendrix's '..Watchtower' hot on its heels. Other notables are 'Head on' by Pixies & 'Mr Grieves' by TVOTR.
that would be incredible...
I see a Darkness

Michael j Sheehy - Swing low
with my Beatles-hating friend at school over the Vines and he used 'I'm Only Sleeping' as an example of Craig Nicholls' songwriting skills.
i played this when i was DJing at the purple turtle on friday and it REALLY PISSED OFF a chap DJing later, so he went and played the original at the start of his set.
Just for Mike Patton's 'eurgh' before the guitar solo
doing Karma Police and Tonight Tonight at the gig last night.
Did the RHCP do that?
Dont make me fucking laugh.
they've made it their own and totally different from the original
the Bob Dylan version
</subtle Day Today reference>
and the Nirvana Vaselines covers are nowhere near as good as the originals
.....The Moog Cookbook
Watchtower gets my vote. Not particularly a big fan of Jimi, but he OWNS this tune.
Corgan's/SP - Landslide. This is the perfect cover song. Billy makes a bold choice and it pays off big time!
Bowie - Pinups, Waterloo Sunset, Kingdom Come, Amsterdam etc. In fact, Bowie covers are always better than the original except his Iggy covers...which invitably are shit for some reason.
Echo & the Bunnymen - Friction, Dylan's Baby Blue (while their versions of Paint It Black and People Are Strange fall short of the originals...and I don't really even like the Doors). Ian's version of Leonard Cohen's Lover Lover Lover is killer, too.
Siouxsie's Helter Skelter is a sonic earthquake!
low - i started a joke
stina nordenstam - purple rain
"I've Been Loving You Too Long"
