I never know if compilations are accepted as nominations for “best albums ever”, but this should be allowed. The best songs performed in the purest musical form known to man.

The Starting Line's version of J. Lo's 'I'm Real' is totally amazing. Mandy Moore's 'Candy' done by Slick Shoes is great too.
Punk Goes Pop 2, however, isn't half as good. Those crabcore, Attack Attack guys are on it, doing that Katy Perry song performed in a style that makes the original sound like the pop-punk version. FAIL. Plus, there's a cover of Santana's 'Smooth', a second cover of 'Baby One More Time' and a non-Mae Shi, TECHNO version of 'See You Again'. WTF? Bring back 2002, please.
