favorite covers

what are your favorite song covers? among my favs are alanis' grease cover and the pumpkins' landslide cover.

__________
OK, as mentioned this is a duplicate but the original had reached three pages so there is place for a Part Two. However, I will be removing any threadcraps &/or off-topicality. This is strictly for stating the what and the why of your favorite covers. Anyone that wants to ignore this and try different.... you have been warned. [Benedict]

I like that Landslid cover by the pumpkins also.
Can some one help me find these covers on cd
STP did a cover of "Revolutions" and they played that on the radio often but can't find a copy of it. Also I think it was Johnny Rezenck of the goo goo dolls and Fred Durst doing a very good cover of Pink Floyd's cover of "Wish you were here" and I can't find either.

Hole has an awesome cover of Gold Dust Woman (Fleetwood Mac). I also like Fuel's covers of Daniel (Elton John) and Breed (Nirvana).

i used to have a copy of the STP cover but it was a horrible recording. the 'wish you were here', which i also liked, was on the 'a tribute to america' special wasn't it? i dont have the CD but i believe it's there.

Your favorite "covers" ?

With talk of The Atari's cover of 'The Boys of Summer', here is a question. What are your favorite covers?
  • Hoverphonic - 'Shake the Disease'
    A cover of an already excellent Depeche Mode song. The female vocals add a certain dimension to it, along with the "ahh...ahh" echo in the background.
  • Vecrua Salt - 'Somebody'
    Simple Depeche Mode song, made even more basic with this cover.
  • Tori Amos ' Smells Like Teen Spirit'
    I'm a Tori Amos fan and I'm a Nirvana fan, but even I was skeptical that Tori could take an angst rock song and turn it into something piano based , that was pleasant to listen to. Boy was I surprised. This song turned out great .
  • My Ruin - 'Tainted Love'
    The band brings this song into another world. A rock version, with a female vocalist screaming it. Much better than the dissmal Marilyn Manson cover.

Anything on Bryan Ferry's 'These Foolish Things'

Elvis Hitler's 'Yummy Yummy Yummy' [I think there's a lot of similarities between 60's rock and 'speed' metal anyway]

Black Flag's 'Louie Louie'

Inkubus Sukkubus 'Gypsies Tramps and Thieves'

Those are the only ones I can think of offhand; as you can tell, I don't really keep up with new music.

Hoo boy, this will take a while.

P.M Dawn's cover of "Norwegian Wood" by The Beatles. Wow, talk about taking a song and making it your own.

Anthrax's cover of Joe Jackson's "Got the Time"

Badlands' cover of James Taylor's "Fire and Rain." Wow, the emotion in this song is superb. We lost a great vocalist when Ray passed away.

Phil Colins' cover of "Burn Down the Mission" by Elton John

Poison's cover of "Cover of the Rolling Stone"

Sammy Hagar & Melissa Ethridge's cover of "Honky Tonk Woman" by the Rolling Stones (performed on some VH1 special)

Sarah McLachlan's cover of "Dear God" by XTC

Tim Curry's cover of "Summer in the City"

Lisa Loeb and Dweezil Zappa's cover of "Goodbye to Romance" by Ozzy

Pretty much any Metallica song covered by Apocalyptica

I could list a lot more... I collect covers :-)
