    Two covers at one time! Also, I can't believe this is the best video of the Soft Cell version I could find.

    Buddy Holly's original is still far superior to both the Stones and the Dead.


    My favorite cover: Leon Russell and Joe Cocker doing Dylan's "Girl From the North Country" on Mad Dogs & Englishmen

    (sorry, no youtube videos)

    i can't view all the videos

    almost every beatle cover i like more than the originals:

    i call your name - mama's and the papa's
    across the universe - fiona apple
    she's leaving home - tori amos
    try with a little help from my friends - joe cocker
    he said, she said - the black keys
    all you need is love - echo & the bunnymen

    some others i love:

    iron man - the cardigans
    champagne supernova country style - ben folds five
    sally's song - fiona apple

    i'll add more later...

    Although it should be because the Castanets are fucking fantastic.

    I think we can all agree that Colin Farrell's semi-spoof cover of I Fought The Law is the definitive one.

    True, it is pretty terrible and I know it goes against the point of the thread, but I just thought I'd include it for its synth-pop-two-covers-at-onceness.

    12/30 - Together Pangea - Echo
    1/10 - Flesh Eaters - Echoplex (?)
    1/20 - Guster - HOB Anaheim (?)
    1/29 - Patti Smith - Ace (?)
