    YES. Awesome cover. Tom Morello came out and played this song with Bruce when I saw Springsteen a few days before Coachella, it was incredible.

    I don't think you'll ever top the original:



    But all the same, I like Tunstall's version a lot.

    Two of my favorite covers have to be Muse's take on Frankie Valli 's "Can't Take My Eyes off You" and Franz Ferdinand's take on Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For." Brilliant (in my opinion)!

    I also do like a few other covers that FF has done as well, like The Beatles' "It Won't Be Long" (if you don't mind them putting their own spin) and Britney's "Womanizer". Kaiser Chiefs have a pretty good rendition of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" as well.

    Florence and the Machine's album is disappointing overall, but the lady belts it out, for sure.

    Cover of Candi Staton's You've Got The Love.

    not sure if this necessarily qualifies as "really f*cking good," but when I saw them perform a cover of the Eurythmics 'Here Comes the Rain Again' it was a cover that stuck with me. I think I saw them perform the song either at the Glass House in 2003 or at the El Rey in 2001. Couldn't find a setlist for either, but I will guess it was the El Rey show. Here's a version from a show at Emo's on Nov. 10, 2001....

    This probably won't last long on youtube, but...

    Arcade Fire's short, sweet, and slightly knowing partial cover of Cyndi Lauper's Money Changes Everything.

    This dreadful song was a number 1 hit all across Europe in 1977:




    And, this, is how you turn a ridiculous disco confection by a Spanish flamenco/disco group into pure sex (warning: contains severe theramin abuse):

    I looked for this thread when that Thom Yorke "All For the Best" cover was released and couldn't find it. Looked likes no one has posted yet so here goes:

    A pretty gorgeous track, imo. Here's the original:

    awesome





    now I'm way partial to Tortoise, they are my favorite band ever, but I believe they (along with B'P'B) did an excellent job on this one.

    I'd have to say I even like this better than Springsteen's original.. i can already hear the nays of the naysayers

    Def not better than the original, but they played it with their own style;

    That whole album is really fantastic. Well, 6 or 7 songs are.

    I love Pig, but the correct answer was DEVO'S Head Like A Hole. (But there's no vid anywhere.)

    I'm sure this was probably on the NIN thread but I don't read it...

    Warm Leatherette-Trent Reznor/Peter Murphy



    Which reminds me




    Finally, there used to be a website called "The Art Of The Mixtape" where they had a challenge to make a 90 min daisy chain of covers. That is, you start with a cover, then the next song is by the artist that was covered in the last song and so on...the last song would be a cover of a song by the first artist. I was never able to get very far.

    I tried to do this for quite awhile. I can't get beyond 5 songs. Damn people covering archaic songs that don't really have modern covers, thus dooming me to the 60s.
