Good covers.
 
Seeing as no-one actually started this thread.

Nick Cave's version of running scared.

Cash's version of One, which nearly makes me think it's not by u2 (see also Sting cover)

Diamanda Galas - pick a song and it's a great cover

Albert Kuvezin's cover of love will tear us apart.

Coltrane's 'my favourite things' (insanity itself)

Roland Kirk's version of I say a little prayer.

Ground Zero's cover of Roland Kirk's cover of I say a little prayer.

Otomo Yoshihide's NJE version of Preach.

The Fall's version of I can see the grass grow/ Victoria.

The Galactic Symposium's cover of YMCA (download this song NOW heathens)

I could go on. Someone else play.

Yesyesyes....anything from 'Plays Standards' by Ground Zero. I imagine most of that record would be considered 'covers'.

I've heard somebody disagree with this heavily in the past on the board, but I love Sonic Youth's cover of Moist Vagina. I like it more than the original

how did i forget, superstar by SY

atari 2600 06.09.2006 08:45 PM

I made a huge list once (as I am wont to do) & just never saved it from a post at the old board with the same topic.

There's no need to save stuff here at the new board, thankfully, because the Search feature actually works exceedingly well!

Hallelujah!

Steel Pole Bathtub's cover of "What I Need".

Loop's cover of The Pop Group's "Thief Of Fire" completely slays, as does Godflesh's cover of Loop's "Straight To Your Heart."
