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.

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

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!
