          Franz Ferdinand covers "Call Me" in two versions, the second is a duet with La Roux...

            This cover is in every respect better than the original.

                From the album The Moog Cookbook released in the mid-nineties, this is a cover of Green Day's "Basket Case". The album was recorded using old analog synthesizers and effects, including a Moog or two. This tune winds up sounding like a Mike Post theme crossed with a Doobie Brothers hit (namely Hill Street Blues and What A Fool Believes). Oh, and there are references to the Captain and Tenille as well. I think it is utterly brilliant.

                  That's completely demented..... in a good way, of course.

                  As is this bastardization of Nirvana from the same collection, that seems to have escaped from George Clinton's mothership.....

                      Outstanding cover!!

                      I'm real cautious about covers because they come with the inevitable comparison. There are also different degrees of success. Most often the covers are decent. Sometimes they can be atrocious i.e. Sheryl Crow doing "Sweet Child O' Mine" or Dolly Parton's HORRENDOUS MASACRE OF "Stairway To Heaven". Then you have AWESOME covers where whoever does it really pulls it off and surprises you like Dave's "California Girls", Black Crows doing "Hard To Handle", or ZZ Top nailing the Sam and Dave tune "I Thank You". Of course pulling up the rear is the TRULY ASTOUNDING level where the cover is so incredible it actually is equal to or can make a strong case of being better than the original. Now, this is the rarest of levels because it just doesn't happen that often even with the mindboggeling number of covers that have been played throughout history. This level is reserved for covers like Jimi Hendrix doing "All Along The Watchtower", Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and one of my all time favorites; Jeff Healey covering "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"! This is all my 2 pennies... I'm embed challenged but I'll try to post the last one I mentioned. If it don't work its on youtube.
