    Here's Cornershop doing their Indian flavored version of a well known Kinks tune.


    And here's Golden Earring covering the Byrds and taking that song higher than just eight miles.

    The first time I heard this, it brought a lump to my throat.





    ... and I'll admit, on this one... I actually lost it:



    It's funny, I never liked that song. I heard several covers but just the way Ms Hynde sings it just ripped me apart.

    Since my last was kind of heavy, here's some fun ones:



    I love that and never get tired of it.



    Good for a laugh but this style gets tiresome after a while.

    and of course, I saved the best for last:



    I always get a chuckle from this. I was a fan of the cartoon (don't judge me) and The Ramones doing a cover is a bonus for me.

    Although she did memorable covers, Kirsty MacColl was a great songwriter in her own right, who herself was covered by other artists. Here's Tracy Ullan's cover of They Don't Know




    and the original



    both are wonderful

    It's also very clear that the Late MacColl was very influenced by Phil Spector when she wrote that song, Tracy Ullman brought out that "wall of sound" better than MacColl in her version. But Ullman doesn't have that "I'm aching" projection in her voice that MacColl had.

    Aaaahhhhhhh Ooooooooooo

    Adam Sandler covers Warren Zevon's Werewolves of London
    I'm not a big fan of Sandler's acting or singing .... but think he does a surprisingly good job on this.

    One of Dylan's lesser known songs, but a great one. Love the lyrics and this cover is pretty good.

    Oh, the gentlemen are talking and the midnight moon is on the riverside
    They’re drinking up and walking and it is time for me to slide
    I live in another world where life and death are memorized
    Where the earth is strung with lovers’ pearls and all I see are dark eyes


    A c0ck is crowing far away and another soldier’s deep in prayer
    Some mother’s child has gone astray, she can’t find him anywhere
    But I can hear another drum beating for the dead that rise
    Whom nature’s beast fears as they come and all I see are dark eyes


    They tell me to be discreet for all intended purposes,
    They tell me revenge is sweet and from where they stand, I’m sure it is.
    But I feel nothing for their game where beauty goes unrecognized,
    All I feel is heat and flame and all I see are dark eyes.


    Oh, the French girl, she’s in paradise and a drunken man is at the wheel
    Hunger pays a heavy price to the falling gods of speed and steel
    Oh, time is short and the days are sweet and passion rules the arrow that flies
    A million faces at my feet but all I see are dark eyes

    Here's another:



    I swear it's got a different lead vocal than the single I bought back in the '70s.

    If we're talking Johnny Cash:



    The guitar and organ solos always remind me of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.
