A particularly angry article in the Times Online about cover versions got me thinking. What's your favourite cover version and which do you hate?

I'm inclined to agree with the Madonna 'American Pie' comments, that was really wrong Shocked as for favourites I'll cheat and go for 'Five Years' by the Sultans Very Happy

Worst Cover

Best- Johnny Cash- Personal Jesus

Worst- I think most cover versions don't do the original justice

Apart from the Sultans ones obviously, I'd go for Submission by Ian Brown - cover of the Sex Pistols.

I think both of the following are fantastic:

Will Oldham's cover of Mariah Carey's 'Can't Take That Away From Me'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkM51PaW2dw

Final Fantasy's cover of Bloc Party's 'This Modern Love':

my mate( who is about 135 years old and just about the biggest rockabilly fan i know..........with a devil of a quiff to match) says that the sultans cover of red caddilac is fucking superb( and may i add that hes got n played me the original by a bloke called bob luman) i think the sultans caught the essence of the rockabilly styleeeeeee...considering at the time they were such young men. how nobody took there musical prowess seriously i shall never know.xx


love you.xx

That is truly awful. Let's have a minute of silence while we think about what they've done.

I think it sounds AWFUL too....but at least they've got good taste in music...they must like the sultans so cover their song.........maybe they're bringing the sultans to a new audience...........If only Johnny Cash had covered the Sultans....before he went to join Elvis and Wilde ting

......but it does burn!!! ouch!!!!!!!!! Surprised....maybe Sultans fan Lily Allan would do a better job!
