    Oooh, what a good choice.

    Can't believe I forgot this one.

    I have it on a Mojo CD and as you say a brilliant version that has a real vibe of the time.

    Rumour has it that Jimmy Page played the solo.

    I have an affinity for female folk singers and guitars... therefore I enjoy listening to 'the book of love' by rose polezani and rose cousins as found on you tube. If you've never heard of them it is worth, in my opinion, checking them out as I think their voiced blend really well together.

    Frigid Pink - House of the rising sun
    Rod Stewart - I'd rather go blind, amazing grace
    Bowie - the album Pinups which covers his favourite 60's songs
    Roberta Flack - Killing me softly with his song

    Another unusual one for you. Why on earth wasn't Maggie Bell a huge star?

    The Flying Pickets' version of Yazoo's "Only You" always comes to mind when I think of favorite covers since it was used so beautifully and appropriately at the end of one of my favorite films: Fallen Angels by Wong Kar-Wai.

    Thought I'd revive this thread for this - Sade making a decent fist of a Thin Lizzy classic

    This is a song I previously hated but this cover of 'Brothers in Arms' by Alex Cornish showed me what a great song and an amazing piece of songwriting it is. A beautiful cover and a great arrangement by Alex, if you get a chance to see him go - he deserves more attention, he's a talented chap!

    Revived this thread cos I've just stumbled across this - Allman Brothers (here featuring the always great Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks' interesting guitar technique) doing Van the man's Into the Mystic.

    As they say in American restaurants, enjoy!

    All Along The Watchtower is probably my favourite cover, but I can also recommend Puressence's version of Art Garfunkel's 'Bright Eyes' as being worth a listen IMHO.

    Jack White also does an amazing version of the U2 song Love is Blindness. Much better than the original in my humble opinion!

    Nine Inch Nails version of the Adam Ant song Physical is also immense

    I must respectfully disagree there Rob old friend. The B-side of the FIRST Punk Single was a cover of 'Help' by The Damned in 1976. It was also featured on the 1992 album 'Skip Off School To See The Damned' and, at 1:10 long, has to be just over a minute of pure Punk against the establishment and, in my opinion, not being a Beatles fan, is the best cover of a Beatles song, just edging it over William Shatners 'Lucy in The Sky with Diamonds'.

    I was in a group in the 90's called 'Pogo Daze' and we played around East Anglia. We featured this song and annoyed more than a few Beatles fans: 'Anyone in here like the Beatles?' (cue the room cheering) 'Well, your going to F**king hate this!'.

    I have a some kind of (peculiar) soft spot for a cappella music and therefore I present this Brothers in Arms cover by Finnish group Club for Five.

    Can’t get used to losing you - The Beat
    Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin
    Misirlou - Dick Dale
    Twinkle, twinkle little star - Fredrika Stahl
    Go West - Pet Shop Boys
    When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin
    Shine on Harvest Moon - Leon Redbone
    Guns of Navaronne - The Skatalites
    Jump, jive and wail - Brian Setzer
    Dream of me - Orchestral Manœuvres in the Dark
    Istanbul (not Constantinople) - They Might be Giants
    Jacky - Marc Almond
    Mathilde - Scott Walker
    Stay Awake - Hal Wilner and various artists


    There is an old Victorian Music Hall song about a villainous and unrepentant chimney sweep called Sam Hall who is going to the Gallows. There is a magnificent and chilling version by Peter Sellars that I’ve seen once on TV and I am desperately trying to track a recorded version of. The song has been bowdlerised by countless maudlin Irish Folk and Amercian Country Groups who have succeeded in sucking the guts out of it. The best modern version is by Frank Tovey and Fad Gadget but if anyone knows how to get hold of the Sellars version please let me know.

    Harry,

    I expect that you know that Sellars/Sam Hall is from "Wiltons' - The Handsomest Room In Town", a BBC production shown on Boxing Day 1970.

    It doesn't seem to be commercially available, but there are several torrent sites that show it as available for (ahem) download.

    That's brilliant, thanks Jim. There are odd pieces of obscure music that I've been chasing for twenty or thirty years or more. In the old days it used to mean a trip to HMV or Virgin in Oxford or Tower in Picadilly a four hour search and a punt on an overpriced limited edition CD. Now with the advent of the internet one can search away in the comfort of ones own hose and I've managed to find most of the things I've been looking for, but this is one that has eluded me. I can remember Sellars dressed up as a Victorian hissing and spitting this song and cursing the audience. I think I caught the performance half way through and my recollection was that he was on a talk show - perhaps Wogan. I can remember feeling that it was one of the most electric things I'd seen. I guess these things tend to grow in the memory and actually seeing it again after all these years might be underwhelming but at least I know now where to look. Thanks.

    Just listening to Rory Gallagher at the BBC, I'd forgotten he did this old Sonny Thompson song, made famous by Freddie King.

    I like that Placebo cover of "Running up that Hill"; I will have to look up more of their stuff..

    Found some of my favourites on YT:

    Wall of Voodoo covering "Do It Again" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q27dt631fp4

    and Lords of the New Church "Question of Temperature" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kThCBiKjAUo

    Bow Wow Woo - "I Want Candy" - love the drumming - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMICD3aMZpw

    I have a playlist of cool cover versions, I like it when a band take a classic and give it their own styling. Some have been mentioned before. Muse -Feeling Good, Cake - I Will Survive and a couple of standout ones that haven't.

    16 Horsepower's version of Creedance Clearwater Revival's Bad Moon Rising

    http://youtu.be/xSZI27suwqE

    Fun Lovin' Criminal's version of 10cc's I'm Not In Love.

    http://youtu.be/C8jD-O6pwnI

    In fact FLC's album Mimosa is a pretty cool collection of covers by itself.

    Resurrected this thread for a rare and rather remarkable cover, seeing as how we are having a bit of a Steve Marriott moment.

    many of Eva Cassidy's covers are, for me, better than the original. Over the rainbow, wade in the water, Fields of gold to name a few

    John Campbell - When the Levee Breaks

    I have a whole CD I created of covers of Stormy Monday - everyone different

    That Sade version of still in Love is amazing - really suits her voice.

    This went down a storm at Country 2 Country this year:



    So did this from Dierks Bentley:



    And the Steve n' Seagull post a couple of weeks ago lead me to this. Until the vocals come in, you could be listening to Zep:
