Prompted by something asrana just told me...

What are your favourite, and least favourite, cover versions?



Least favourite cover versions :
'Notorious' by Puff Daddy and Notorious BIG has to come top, just because. Puff Daddy's 'Missing You' (cover of 'Every Breath You Take') is right up there, too - there are no words for how much I loathe it. The recent cover of Bryan Adams' 'Heaven'. The R&B cover of Roxy Music's 'More Than This'. 'Enjoy The Silence', Tori Amos. 'Like A Prayer', Madhouse. 'AntMusic', Robbie Williams - I wish I were joking. I'm sure I'll think of more as the day wears on.

Favourite cover versions :
'Sex Dwarf', Leaether Strip, is right at the top at the moment. 'All Tomorrow's Parties' by both Japan and Apoptygma Berzerk. 'Strange Little Girl', Tori Amos. 'Eleanor Rigby', Godhead. 'Tainted Love', Marilyn Manson -no, really. 'Is There Something I Should Know?', AllSTARS - absolutely fantastic Duran cover. Speaking of Duran, their version of 'Crystal Ship'. 'Jolene', Queen Adreena (How could I forget?). 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling', The Human League, purely for comedy value. 'No Regrets', Midge Ure.

There will be more. ~smile~ Just need to think of them.

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
