Covered in glory

I may have mentioned it before, but I do like a good cover version.  I also like a bad one.  Most of all, I like an unlikely cover version and delving into the recesses of Spotify I have found some crackers – combinations that you could hardly make up. Some of my favourite unlikely combinations so far are: (with links to the songs for Spotify users)

What next?  Megadeth doing a version of Rainy Days and Mondays?   Chaka Demus & Pliers covering Yes’s Close to the Edge?

I also found some great examples of songs done in a completely diffrent style that really work, but I’ll save them for another day.

    Ah there is nothing like a rotten cover version. I though the Cardigans also did Iron Man but I could be imagining it

    The last song I heard on my mp3 player on the way home was Billy Bragg’s When Will I see You Again (Precious Moments). It really works!

    The worst cover version by someone who you think ought to make a decent stab of it is Fairytale of New York by Christy Moore. But that’s only assuming you have excluded Plácido Domingo’s The Broadway I Love CD.
