    Barry Adamson and Anita Lane doing These Boots Are Made For Walking.

    For those of you who don't know it yet, Barry Adamson is the coolest cat in the world!

    Snake River Conspiracy - Lovesong
    First heard this in the electric ballroom, and spent months hunting for what it was afterwards only to be disappointed by the band in general. I'm surprised no-one's posted it yet!

    Tori Amos - Smells Like Teen Spirit

    Again, surprised no-one posted this one! I never really "heard" the lyrics to this song until she covered it.

    Deftones - Ghosts

    This is a pretty straight-laced cover, I was just surprised to hear the Deftones do it! I love the original hard.

    my absolute favourite cover version REM doing First We Take Manhatten isn't on youtube but this one runs it a close second.

    this is pretty sweet too, Cat Power doing Sonic Youth's Schizophrenia mixed with Skip Spence's Weighted Down.

    British 80's grindcore monsters Concrete Sox improve Metallica's Whiplash no end

    and the Young @ Heart Choir are phenomenal (if you've not seen the documentary then you really should)

    "Oh, those Russians..." Rasputin is an awesome song whoever does it, but that is great.

    Love this one:

    Jonathan Coulton, Baby Got Back
