    Bravo! I love this cover and listen to it all the time. My other one along this line is Dynamite Hack, Boyz in the Hood: http://youtu.be/aeL9gagV_VA

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    Just a wonderful pop/rock version so well produced and performed. Love it!

    Sonic Youth cover of the Carpenter's "Superstar" is awesome! http://youtu.be/Y21VecIIdBI

    Yes, the video is pretty lame...
    Very soulful song/version.
    For that matter, The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore was originally recorded by Frankie Valli. Not sure it technically qualifies as a cover as neither of them originally wrote it, but I do love the Walker Brothers.

    Damn I miss Oasis.
    Agree to disagree, I guess. I did see Oasis live about 7-8 years ago in Chicago, and for what it's worth they were way better than I expected.
    By the way, even Noel Gallagher thinks the Ryan Adams version is superior (2008 Spin interview)

    Liam told me he hates "Wonderwall." It's the one song he literally hates singing.
    That's interesting, because he would never say that to me. Well, I hate him singing it, too. Liam doesn't sound like he did ten years ago. Your voice and your body change. We've never got it right. It's too slow or too fast. I think Ryan Adams is the only person who ever got that song right. I'd love to do the Ryan Adams version, but in front of 60,000 Oasis fans that wouldn't be possible.

    Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone - Ziggy Marley
    Jolene - White Stripes
    What I've Done - Marie Digby
    You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go - Miley Cyrus (yeah, I know, but she does this song justice)

    I can't believe I forgot that one. Probably my favorite cover ever.

    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    Quick Oasis note: a DJ on the radio in Colorado commented that he had dinner with Oasis about 10+ years ago and Liam and Noel guarded their food like they were in prison.

    I did get to see Ryan Adams open for Oasis a few years back. Great show.

    That's very interesting, I had no idea they hated their own song. Shouldn't really surprise me though because most of the time those two are dicks. I know Thom Yorke of Radiohead hates "Creep" and refuses to play it. Even Led Zeppelin hate "Stairway to Heaven" and didn't want to play it in their final years of touring. I love "The Perfect Drug" by Nine Inch Nails but Trent Renzor doesn't like that song and has never played it live. Musicians are a finicky bunch.

    Re: Favorite Cover Songs

    My favorite cover and IMO the best cover ever is Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt.
