What is your favourite cover version?

I know technically this one doesn't count as it wasn't physically released or even studio recorded but its pretty much the dogs b******s!

Hard to pick just one!

If I had to pick just one, probably Twist & Shout - The Beatles

But also:

Chains - The Beatles
I Want It That Way - Steel Panther (awesome cover of The Backstreet Boys!)
Uptown Girl - Westlife
You Raise Me Up - Westlife
How Deep Is Your Love - Take That

The Saturdays version of 'Crashing Down' is far superior to The Nolans 1981 original.

I love to hear my most favorite singer James Otto cover "Turn The Page" from one of his most favorite singers, Bob Seger.

God bless you and them always!!!

Annie Lennox- No More I Love You's- made such a good cover that it sounds like it was originally hers.

I also love Donna Summer- Macarthur Park

Sarah Vaughan's take on Marvin's "Inner City Blues" and Lou Rawl's version of Brenda Holloway's "You've Made Me So Very Happy" are about as great as it gets.
