Suprisingly, Frankie Goes to Holleywood did an excellent version of Springsteen's "Born to Run".

Sergio Mendes' cover of Buffalo Springfield's For What It's Worth is superb.

Not bad......at least you could hear what the lyrics were on their version instead of Springsteen mumblin' all over the place!

Check out Isaac's version but the Stranglers one is pretty good - very Doors-like, though I'd say it was different rather than better than Dionne Warwicks.

No way! It's a poor imitation and an insult to a great song!



Chris Farlowe did the original in 1965 (on Immediate); Rod Stewart's version was recorded in 1970

Another fine call from Mr 23.

To which I would add the David Bowie and Sonic Youth (so it's sort of a cover) version of 'Afraid of Americans' which is bloomin' brilliant.

Also two from Mr. Mascis - his acoustic version of Bowie's 'Quicksand' and the Dinosaur Jr version of the Cure's 'Just Like Heaven'.

And given that there's a musical chain type thing going on here - Sebadoh's version of 'Everybody's been burned' is great.

And continuing the chain with my fifth - the Byrd's cover of Dylan's 'Lay Lady Lay'.

Hey that was good - David Bowie to the Byrds in four steps. Do I win a prize?

Three more just popped into my head:

Labelle's version of Van's 'Moonshadow' is a masterpiece - and I don't use that phrase lightly.

Everything But the Girl's cover of Rod's 'I Don't Want to Talk About it'

The Clash's version of Police and Thieves

Good call, though if we're talking punk makeovers then Sid Vicious's Something Else must get a mention.

Helter Skelter - Siouxsie & The Banshees
Gentleman Soldier/Rocky Road to Dublin/Galway Races Medley - The Pogues (sort of cover, arrangement of Trad. songs)
Snake - Fast Freddies Fingertips
Riot in Cell Block No. 9 - Dr. Feelgood
Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself - Elvis Costello (for a slowie)

Also play Motorhead by Primal Scream quite a bit in the car but whether better than the original ??

Agree with comments about great covers from Dexys -
7 Days to long, Breaking Down The Walls of Heartache, even Jackie Wilson says.

The Stranglers Walk on By is top version, as was most of their stuff in the earlyish years

No need to apologise - another good selection.

Another that just sprang to mind is Tricky's cover of Public Enemy's Black Steel?
