    Favourite covers (plus the original/or the one you know)

    I thought we already had a covers thread, but a search for "cover" in thread titles rendered no results. Thread for posting covers, and the originals (or at least the one you first knew of, even if it wasn't the original per se).

    London Grammar - Wicked Game
    from Chris Isaak

    Florence and the Machines - Addicted to Love
    from Robert Palmer

    Miley Cyrus - Jolene
    from Dolly Parton

    Live - Walk the Line
    from Johnny Cash

    Nouvelle Vague - Master and Servant
    from Depeche Mode

    Green day - Hybrid Moments

    TwentyOneTwo - Love Yourself (Justin Bieber) - I've always thought this song would make a good punk cover in my head, and here it is.

    I also like the Ramones cover of California Sun by Joe Jones, and later the Rivieras

    This one is one of my favorites.

    I would second the Cowboys Junkie cover.

    The Ramones also did a cover of Needles and Pins that I like. I think the original was by some obscure 60's group, but best known from a Del Shannon cover.

    I like this Jen Chapin - Backdirfts by Radiohead

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.
