I fucking love that though. That also kind of stung a bit when I found out it was a cover :\

It's almost the perfect westerberg song lyric wise..

:thumbsup:

That version of "Wonderwall" completely eclipses the original for me--I was never much of an Oasis fan anyway, but I think of it more as a Ryan Adams song than I do one of their tunes.

When he did that "Wasted Years" cover it immediately made me want to dig out my Iron Maiden records and see if they stand up to scrutiny (I don't think I've listened to any of them since I was 15). I still haven't gotten around to it.

Here's another one I dig:

I know nothing of PJ Harvey. However, that was pretty good. I also considered RATM's version of Maggie's Farm.

I haven't played that whole record in a long time, but I remember that being a good one.

I think Scott Weiland is pretty terrible (no matter what the context), but this cover of one of my all-time favorite Depeche Mode songs really got to me the first time I heard it back in 2001. Still tugs at the ol' heartstrings. I wouldn't place it above the original, but it hits me in a different way.

Rafa's gonna hate me... but Jack White's cover of Love Is Blindess is maybe my favorite cover of all time. Sorry, Raf. :peace:
