    Your favourite/worst musical cover

    I just heard a particularly amazing cover song, Linkin Parks's Numb covered by the British Beyonce Jamelia. It is amazing. Think Aretha Franklin meets Bruce Springsteen. I know!

    So anyway. Some covers are dreadful. Tina Turner doing Massive Attack's Unfinished Sympathy is unbearable. Anyway. What are your favourite and worst covers? Follow the guidlines below

    I think Chicago has the best CD Cover. The pictures they included are amazing. Plus, they have a picture of Joel Grey as Amos, and he's one of my favorite actors. In a role played by another of my favorite actors, John C. Reily. Oh, wait, that isn't what you meant when you said "musical covers?" Why do I always misinterpret things?

    When you wish upon a star- covered by Christina Aguilera...

    One of the most touching songs in the Disney arsenal turned into bubble gum pop.

    For the 07-17th event, Snoop Dogg will be giving Walt's Opening Day speech. Fo Shizzle...

    Best:
    Alien Ant Farm covering Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal"
    Beatles covering "Act Naturally" (I could look up the original artist, but the case is so far away...)

    Worst:
    Fred Durst covering the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes" (and then claiming he wrote the song? That fooled no one, least of all the interviewer)


    Zissou, you said any Beatles cover, does that include Aerosmith and "Come Together?"
    The King is back and he's ready to kick some tail. Do not mess with a mouse in black.

    G n' R doing "live and let die" was pretty bad.

    Great was Social Distortion doing "under my thumb"
