    I like marylin manson's versions of tainted love and personal jesus
    Tainted Love is a great song. I hadn't realised that Personal Jesus was a cover too - who did the original?

    Marilyn Manson = zero musical talent

    All his flipping singles since the Beautiful People have been covers.

    He's absolutely crap. Johnny Cash does a much better cover of Personal Jesus.

    No wonder kids don't realise how **** artists like Marilyn Manson are.

    Personal Jesus is by Depeche Mode, one of the biggest bands of the late 80s and early 90s

    NOFX's cover of "LAst Caress" by the Misfits. I'd waver on saying that it's better than the original itself

    The Soft Cell version of Tainted Love was a better cover though

    personally, i prefer the original by Gloria Jones, but most people dont

    Good Covers of the top of my head:

    Elbow - Independant Woman
    Nina Gordon - Straight outta Compton
    Dsico - Seven Nation army

    there are loads of great ones though... usually not by famous people tbh, johnny cash apart

    The only way I can listen to Crazy In Love is the Snow Patrol version, it rocks! I think Zane Lowe does the rap

    Richard Cheese's lounge versions including Chop Suey are hilarious

    And Hounds of Love by the Futureheads too

    Michael Buble - Fever (it was a woman who did the original but im not quite sure)
    Has anyone heard "Top T and Danny C ft Jade - Magic"? Awful garage-fied cover of "Chained to You" by Savage Garden.
