    I can't get enough of Kate Bush's version of Sexual Healing :love: It's so uplifting and beautiful.

    What are some other random cover songs that are good? Or bad - whatever, I'm not fussy :cookie:

    Alestorm did a cover of Hangover by Taio Cruz, it's way better than the original in my opinion!

    Isn't it? Also I like how she took out all the potentially creeper lines "wake up wake up wake up wake up.." and replaced them with lovely violins

    Johnny Cash covering Hurt was quite unexpected. And much better than the original too! It's a bit of an obvious choice though. Kinda like picking Jimi Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower.

    What about (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction by Cat Power? The song has been covered to death (Otis Redding did a great cover too), but Cat Power's is one of the best and most unexpected in that she really re-worked it.

    Oooh, speaking of Marvin Gaye covers, (although this wasn't his song originally either) I forgot about The Slits cover of Heard it on the Grapevine! What a great song.
