Anyone want to share their favourite cover songs?

At the moment, I'm really loving Boyce Avenue's cover of Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye.

One of my favourite bands is a cover band. They're called Gregorian and they are from Germany. As you might have guessed from their name, they take contemporary rock songs and put a Gregorian Chant sound to them. They've covered just about everyone. Except maybe Lady Gaga... :lol: (Would love them to cover Bad Romance, though!) Here are some of my favourites:

Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day




^^Can't you just imagine these guys doing covers of Disney songs? I would love it if they did! (OK, they did do Can You Feel the Love Tonight)



EDIT: Forgot to mention one! This is Stephin Merritt, my favourite singer in the whole entire world, covering Peter Gabriel.

Ironically, Peter Gabriel did a cover of one of Stephin's songs around the same time. But that cover was rubbish :P

I love Thunder's cover of In a Broken Dream, its so powerfull and Danny Bowes voice is amazing! I also like Metallica's cover of Turn The Page, I think its clever how they put some of the saxophone bits into guitar and I just love the song :lol: . I might put up links later.

Lostprophets, one of my favorite bands, have done a few good covers. They've done Cry Me A River, Sweet Dreams My LA Ex and probably a few more. Also, Modestep, another favorite, have covered Paradise. I love Modestep's Paradise cover. It's absolutley gorgeous, and worth listening to.
