The Beatles -Across The Universe

Rufus Wainwright's version

Fiona Apple's

I actually like both of these covers, mainly because neither of them screwed with the song dynamics very much. I like Fiona's version better, Wainwright seems a little bored in his.

Paint it black: original

The Unseen:

****. they tried to do what ALOT of other bands have done before them, in their whiny annoying screamy style, and it's ****.

Judas Priest:

not exactly to my taste, and I most certainly like the original better. But of all the covers, this one is up there with some of the best that have actually been able to mould the song into one of their own. Definitely in keeping with their style, so even though I'm not a huge fan, I like it because they were able to make a good song without butchering the original by doing a strict copy.

if anyone can find a copy of duran duran's cover, post it up. it's amusing.
What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do -- especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.
