Bleh, the original is awesome, the Goldfinger version is really lame and generic.

Gotta agree with ya there on Faith No More's cover of Easy... darn fine cover of a very otherwise middle of the road Commodores song...

By a band called Pomplamoose. They actually do a lot of these, this being my other favorite:

^Nice I like that Pomplamoose song, too. I posted it in the Beyonce thread. The girl in the video looks really scared, though.

Perhaps a bit middle of the road, but certainly not BAD. Aside from Patton's voice which I love, I don't think the song is different enough to make it that much better than the original. I like both.

Ernie Halter's cover of "See You Again" Hannah Montana song... it sounds ridiculous but it's actually good.

Prime example rightthere in the above post... any Hanna Montana song is ripe for a cover that VASTLY improves on thwe original....

It's a really beautiful cover, Glen puts actual meaning and emotion into it.
