Harry Nilsson made Badfinger's lousy 'Without You' into a gem.

I actually like both versions, but Nilsson wins with his performance and Richard Perry's arrangement.

Sadly, Mariah Carry's version that many "Idol" style singers go for made matters very bad for those who like both the original and Nilsson's version like myself where I have to say to friends that once upon a time it was a very good song.

Richard Cheese - Down With The Sickness

I COMPLETELY AGREE. And props to whoever posted Nookie/Break Stuff also. I'm quite confident that Richard Cheese can take any bad song and make it good. Hilarious stuff.

On another note, anyone heard of The BossHoss? They did ridiculous covers of "Word Up" and Nelly's "Hot in Herre."

Probably. I hear it helps vocalists with their throats. Whatever throats are.
