I actually don't think the original is bad, but this version feels way more roots reggae. The horn section fills it out and the busy guitar work is really cool. Definitely on a whole different level than the original.



The Dirty Heads totally nail this one, the tone and vibe totally change.

The Reel Big Fish version of Take On Me beats the hell out of the original.

I've always just loved Bonnie Raitt's version of this song by the great Joni Mitchell

Peter Gabriel's cover of "The Book of Love" is just so much more heartrending than the original by Magnetic Fields. A truly beautiful song.

I can't believe how these guys actually managed to turn "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback into a good song.

I prefer Nico's cover of Jackson Browne's These Days.
