I believe a cover should take a great song, turn it on it's head, smack the everloving beauty out of it and twist it's nipples til it screams uncle.

Idiotec by Amanda Palmer

And yet another example: Original

Cover 1:


Cover 2:

Also, thank you Criminal Minds for solidifying my horror of something getting into my eyes. Nice.

Neat. I really like the Cat Power, Mandy Moore and Jamie Cullum ones. 30StM is an interesting take on Gaga. And Paramore sounds really good acoustic. I wish they'd do more stuff like that. For some reason, IMO, it highlights their musicality instead of that rock!band! persona that they have out there.
