I prefer the cover of “Something to Believe In” by Pretenders to the original by The Ramones.

I’ll throw is another vote for the Save Ferris version of “Come on Eileen.”

New Found Glory did two cover CDs (From Your Screen to your Stereo). I love Glory of Love off the first cd (Peter Cetera) and The Promise off their second (When in Rome). I’m also a huge fan of Neutral Milk Hotel’s cover of I Love How You Love Me (The Paris Sisters).

99 Problems by Hugo so much better than Ice-T and Jay-Z’s versions. 

Forever by Boyce Avenue instead of Chris Brown

@legenwaitforitdary:  ah I know! He did a very small live show when I lived in LA that he announced via twitter (I wasn’t even on twitter but a friend of mind told me about it) and we crammed in the back of the club like sardines. He’s really talented!

Ya’ll should check out Richard Cheese. He does lounge singer style versions of popular songs, and they’re a hoot!

Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright, All Along the Watchtower by Bear McCreary, Hey Ya by Obadiah Parker, Romeo & Juliet by The Killers, and basically all covers done by Metallica (like Astronomy and Whiskey in the Jar). I also really love 311’s cover of Lovesong, but I’m such a big fan of The Cure that I can’t say it’s my favorite, so I’ll just say they’re tied. 🙂

@EffieTrinket:  I adore the STP and Rasputina versions of those songs!

A cheesier suggestion: Better Than Ezra’s version of “Use Me.” Love that song.
