on the Bowie/Scott/Brel theme , Bowie's versions of Night Flites and My Death are both pretty good

I actually confess to liking the Flying Lizards version of 'Money' and Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood's version of 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling' tops the original in my opinion. The Walker Brothers did a brilliant 'Stay With Me Baby' and I enjoyed Agnetha Faltskog's (Agnetha from Abba) CD of '60s covers which she released a few years ago.

Rufus Wainwright's version of Across the Universe is beautiful. Recorded for the I Am Sam soundtrack, not seen the film though the video for this track is on youtube somewhere.

Slaid Cleaves - Flowered Dresses, much better than the original by that lass whose name I can't remember.

saw him play it the other night, probably the highlight of the set. Written by Karen Poston but I havent heard her version.

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

Ditto for his version of Posten's 'Lydia' too. Flowered Dresses is from a whole album of covers called 'Unsung'. I don't think there's a bad track on it. If anybody has got the knack of taking somebody elses tune and making it their own it's Slaid.

Townes Van Zandt - Dead Flowers

Far, far superior to the original.

Johnny Cash - Hurt

Johnny Cash - Father and Son (with Fiona Apple)

Star Me Kitten - with the William Burroughs vocals. Absolutely nothing against Michael Stipe, its just Burroughs croaky voice adds something special to it.

Just off the top of my head those three, its difficult cause I so often prefer the original version of a song.

Will think of more though.

Tony Christie's 'Made in Sheffield' springs to mind!I think every track on that album is a great cover (although I haven't heard all of the original versions).I especially love 'Born to Cry'.
