    Best cover versions ever??

    G'z up, who's down for this parlour game?

    All genres of music are welcome and the covers don't necessarily need to be better than the originals, just dope in their own right.

    Only two rules here:

    1. The song must exist on wax. Partially to appease the diggers and partially to stop anyone posting videos of indie lasses doing ukulele covers of Rap songs.

    2. You must list the song you post to avoid the thread being a graveyard of dead YouTube embeds in the future.

    Fair? Let's play!

    Erma Franklin’s cover of ‘Light My Fire’ is my favourite version



    A killer edit from Ryuhel The Man dropped on wax on a limited Japanese 45 a few months ago. Well worth picking up if you find one for a decent price.

    What’s a song that never gets old and every cover is usually good?

    Sunny is battered but that songs kind of annoying.

    I’m going Hurt So Bad

    Nancy Holloway is the one.


    Mystic Moods Easy version


    Little Anthony OG is no slouch


    Not even these dorks the Lettermen can fuck it up


    Nancy Wilson, Willie Hutch, Delfonics and loads more all do decent versions.

    Nice one, lads. Some great selections, including some I ain't heard before.

    I'm an Isaac Hayes guy as far as Walk On By goes:
