Pearl Jam do covers really well.

21212121212121212121212 that's a really good cover of Romeo & Juliet, my favourite Dire Straits song, very true to the original, he even tries to inflect a bit of Knopfler in his vocals.

Cash's cover of Hurt goes without saying.

I love the 2's cover of Everlasting Love, and I also like RHCP's take on If You Want Me To Stay.

Cash's cover of "Hurt" and "One" both are amazing.


Jive, I've only heard like one song by Stereophonics, would you recommend listening to more?

Not counting some of the songs already listed:

"Mr. Tambourine Man" as done by The Byrds.

I'm kind of fond of George Michael's version of "Don't Let the Sun go Down on Me", even if it's not quite as good as the original.

"Respect" by Aretha, of course.

I like Nirvana's version of "The Man who Sold the World".

"You Really Got me" by Van Halen.

"Proud Mary" by Tina Turner (and Ike, I think. Fucking Ike)

To go alone with your last one, here's one of the strangest covers I've ever heard:

‪Erasure - River Deep-Mountain High‬‏ - YouTube

I am not sure if I should even listen to that....hearing Celene Dion's version is probably enough. What a fantastic song, though, at least as sung by Tina.

Tina didn't take no shit off nobody, FYI.

It's...strange. I like it in a weird wtf way.

In retrospect, I find Private Dancer to be an incredibly depressing album. Mostly "What's Love Got To Do With It". I'm like, Tina, did it really get that bad for you? Please don't feel so sad .

Hmm, not sure. They didn't age so well. But give Performance & Cocktails a shot. It was on perpetual repeat in my car the year it came out

I've heard that all of Stereophonics' new material is crappity crap crap, but the first couple of records interest me. Never heard one note of their music.

How is Dakota not the one Stereophonics song you've heard? That was everywhere.

They're a good band and very much worth your time. Haven't heard their last two efforts however.
