Not a cover. Also, not particularly a good song. Probably the least exciting single of her career. However, the video, as you might guess, prominently features an 18 year old Britney Spears, which makes it a very worthwhile cultural artifact.

YES! I was hoping you'd come in here and notice that comment.

I know that. It was a deliberate disagreement sort of "What", hence the lack of a question mark.

Don't worry, Stereophonics, I still think you're good.

Perhaps they got a visit from a musket-totin' Utahn after that monstrosity that was their most recent album cover. Same reason Bloc Party haven't put out an album since.

I actually just realized that I looked over my actual favorite cover ever. I'm sure this is going to come as a shock though

There is a plethora of great Bob Dylan covers out there, with Hendrix's version of "Watchtower" and Robert Plant's version of "One More Cup of Coffee" at the top of my list.

If I had to choose one great cover, however, I would pick Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks," even if their version bears little resemblance to the original.

I've long had an allergic reaction when exposed to the Stereophonics' stale brand of pub rock. They're a pack of Marlboro away from Rod Stewart and Status Quo - although 'Local Boy in the Photograph' isn't entirely unpleasant.

Anyway, love Fiona Apple's cover of 'Sally's Song'.
&#x202a;Sally&#39;s Song - Fiona Apple&#x202c;&rlm; - YouTube

And Soft Cell's 'Tainted Love' never fails. Nice mix of northern soul and acid house.

They performed it on Sweet Relief: A Benefit for Victoria Williams. Also, Lou Reed, Michelle Shocked, The Waterboys, and Michael Penn all do some good covers on that album.


Happy Rhodes does a great cover of Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes" and Red Hot Chili Peppers version of Wonder's "Higher Ground".

Tori Amos has her own take of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and after you hear The Cardigans perform "Iron Man", the Black Sabbath version will never sound the same again.
