Kind of sad that it's the sixth result when you type in "bob dylan" on youtube though.

I can't remember if I like or hate it. Will listen...

...and done. I enjoyed it, but I don't find it to be spectacular or anything. All I know is, if I hear the Dixie Chicks' cover of it at work one more time, I'm going to go ballistic.

This version of "Landslide" from The Voice may be my absolute favorite, coming close to the original, TBH.

I have always liked that one. Corgan's voice really works with the fragility of the song, I think.

I really like that cover. I hate their version of Stay though. His voice does not work on that one.

Sorry, Leonard Cohen John Cale Jeff Buckley. kd owns this song now.

This was my favorite Pixies song for a long time, despite it not being a Pixies song:



I frickin' love this song:



My favorite version of this song (sorry, Neil):



My favorite "silly" cover (made even more amazing by the video:

That was lovely! Although kd lang has one of my favorite voices ever, so it's very hard to top her in my eyes.

Uh .... ears.
