it would also be nice if people who didn't like the smiths wouldn't bother posting in the thread.

Natalie Merchant does a pretty good cover of Every Day Is Like Sunday, imo.

Oh, I forgot about that one. ::nods::

Who wouldn't like to hear Bono do "Jack the Ripper"?

oooh you're such a rebel!

I haven't heard a lot of the covers you guys are mentioning. I'll have to check some of them out, especially that Jeff Buckley one.

Also, I totally agree with popmofo about that Pete Yorn cover. I like Pete, but that version of Panic was just wrong.

So all in all, I have nothing substantive to add to this thread. Excellent.

Alright, I'll check out all those covers. I've heard a lot about Pete Yorn and Panic is one of my favourite Smiths songs, so...

Another not so great one: Chris Martin & Noel Gallagher - Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before

A bit blah, if you ask me.

There was actually a Smiths cover album.

I've never heard it, but I had a friend who used to be excessively into the Smiths, and she told me about it. I cant remember who's on it, I'll have to look it up for you all!


Found it:

The Smiths is Dead

The Boo Radleys : The Queen Is Dead - The High Llamas : Frankly Mr. Shankly - The Trash Can Sinatras : I Know It's Over - Billy Bragg : Never Had No One Ever - The Frank & Walters : Cemetary Gates - Placebo : Big Mouth Strikes Again - Bis : The Boy With A Thorn In His Side - Therapy? : Vicar In A Tutu - The Divine Comedy : There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - Supergrass : Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others
