I can't agree with the Landslide comment. That's more blasphemous then the U2 one!

Agreed. Stevie was great on the original.

yeah, I'm not saying that the original was bad..I just like listening to the pumpkins version more. Maybe cos I'm a 90's whore

but I will defend my Buckley choice to the death. Cohen is one of the best artists of all time..and he's canadian! But, his Hallelujah isn't all that great. I love that Jeff saw so much potential in it

Jeff Buckley's 'Hallelujah' definitely. I don't even like Buckley's music very much, but that's a magnificent reading of what are some of the greatest lyrics ever put to paper. I love John Cale's version as well.

My mind keeps blanking out for any others although I'm sure there are more. The Hendrix I definitely agree with, though.

U2 - Helter Skelter

I really think so. Not to slag off the Beatles or anything.

I'm seriously blanking out as well but I agree whole-heartedly on Hendrix.

speaking of johnny cash - i'll take his version of 'personal jesus' any day!

Quiet Riot's version of 'cum on feel the noize' is probably the definitive version of that song, but i agree with mrbrau1 that the slade (original) version rules.

I agree. The Beatles' recording of it is neat, but I prefer how U2's sounds.

Of course, the Beatles were the master of the cover, but in particular, Twist And Shout sticks out in my mind.

Sorry, cannot agree with you here ...
Stevie Nicks was absolutely amazing with her original version of Landslide ...
It's one of her BEST songs ever ... ... No one can top it !!
