I caught a glimpse of this movie recently where a bunch of school kids did just that, saracene. I have no idea what the film was, but it made me stop and watch because this group of 7 year olds were doing a dance number in tap shoes to "Oh so Quiet". BIZARRRRRE.

Zooropamanda, I saw that movie too and it's called "Happy Texas". That was a bizarre movie.
I really like Ryan Adam's "When The Stars Go Blue" but I love Bono and The Corrs cover of that song.

I don't know the name of the group, but I've heard a bit of the original. I think it's a song from the 60's or early 70's. Madonna has changed some the lyrics but the writing credits are - Madonna, William Orbit, Clive Muldoon,Dave Curtis and Christine Leach.

I've just found out the original version is by Curtiss & Maldoon and is called 'Sepheryn'.

How can you say the Lemonheads' version of Mrs. Robinson is better? They totally ruined that song!

Back to the topic at hand, I think Jane's Addiction's version of Sympathy for the Devil is better than the Stones'.

Truth is offensive.
I'm morally opposed to rape, and I would never rape anyone, but I think, ultimately, it's up to the rapist and no one else.

Haha taste is indeed a weird thing. I dunno George, when I hear the Lemonheads version, I just hear the whole meaning thing a little better. Its weird. I really love the song though in general.

And um, I dont believe anyone can do a Stones song, esp Sympathy, better than the Stones themselves

Fear Factory...of course featuring Gary Numan, who did it originally.


As for covers better than original:
U2's version of Dancing Barefoot
Manfred Mann's version of Springsteen's "For You"(Manfred made a living off the Boss, also covering Spirit in the Night, but he fell way short of Bruce on that one)
Van Halen's "You Really Got Me".
Pearl Jam's version of the Deadboys' "Sonic Reducer".
Hendrix' version of Watchtower is the quintessential cover song.
