  1. good list.

    i really like natalie merchant – i mean lots. it doesn’t quite work for me – was hoping it would though.

    here’s the cover that does work for me though.

    alanis morissette can be creepy good.

    gary jules reminds me of michael stipe – maybe the style more than the voice?

    nearly everything from johnny cash is wow – cover or not.

  2. that’s a good one too – but not too far gone from the patti smith original. the ones linked above are kinda crazy takes on the originals.

    this is my fave cash song:

  3. have you seen ‘book of life’? lots of great songs in there, including this radiohead cover:

  4. nice… both i hadn’t come across before.
