  • Any Dylan song done by anyone else is usually better than the original IMHO.
  • Not Fade Away - Buddy Holly/Rolling Stones
    It's All Over Now - BobbyWomack/ Rolling Stones
    All the Young Dudes - Bowie/Mott
    Always on my Mind - Elvis/Pet Shop Boys
    This Wheels on Fire - Dylan/Julie Driscoll
  • David Watts - Kinks/The Jam
  • Dear Prudence - Siouxsie & The Banshees

    Viva Las Vegas - Dead Kennedys
  • Wrecker - Megadeth/Ronnie Corbett
    Hate Worldwide - Slayer/Duncan Norvelle and the Grapes
    Fire in Cairo - The Cure/Jimmy Tarbuck

    All superb versions and really capture the mood and intonation of the originals. Ronnie Corbett is increasingly respected in the thrash metal scene. I was at Pathway Studios the other day with a mate in the business and Ronnie was there laying down some ferocious tracks. Edgy. Still wears those pringle sweaters though. Legend.

    The Goodies were real rock n' roll. Bill Oddie loved the birds. Still does in fairness.
