    To anyone who stumbles across this thread, I'm partial to a cover song - those that offer a different take on a song, or just quirky ones, that you wouldn't expect.

    Here are some of the ones I've come across. Please feel free to share yours too. Thanks

    Come Together - Soundgarden

    99 Problems - Hugo

    Smells Like Teen Spirit - Patti Smith

    Some good ones here. I've also come across

    Pumped up Kicks - Dual Sessions

    It's a reggae version, which IMO works pretty well.

    Also, Nirvana's cover of The Man Who Sold The World

    Hallo Spaceboy - David Bowie.

    From the masterpiece album Outside in the mid 1990s.

    It is more than just a cover it is a joint effort with The Petshop Boys.

    Bowie takes lead vocals and adds his own edge to the music but the Petshop Boys take their part in it as well.

    There is a video for it as well, it was taken down for copyright reasons shortly after bowies death in the uk same as some of bowies other videos with his then record label at that time.

    But the video will be out there somewhere and i think its a good one.

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    Haven't heard of this collaboration. Will try and find it later as I've always enjoyed Bowie and a team up with The Petshop Boys sounds intriguing.

    If you like covers check out this channel on utube its feking great 100's of covers by indie bands well known and all the rest. To give background a band or solo artist comes in does a cover and an original. Its Aus radio and they swear or "cuss" the songs are done how they are meant to be done.

    100% agree. Love their version of 'Enter Sandman'. Pure funk, such a great take on a classic song IMO.

    That Triple J channel has some interesting covers. Arctic Monkeys covering Tame Impala and DMA's version of 'Believe' to mention a couple.  

    I've always had a soft spot for Methyl Ethyl's version of 'Cry Me a River' and The Belligerent's cover of 'Praise You' too.

    I found this on youtube. It is the official video in reverse. But the song is intact.
