Oops I did it again

One of my favourite folders in my [computer] music file is the one labelled “Cover Versions”
I have quite a collection, I love it when an artist brings a whole new dimension to a song by playing their interpretation of it. Among my favourites are:
Natalie Merchant: I hope that I don’t fall in love with you
Eva cassidy: Fields of Gold
Pete Yorn: Dancing in the Dark
Barenaked Ladies: Lovers in a dangerous time
Lyle Lovett: Stand by your man
(and for sheer LOL quality …. Rolf Harris: Stairway to Heaven

A great recent discovery though was the brilliant Richard Thompson singing ‘Oops I did it again‘ from his “1000 years of popular music” live album (available here)
Any other recommendations for blisteringly original ‘covers’ ……..
