Yeah, I surprisingly liked Marilyn Manson's "Tainted Love" too! But yes Jami, you probably are the only one who likes Brandy's cover of "I Do It For You"!! I'm deffo not a fan of that one, but I do like "Another Day In Paradise" although not sure if it quite matches the original.

Monica's version of "Right Here Waiting" with 112 was soooooo much better than Richard Marx's version.

Mariah's got some great covers - "Without You", "Endless Love" with Luther, "I'll Be There" with Trey Lorenz, "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life", "The Beautiful Ones", "Bringin' On The Heartbreak" and "I Still Believe".

Yeah, I liked Reel Big Fish's "Take On Me" much rockier = much better.

LOL. Eve 6 did a punk cover of "Waterfalls" which is entertaining, but nowhere near the original!!

Kelly Osbourne, as much as the girl can't sing, breathed life into the bor-ring "Papa Don't Preach" last year.

[scrolls down to look at other people's comments]

Aaliyah - Got To Give It Up, definitely
Shola Ama - You Might Need Somebody, liked this one
Melanie G - Word Up, eat this Cameo!
Ohhh yeah! Maxwell - This Woman's Work! (Thanks Jami)
DC3 - Emotion
Cruisin' - D'Angelo (thanks Rach!)

I actually liked 'Tainted Love' too, even though the video freaked me out. I can't believe I forgot all the songs off Urban Renewal, like:
'In The Air Tonite'- Lil. Kim feat. Phil Collins
'Can't Turn Back The Years'- Joe
'All Of My Life'- TQ

Yeah, I stupidly forgot the Marylin Manson one.

Papa Roach's cover of 'Gouge Away' was pretty good as well.
This post is highly unlikely to be serious. Please treat it accordingly. Unless it's music-related, in which case I'm damn well right.

Surprised no one has mentioned Postmodern Jukebox yet!
Or is this only about famous singers covering songs?
