In no particular order, as I am both lazy and indecisive.
  1. I Can't Help Falling in Love with You - Lick the Tins covering Elvis
    We kissed and then we walked back up the aisle to this one.
  2. Hazy Shade of Winter - The Bangles covering Simon & Garfunkel
    Pretty universally agreed as being a massive improvement over the original, right?
  3. Chiquitita - Sinead O'Connor covering ABBA
    Sinead tackles my childhood favorite. My head subsequently explodes.
  4. Dear Prudence - Siouxsie and the Banshees covering The Beatles
    This is the kick in the ass the original needs.
  5. In Your Eyes - Lori McKenna covering Peter Gabriel
    That's some moody shit right there.
  6. Wave of Mutilation - Kristen Hersh covering the Pixies
    Can you even improve on the Pixies? No, but if you're Kristen Hersh you can do them justice.
  7. These Days - 10,000 Maniacs covering Jackson Browne
    Everything sounds better when sung by someone NOT accused of domestic violence.
  8. Boys of Summer - KT Tunstall covering Don Henley
    I mean, I don't even like the original.
  9. Crazy - Shawn Colvin covering Gnarls Barkley
    Given Colvin's openness about her depression and struggles with mental illness, this is somehow both tongue-in-cheek and chilling.
  10. In the Sun - Chris Martin & Michael Stipe covering Joseph Arthur
  11. You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby - Kirsty MacColl covering The Smiths
    Oh, Kirsty. I still miss you.
  12. Sweet Jane - Cowboy Junkies covering Lou Reed
    Is this college? Am I high? Sweet.
