Anything sung by Patrokles :lol:

 

Best or Worst? :nufc:

 

For those of us with the gift of hearing, there is only one real option.

 

To be fair, I look at the shit most people listen to and realise that my appeal is only ever going to be niche anyway. :lol: Apart from the fact that I don't like to be judged on the covers.

Head On by The Pixies or Wild Horses by The Sundays - in general I hate cover version on principle but those two are exceptions.

 

Worst - Tin Tin Out - Here's where the story ends or that Pet shop boys one where they tried to take the piss out of Where the streets have no name - both capital offences.

good call :lol: love the Sundays original (and Harriet despite being ginner!)

 

there's rarely a valid reason to cover a song unless it does make it sound different/ better.

 

Although I really liked Travis' version of 'hit me baby one more time'!
