Just a bit of fun and I will start it off with a controversial opinion

Under the Bridge by All Saints is much better than the Chillis

Hoax Very Happy

All along the watchtower by old Jimbo. For once (for Dylan...), the original is actually pretty good, but Hendrix just takes it up several notches, IMHO Smile

The Angels take on "Once bitten, twice shy" is pretty damn good... and they do "We've got to get out of this place" very well; Doc Neeson imbues a real sense of menace into them...

Brother Canes' "God rest ye Merry gentlemen"??

Wet Wet Wet doing "with a little help from my friends" is better than the Beatles original.

But then again anyone doing any Ringo song has a fair chance of improving upon it

Peter Green's (Bluesbreakers) "The Stumble" is better than Freddy King's

Clapton's (Bluesbreakers) "Hideaway" is better than Freddy King's

From the other end of the spectrum.

Never heard a better version of 'Red House' than the original.
