Cover tunes

What's your fave cover version of a pop song? Lots of choices here. I came across this gem in my library by Esteban "Steve" Jordan: You've lost that Loving Feeling. Steve Jordan is known as the "Jimi Hendrix of the button accordion", in part because he feeds his custom Corona II through an echoplex. He also does a very nice, all Spanish version of Yakity Yak, that old Coasters tune.

I like Beck and Suri covering a song from Grease you can hear it here...


And Superstar by The Carpenters covered by Sonic Youth.

there are tons of covers I love. Recently we've been listeing to Vouvelle Vogue they cover a lot of 90's songs. And my brother in law collects covers.
