    I'll start.
    M Ward, music guru, singer songwriter, half of She And Him, solo artist, bit of a nutter. It took me a few seconds to realise this was a cover of Bowie's record and not just another song with the same title, such is the diversity of the song. The lady miming to the song is Iwa Boman, a Swedish actress who studied at the Swedish National Academy of Mime and Acting. I love this song.

    I'm with Schindler here - I much prefer The Zutons' version.

    Whilst amazingly talented, I could never get on the Amy Winehouse bandwagon. I remember going to an Arctic Monkeys festival type gig at Old Trafford cricket ground in 2007 and I went to get a beer just before she came on - I do not regret missing her entire set.

    Regarding Cover Versions - I always loved Muse's version of Feeling Good.

    This song was written by David Freeman and Joseph Hughes and originally recorded by them as The Lover Speaks, a sort of new wave act that flirted with success for a while in the mid 80s. The song featured here peaked at No.58 in the UK in 86 but did a little better when Annie got hold of it in 1995.

    Johnny Cash - Hurt (2002 Cover from Nine Inch Nails song of the 90's)



    This song and the video is just awesome. Tbh every time I see it (and hear it) I have some water in the eyes, especially when you see Johnny played already with pain and when he closed the piano at the end, you know that it was the end for him, too (not long after this he died in 2003). Great version from the Man in Black!

    Trent Reznor once said that it was a great honour for him that Johnny covered his song!

    Motörhead - Sympathy for the Devil (2015)

    Another great cover (imo) is Motörheads 2015 version of the old Stones classic. It was published on their 22th (and last) studio album "Bad Magic". They wanted to tour with it again but sadly in December 2015 Lemmy Kilmister was diagnosed with cancer and died only a few days later on December 28th. I really like this version. Lemmy was already 70 when they recorded this and he still had it.
    R.I.P Lemmy
