    Dredging this thread up because the XM spit out at me the forgotten and made-of-post-grunge-and-win cover of Baker Street by the Foo Fighters. Love the original, love the cover for different reasons.

    Had no idea. Great song. My personal favorite is Dwight Yoakam's version.

    I heard "Alone Again Or" by the Damned on XM and really liked it. I didn't realize it was a cover of a Love song at first. The original is better. Really great song.

    I, for one, object to Ring of Fire being called a chestnut, but maybe that's just me.

    Yoakam's version would be my call. For my money it's the best cover ever of an Elvis song.

    To E Street's list I'd add Springsteen's cover of "Quarter To Three" by Gary U.S. Bonds.

    I like "It's My Life" (Talk, Talk and No Doubt)

    both versions are great.

    The best cover of Little Queenie was done by REO Speedwagon, believe it or not.
