Basically just what it says on the tin.

What is the best/favourite cover songs that you have ever heard.

Was listening to Damien Dempsey's cover of a Rainy Night in Soho by The Pogues the other day and had forgot how well he'd covered it. To my mind its one of the greatest love songs ever written and always see it as such a shame that Shane mac Gowan has went the way he has.

My personal favourite is Was (Not Was) covering Papa was a rolling stone. Awesome.

Apparently there was a poll done recently by NME but I cant remember what came top.

Just had a watch of that on youtube live. Liked it a lot!

Just remembered my favourite cover of a Springsteen song too.

Rolling Stones cover of Robert Johnson's "Love in Vain"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCu7Qq1J-Jw

For me personally the best thing the Stones ever did was this cover and Mick Taylor was at his supreme best.

Boss, I LOVE Damo!!! He also does a cracking version of Sunday Bloody Sunday (U2) and his version of O Holy Night is baaayooootiful!

As for covers, there's some ace suggestions on this thread from a while back Smile

Hero, they're 3 of the most played songs on my ipod. Don't mind Cash's cover of "One love" either.

Cari, I've only started listening to Dempsey recently. Fire in the Glen is a great song and his versions of The Foggy Dew and Rocky Road to Dublin are great too!

Massai
Killburn Stroll
NYC Paddy
Spraypaint Backalley
Bad Time Garda
It's All Good
Not On Your Own Tonight
Canadian Geese
Party On

Add Rolf's version of Stairway to Heaven and you have the perfect list Wink

More seriously, I'd go with those three plus Joe Cocker's version of A Little Help from my Friends.

I've never heard this version but I will have a listen. Rainy Night in Soho is in my top 5 songs easily.

I really like Florence and the Machine's cover of The Source and Candi Staton's You Got the Love.

Oddly enough considering he's someone who's work is often covered by others I've always really liked Dylan's version of The Boxer.
