I like that Gourds cover, but I believe "Train in Vain" is an original, unless I'm missing something.

*Hits self* Wrong song. There. That's definitely a cover.

How can you not like that John Mayer cover? Sure, his original stuff isn't very good, but that's a great cover.

Besides that piano solo version (track 1) of Exit Music (For A Film)...I'm sorry, but I just can't take Radiohead covers. I think it's definitely the absence of Thom Yorke's voice. I went to see Ben Folds recently, and the opening act was Duncan Sheik. He covered Fake Plastic Trees, the holiest of all Radiohead songs, and quite frankly, killed it. To make it worse, they played The Bends during the set change, which allowed everyone to compare and contrast...not a smart move.

what about the cardigans' cover of "ironman"? that's kind of on the weird side, but the song is definitely on the good side!
