Which reminds me of this. Led Zep done in a reggae styleee, with Elvis-esque vocals. (Robert Plant thought it was better than the original. I agree).

Another version of Stairway to Heaven, this one by Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart with Jason Bonham. Apparently moved Robert Plant to tears (eyes too near his bladder as my late Uncle used to say). Must admit, excellent version.






Also, Gun covering Everyone's a winner. If ever a song was crying out for a rock version, this was it. It works as well !

In the spirit of the thread, that was a good cover, pretty much different to the original (but they had to include the same 'radio voices' as Joni did). But nowhere near as good as hers

The Bates version of M Jacksons "Billy Jean" takes some beating, better than the original

While we're talking Jacko, I quite like the Alien Ant Farm version of 'Billie Jean'.

Thanks everyone for responses. Some unusual stuff around. I try to have an open mind but reggae versions of Dark Side and Stairway is a step too far for me.


Just thought of another, Green Manalishi by Judas Priest.

The orchestration on one this is so good that I wonder whether it was by George Martin.

I know it's a bit back in this thread but how dare anyone compare Limp Biskits version of Behind Blue Eyes to the masterpiece that is The Who!!

I've even chosen it to be played at my funeral, The Who version that is.

Personally, I agree but there is a groundswell towards LB. Again, Wyatt on Planet Rock certainly supports the LB version although tends to play The Who.
