The Johnny Cash 'In My Life' is utterly brilliant.

I hated the Slits' Heard It Through The Grapevine. Not that I was ever a huge Slits fan. So maybe that doesn't count.

It's one of the best cover versions ever recorded!

No, The Raincoats' "Lola" is one of the best cover versions ever recorded. The Slits' "Heard It Through The Grapevine" is a nice try.

The Beatles deserve a shout here. They improved "Twist And Shout", went toe-to-toe with Little Richard on "Long Tall Sally" and didn't disgrace themselves on "You Really Got A Hold On Me", but have you heard them doing "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby"? "Mr Moonlight"? "Besame Mucho"?

The Raincoats' Lola is good.

I nominate the Kingsmen's go at Mustang Sally. They sucked every last drop of soul out of that song.

And this shit. (oh, right, bands beyond criticism.)

The Pet Sop Boys' * complete immolation of that Willie Nelson song should definitely warrant a mention.

* Not that I think they're beyond criticism, in fact I think they're cobblers, but I realise I'm in a minority of one on this site.

AdC: maybe?

Furtho: OK. I've got some studio time and access to quality equipment around June, I'll put it in digital format, hang in there (hoping to get a radio DJ gig this summer!)

Uh uh. The Isley Brothers version remains definitive. The Beatles copped the arrangement and George Martin gave it a 'Live in Studio' sound, but it lacks the vocal shadings and the multi-voiced climax, not to mention the great trumpet break. No contest.

I'm with Wyatt on The Slits' "Grapevine". Horrible rubbish.
