I've probably done this before, but a long while back, and I'm pretty sure not as part of the TT. So, here are ten (more) cover versions worthy of attention of some sort. When done well, I love the idea of the cover version. They sometimes help to open your eyes to a song you may not have paid attention to before, or not even liked at all. They may also show that the artist attempting the cover has more depth, or even range, than before.
Of course, the flipside can occur and show how limited an artist is. The covers album is often something I particularly hate - usually a cash-in, or just downright bloody lazy. Hence why I'm not including Tori Amos
' cover of Slayer
's Raining Blood
(which may be brave, but it's crap). In fact, that and the rest of 'Strange Little Girls
' - I know why she did the album (as I recall it was an attempt to switch a set of songs to a female point of view), it was just that the execution was terrible...And is inclusion of Johnny Cash
's cover of Hurt
