These posts at the Volokh Conspiracy and Boing Boing have reminded me how much I love cover songs. Weird covers by no name bands, famous people covering old hits, sound-alikes, reinterpretations: there's room for them all in my heart. I have a special iTunes playlist of them. Some favorites:

Momma Told Me Not to Come - Stereophonics & Tom Jones
Get Down Make Love - Nine Inch Nails
You Don't Own Me - Rasputina
Video Killed the Radio Star - Presidents of the United States of America
Smells Like Teen Spirit - Tori Amos
Roxanne - Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
Hit Me Baby One More Time - Travis
House of the Rising Sun - Sinead O'Connor
Everybody Hurts - The Corrs
When Doves Cry - Ani DiFranco
Come On Eileen - Save Ferris
