Your favorite cover at the moment?

2004-02-06 02:34:29 GMT

Just wanted to know what's your favorite cover version right now?

I'll start off with 4:

- Firewater - Paint it Black (or. Rolling Stones - Paint It Black ). Saw these guys in concert last week -> amazing!

- Junior Jazz - Uptown Top Ranking (or. Althea & Donna - Uptown Top Ranking ). This is actually a 15 year old Belgian girl covering this reggae classic, but I like the producing and her chilled voice a lot!

- Youngblood Brass Band - Pastime Paradise (or. Stevie Wonder - Pastime Paradise ). Although it's not very recent, this 100% acoustic and authentic US brass band does a great uptempo hiphop version of the Stevie Wonder classic. Their concerts are also highly recommended btw..

- The White Stripes - I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself (or. Tommy Hunt - I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself ). Just mentioning this one before everyone else does ;-)


The first 3 aren't very well-known covers, but throw in whatever you like!
