Because sometimes the first draft is not enough, I give you my Exceptional Covers Playlist.
1. Running up that hill - Placebo (Kate Bush)
2. When you were young - The Noisettes (The Killers)
3. Keep the car running - Foo Fighters (Arcade Fire)
4. Not over yet - The Klaxons (Grace)
5. Love's not a competition - Paramore (Kaiser Chiefs)
6. Best of You - Stereophonics (Foo Fighters)

8. Hurt - Johnny Cash (Nine Inch Nails)
9. Against All Odds - Postal Service (Phil Collins)
10. You know I'm no good - Arctic Monkeys (Amy Winehouse)
It can either go brilliantly well or spectacularily wrong but sometimes, just sometimes, a cover can surpass an original in such a way that you forget it had ever been sung before.
