Oh, since I referred to the Cartman version of "Poker Face", let me also plug Molly Lewis' much more impressive version where she plays every instrument:

(And she's a mistie as well, and has performed with Bill and Kevin at some events.)

OK, other thoughts on the other songs.

The Man Who Sold the World cover is pretty great.  I'm not a big Cobain fan, but he does a damn fine job.  Still prefer the original though.

Didn't realize that TMBG song was a cover.  Very good one too.

Hallelujah is also good, but that's one of those songs I'm tired of hearing getting covered.  I remember when the original version showed up in  Watchmen, Cohen's reaction was "OK, can we have a moratorium on that song now?"

The Common People is a great cover.  Added that one very late in the game to my list since I forgot about it.

Never heard that Baby One More Time cover before, but it's pretty good.

Mad World is also on my list, but it was a bit lower than it would have been a few years ago from overuse.  Still, it's one of those great stripped down covers.

All Along the Watchtower was VERY high on my list.  A classic.  This one overcomes it's overuse, despite being used in every Vietnam establishing shot ever.

A brief playlet to play that song to...

2 guys are smoking weed in a tent.  The third guy, visibly panicked, enters:

Guy 3:  What are you doing?  Don't you know it's VIETNAM out there?
Guy 1: I don't believe in this war,  man!
Guy 2: I bet when I go home, people will spit on me.

You're welcome Oliver Stone.

Yeah, I knew either this or Mad World would get number 1.  It's pretty incredible.  Will post my list ASAP.

8.   Knowledge – The AquabatsOperation Ivy Turning it into a campfire song is a stroke of genius.  Yeah, it's funny, but I think it fits in real well with the themes of one's aimless 20's.
9.   Paper Planes – The ClienteleM.I.A. Holy fuck, they took a badass gangster song (a genre I usually don't like, but Paper Planes is super catchy) and made it sound like it's the Italian Job 2 (you bring in Michael Caine back and tell me you don't want to see it!)
10.   Hurt – Johnny Cash – Nine Inch Nails

Er, it's a cover when performed by Devo, yes.  Their recording of it came 8 years after Trent's.

And Joe? I'll see your Nickelback cover and give you a Who one.

I'm dumb a 2nd time.  I listed my original's first when I posted my list.  Read yours the same way.   My bad.  I thought I remembered something off the Pretty Hate Machine coming from some other band.  I think that it was Down In It coming from Skinny Puppy's Dig It.  The Devo version is still pretty cool though.

Also heard I shot the sherriff by Clapton this morning and felt shame for forgetting that one

* Glen Campbell covering Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman"
Webb wrote it but Campbell was the original artist, Webb is a phenomenal writer but others sing his songs first (MacArthur Park is one of his as well). I do like his version of The High Way Man though, actually I like both that and the Campbell original, not sure which I like more, Webb is more rueful and melancholy.
