Just putting this out there, I wish someone would do a heavy metal/alt rock cover of Simon & Garfunkle's The Sound of Silence.

And how did I forget U2's version of Dancing Barefoot?! I guess I keep forgetting that it's a cover.

I see.  The first couple I clicked on were people video taping their tv screens.  Guess I got in a hurry and didn't pay attention when I found one that wasn't.

My favourites from Tripe's list that didn't make it.

3   How Do - Sneaker Pimps (covering Magnat’s Willow’s Song)
4   The Highwayman - Jimmy Webb (covering Glen Campbell but which he wrote)
12   Who is he and what is he to you -  Meshell Ndegeocello (covering Bill Withers)
17   99 Problems - Hugo (covering Jay-Z)
19   Get The Party Started - Shirley Bassey (covering P!nk)
20   I Put A Spell On You - Nina Simone (covering Screamin’ Jay Hawkins)

In some of these, I think I like the original better (I've never really heard Bill Withers until recently, but he's great).  I might have to download How Do!

Oh yes in all but one of those I still like the original better (sorry Mr. Carter, you're successful but sort of pants) but I love all of the covers almost as much.

* 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.

Oh, dumb me - I was rushing through that list and screwed up. Try it again --- Johnny Cash covering Campbell's Jimmy Webb penned...

Cash was nearing the end, and his voice wasn't what it used to be. It's not pretty, and arguably it is the weakest vocalization of the tune, but he manages to convey so much feeling that I find it moving nonetheless.

As to the mention above of a metal version of Sounds of Silence. Never heard one, closest is the Dickies super fast punky version.
