Weird/unusual/better cover versions

1. Blue Man Group with Venus Hum - I Feel Love

Even if you didn't like the Donna Summer original you should watch this.

That was... definitely something, Efros - thanks for sharing.

2. Norah Jones I think it's going to rain today (Randy Newman song)

<on edit> or this version by Nina Simone which is far more different from the original.

7. Deep Purple - River Deep, Mountain High

From The Book of Talesyn, Purple are not one of my favourite bands but I have always liked their version of this song.

8. Sisters of Mercy - Jolene

A Gothrock Dolly Parton cover. This is the first line up of the Sisters, before Wayne Hussey and well before Patricia Morrison-Vanian.

9. Turisas - Rasputin

Bonkers heavy metal. Yes, of course they're from Finland. And yes, it's a Boney M cover.

 
Stefan Linnemann

A Stephen Stills song, previously performed by Buffalo Springfield.

14. Novaspace - Beds are burning

Rave versions of 80s rock songs were a bit of a thing about fifteen years ago, and to be fair this one was better done than many in the genre. This was a big hit in Germany and Austria, and German TV then noticed that the singer wasn't ugly and hired her for a teen soap.

15. Richard Thompson - Ooops I did it again

Yes, a grey haired folkie (and a white Muslim) and a Britney Spears cover. I've a feeling that Jenny introduced me to this one a decade or so ago.

18. Siouxsie and the Banshees - Dear Prudence

Just about the only Beatles cover I prefer to the original.

19. Bobby McFerrin - Blackbird

Not keen on this one but it is original.
