Courageous, Contentious Cover Songs

From Sonos, we get this wonderful look at cover songs.

The 4 compass points (NSEW) are marked by Sonic Bliss (N), Sacrilege (S), Most Faithful (E), Biggest Departure (W).

I would have added a few: Zebrahead’s amusing metal version Spice Girl’s Wannabe, I’d substitute K D Lang’s magisterial version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah (far superior to the overrated Jeff Buckley’s take IMO), Neil Nathan’s acoustic version of ELO’s Do Ya (from Californication 2 Soundtrack, Dawn Landes hidden track of Tom Petty’s I Won’t Back Down, and the unexpectedly beautiful version of the Cure’s Just Like Heaven, by Katie Melua.
