THE WINNER.

Not really a cover, but the best Rammstein video ever (no, not that one!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpQvTWSx0G0

Superb.

(Sadly, all the Lego Rammstein videos seem to have been removed from YouTube.)

Oh my GOSH I cant believe we've not had this one already... unless we have. Mind merely saying its the 'Best cover Version' is unselling it massively. As I pointed out last time (or the time before whatever) this isn't just good its evidence of humankinds creativity being its greatest hope and the finest use of that there Internet EVER (and yes the capitals are important there.)

TIL Kate Bush did a delightfully silly reggae version of Rocket Man in 1991, complete with ukelele and Uilleann pipes

Wow never heard of this chap before and while he's giving himself some good cards by using obvious classic numbers and throwing on the vocal meladramatics DAMN those are good covers. Very fond of his Under Pressure / Let it Go smush up

Thanks for the introduction Rogue69.

He came to my attention via Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox who take modern songs and give them a classic twist
