    Post some of your favorite songs and someone who did a cover of the song. Boston did an awesome cover of this tune, but I like Hybrid Ice:music:

    Okie, Paul McCartney's "Yesterday" is the most covered song in popular music history, with over three thousand different versions.

    I am not a Beatles fan at all, so I think the group "Pain" did a better job on the cover.

    I Love both version of this. The original from Pink Floyd, and the cover by Nightwish.

    Johnny Cash is one of my all time favorites and infinitely higher on my list than NIN, but for some reason, I don't care much for his version of that song. I know it's weird, most people like it better. I just prefer the NIN version.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCv-T1plBBI"]Spencer Davis Group - I'm A Man - 1967 45rpm - YouTube[/ame]

    Cover -

    Chicago - "I'm A Man"

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUQg7nHMZ8o"]Chicago - I'm a Man - YouTube[/ame]

    Downtown Train.

    Tom Waits wrote it and does it best. Very unique voice.

    [ame]http://youtu.be/JuSZEBuDUC4[/ame]

    Rod Stewart made it famous...and slaughtered it...

    [ame]http://youtu.be/YHqB3v5rNCc[/ame]

    Bob Seger's version
