Come on people... This song can put you in a different world all together... When the guitar starts playing... You can't stop but find yourself lost in the smoke of the SCORPIONS...

103 Shallow Sleep - Hyde

hyde's beautiful, tender voice, the memorable melody, and these lyrics...

In a shallow sleep I dreamt I was seeing you
Just how I remembered
Brimming with tenderness
And somewhere in the calm
A feeling that nothing had ever changed
Your presence close beside me till I wake

- excerpt from Shallow Sleep, lyrics and music by HYDE

119 The Sound Of Silence - Disturbed The Sound Of Silence - Disturbed

Utterly amazing performance, cover versions usually leave me cold but this is astounding. Hairs on The back of my neck stand to attention. So so good it rivals nothing else matters which is the biggest compliment I can give.

One of the best covers ever made

120 The Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix The Wind Cries Mary - Jimi Hendrix
