181 Power Of Love - Celine Dion (Jennifer Rush)

I've always heard "The Power Of Love" played on the radio before and I really didn't like the voice because the singer's voice was shrill. When I've learned that Celine sung this song too, I decided to know her version 'cos even if DJ's mistakenly name the singer of the song as Celine, I know that it wasn't her 'cos the voice wasn't beautiful. And when I heard a better version of this song, I immediately recognized Celine's voice. And I was right 'cos when i finally got her "The Colour Of My Love" album, I knew that her own version was the best one. The Power Of Love has also become a hit especially that Celine also sung a high note at one part of the song. Great lyrics. - RLAAMJR

Haven't heard Mariah Carey's version so can't really compare but Jennifer Rush was brilliant.

A british singer did a cover of this song for a advert recently and it's better than both of these

182 We Will Rock You - Five (Queen)

Lot of people like this song. I love this version.

183 Umbrella - All Time Low (Rihanna)

Punk goes Crunk, All time low are fantastic in adapting pop songs into my favourite form of music, Pop-Punk, you should also check out their version of Alejandro

184 Word Up! - Korn (Cameo)

Great song, Another brick in the wall is a great song by Korn. Best Pink Floyd Cover ever

This song was so annoying because of the way he sings and it's a very repetitive song

185 I Fought The Law - The Clash (Sonny Curtis and The Crickets)

Can never decide which one I prefer, this or the Dead Kennedys' version. Both great!

The Clash ruled

186 Valerie - Mark Ronson & Amy Winehouse (The Zutons)
187 I Wanna Hold Your Hand - T.V. Carpio (The Beatles)
188 It's Raining Men - Geri Halliwell (The Weather Girls)

191 Hair Of A Dog - Guns N' Roses (Nazareth)
192 Wild is the Wind - Cat Power (Nina Simone)
193 Without You - Harry Nilsson (Badfinger)

A great song and a *huge* improvement on the original.

194 Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright (Leonard Cohen)

Truly the greatest cover of this masterpiece.

195 Cats in the Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe (Harry Chapin)
196 I Love Rock 'n' Roll - Britney Spears (The Arrows)

Britney claims that "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" is one of her favoutite songs ever. I think she is right.

197 Somebody Put Something in My Drink - Children Of Bodom (The Ramones)
198 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Otis Redding (The Rolling Stones)
199 Talk Talk - Alice Cooper (The Music Machine)
200 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Aretha Franklin (Simon & Garfunkel)

No way this could ever come anywhere near Simon & Garfunkel's rendering. It was written by Paul Simon for goodness sake!
