321 You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling - The Four Tops (Righteous Brothers)
322 Oops...I Did It Again - Children Of Bodom (Britney Spears)

Best cover ever because it turned one of the worst songs ever made into something decent, well-composed and not just pop crap.

Yupp... that's called a 'cover' - hereisHorizon

323 Walk - Avenged Sevenfold (Pantera)

Matt is the only vocalist of a new metal/rock band that still has gritty vocal of the 80's heavy metal

A7x did the best cover song... did you ever listen to Walk...? this should be in the top 5... - skt

13th? are you kidding me?! should be in the top 5 at least! A7X did a great job here!

This is an epic cover

324 Something - Shirley Bassey (The Beatles)

Shirley Bassey's cover of George Harrison's Perfect Ballad actually has sold more copies than the original Beatles release >>> which is 'Something' in itself! Harrison's song was the perfect vehicle for Bassey's emotionally charged and powerful range /register vocal abilities. See Shirley Bassey sing this song, live, on YouTube)

325 Gringo en Mexico - Maria Muldaur (Wendy Waldman)
326 Street Fighting Man - Rage Against the Machine (Rolling Stones)
327 Come Together - Michael Jackson (The Beatles)

Great Cover, everybody judges this one because of the artist and because people thought he crossed the line by being a good business man instead of beatles fan. Still he is a great beatles fan and nailed this one making it fresh and interesting for the first time it has been covered. He should had left it in Moonwalker though. Putting it on the HIStory album was unnecessary. It doesn't fit the sound of the album at all.

I kinda liked it when the Beatles sang it. But it's a really cool song ya know. Oh and just one more thing my comments are always at the last on the list. Why is that?

This song was an amazing song for Michael. He made an awesome video for this and you just can't take your eyes off him... xo - love4mjj

Michael stays true to the original version yet incorporates his own personal touch. An awesome cover ❤️. - FlakyCuddles43
