The Contenders: Page 22

421 More Than This - 10,000 Maniacs (Bryan Ferry)
422 It's Only Love - Gary U.S. Bonds (The Beatles)
423 Lenny Kravitz - Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin)

I must say, I am not a fan musical covers nowadays, but this was a KICKASS performance. Even the remaining members of Zeppelin seemed to enjoy it.

424 Stand by Me - John Lennon (Ben E. King)
425 Mad World - Adam Lambert (Gary Jules)
426 Transylvania - Iced Earth (Iron Maiden)
427 Nobody's Fault - Testament (Aerosmith)
428 Unbelievable - Thousand Foot Krutch (EMF)
429 Angel - Jackie Evancho (Sarah McLachlan)
430 Long Tall Sally - The Beatles (Little Richard)

One of the BEST rock vocals of ALL TIME! A young Paul McCartney sings the "nearly impossible' on "Long Tall Sally"! - frank

431 Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - Elton John (The Beatles) Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - Elton John (The Beatles)

Beautiful and reverent version! Elton told Lennon "IF my version of Lucy goes to Number 1 you have to get up on stage with me to perform it with me". Lennon agreed... The track reached Number 1 and Lennon took the stage at Madison Square Garden with Elton! Lennon was SO nervous that he became "sick" before taking the stage! - frank

432 Mary Had a Little Lamb - Paul McCartney

Check this track out... Amazingly playful melody penned by Paul! Released after the BBC banned Paul's "Give Ireland Back To The Irish" (due to political reference) AND "Hi Hi Hi" (due to drug and sexual references)... Paul told reporters "let em TRY to ban this one". It's a beautiful track AND a GREAT BIG "F You" by Paul to the up-tight BBC! - frank

433 We Can Work It Out - Stevie Wonder (The Beatles) We Can Work It Out - Stevie Wonder (The Beatles)

I have absolutely no idea how this song can so far down on a list of best covers. I am really, completely baffled by this.

434 Nothing Else Matters - Bif Naked Nothing Else Matters - Bif Naked
435 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Sabaton (Metallica) For Whom the Bell Tolls - Sabaton (Metallica)

Any metalhead would choose this when they've lostened to it! It is heavier and have some really good vocals and background sounds with a choir and various! This should AT LEAST be at top 10!

436 Emotions - Mariah Carey (Ariana Grande)
437 Under My Thumb - Streetheart (Rolling Stones)
438 The Boxer - Mumford & Sons (Simon & Garfunkel)

Unless an songwriter purposely writes for another artist then surely the writer's own rendering has to be the best?

439 Mrs Robinson - The Lemonheads (Simon & Garfunkel)
440 Hear Comes the Night - Streetheart (Van Morrison)
