    Let's here them.

    For me, even though at 35 I would be considered a bit too young for it.

    Only you - The flying Pickets.

    Dunno why, but I kinda dig the A cappella twist.

    Cyndi Lauper - I drove all night although the original Roy Orbison was great as well.

    You can’t name a cracking tune, then not provide a link :40: , from back in the day I was 16 Christ am getting old :(






    I can mind as a young lad discovering this was a cover and that lead me to paying more attention to Elvis.
    ps same applies for you -






    My nomination would be the cover version of Suspicious Minds that the FYC done, it’s superb IMO, just ignore the video :giggle1:

    You're right. I somehow thought Johny Cash version was the earliest (should've post it other way round as it's * good cover)

    Slightly controversial with that shout. The original is phenomenal.

    Some others I thought about
    The Damned-Eloise
    Captain Sensible - Happy Talk, his version of a famous musical number rather than a cover.
    Aztec Camera-Jump
    Motley Crue-like a virgin

    Any song by Tragedy

    Yeah probably is...Im a big James fan so might be slightly bias......I like the original but i do prefer this version myself.

    What i think is an absolute stunning song though is Love and Hate.

    I first heard that song in Animal Kingdom series and thought it was one of the best songs i heard in years from this guy.
