    Love the instrumentals in this one. Is there a mandolin in there or is my ear deceiving me?

    Here's another one: Danny Boy- Roy Orbison
    Not sure if it's a mandolin. But that the instrumentals are beautiful cannot be disputed. Now, listening to "Danny Boy". Reaches right in and grabs the heart...

    I listened to this during last winter.

    Je reviendrai à Montréal · Rufus Wainwright

    English translation:

    I will return to Montreal
    In a big sea-blue Boeing
    I need to see the winter again
    And its northern lights

    I need this light
    Descending straight from Labrador
    And that makes blue roses, gold roses
    Snow on the winter

    In the silence of the winter
    I want to see this strange lake again
    Between the crystal and the glass
    Where angels come to land

    I will return to Montreal
    To listen to the wind of the sea
    Breaking like a big horse
    Against the white ramparts of the winter

    I want to see the long desert
    Of streets that don't end
    That go to the edge of the winter
    With no trace of footsteps

    I need to feel the cold
    Dying at the bottom of every stone
    And springing back again on the edges of roofs
    Like icicles of clear candy

    I will return to Montreal
    In a big sea-blue Boeing
    I will return to Montreal
    To marry the winter
    To marry the winter

    I had originally intended on posting a tea-cosy as my favourite cover,

    I also have a fondness for the piano cover used in the Lloyds bank ad.

    I need a doctor...

    < Love this refrain. Used to ski WhiteFace in Lake Placid. Many trips north to Montreal. Some great memories!

    Death - Painkiller. Rarely does a cover both succeed and do something entirely different with the material, but this version of Judas Priest's iconic track somehow manages to do both.

    Santa Esmeralda's cover of Nina Simone's "Don't Let me be Misunderstood" is the definition of a great cover, for me. It echoes the spirit of the original, with elements of The Animals' rendition, but via a completely different style, genre, tempo, and arrangement, elevating it to the status of a richly layered, sexy, Latin disco epic with chops for days.

    Arcade Fire's cut of Peter Gabriel's masterpiece "My Body is a Cage" captured me in a different way. It's much more regimented and aligns to a less dynamic rock formula, but the introduction of more ecclesiastical elements like the pipe organ and choir gives it a dramatic pomp that is as emotionally rich as it is deafening. They catalyze some of his subtle motifs into much more mountainous moments extremely well.

    Honorable mention:
    The Clash - I Fought the Law (the laid-back English attitude really adds some swagger to this)
    "When I am gone, it won't be long before I disturb you in the dark."
