Unlikely but surprisingly good cover versions

As it says in the title.

 

Have one of your favourite bands/artists covered a song that you wouldn't expect them to cover, but you liked it anyway?

 

Not just because its one of your favourites, but because its actually good. 

 

I'll start...

 

DMAs - Believe

 

I love his voice, and I think they'll continue to get bigger and better with each album they release. Big fan of them, but this cover took me by surprise, that they'd cover a pop song when they're around Liam Gallagher and the likes, but it works!

Wild Horses by Elvis Costello and Lucinda Williams. It isn't really an unexpected cover as he has form for covering country songs but it is good. It may also echo our own feelings towards our club. "I watched you suffer a dull aching pain, Now you've decided to show me the same".
"Wild horses couldn't drag me away"

I love Manics covers but i still cannot get over the fact they did this.

 

 

Love that version.

 

Was hoping they'd do it the other year at Tramlines when it was absolutely chucking it down. They announced they were going to play a cover but did Sweet Child O' mine instead.

Surprised no one has mentioned Johnny Cash covering Hurt by Nine Inch Nails.

 

Maybe it's too obvious, but who can deny it's unlikely......?

Mumford and Son do an excellent cover of Hurt.

Agreed, they also do great covers of Whole again and a crowded house song.

 

His voice is amazing
