Cover versions of iconic tunes that should NEVER, under ANY circumstances have been attempted let alone seen the light of day.

This is verging on blasphemy. What the HELL was he trying to do????

Now I know Harry Nilsson didn't do the original of Without You but his must be the definitive version and one of the great vocal performances.
Then there's this. If you rigged a up dynamo in Nilsson's coffin you could power Belgium.
Fluffy bunny dog whistle voiced bint Mariah 'sugar flavoured snot' Carey's take on it leaves me speechless. Syrupy, nauseating, with the added irritation of her using 15 notes where one will do. FOR GOD'S SAKE JUST WHY CAN'T YOU JUST CHOOSE ONE BLOODY NOTE, STICK WITH IT AND STOP YOUR BLOODY WARBLING YOU STUPID TART??! Alternatively, you've made enough money so just STOP altogether. Carey you're a disgrace. You make me want to stamp on kittens*.

Sick buckets at the ready...

I'm angry now.

*No kittens were stamped on during this rant.

Stairway to heaven


I loved the Rolf Harris Version!

Someone felt the need to cover the Doobie Brothers.

Yes, Rolf can get away with anything.

Just listened to the original Dobbie Brothers version - wow!

Mariah Carey meet Tori Amos - you are the Queens of Cover Versions. Say no more Sir Sid - because you really have said it all. :o

I'm gonna give this A- for a lateral take on old denim rockers' Pictures of Matchstick Men:

It even has a slinky in the video Charlie!:

This is just... just... it's indescribably awful. I'm barely containing my disgust and finding it increasingly difficult to type anything without resorting to language that would make John Terry blush.

Banging my head on the keyboard might make it better...

Sid this is truly awful.
Not what I need on a Saturday morning when I'm feeling a little delicate.
I feel the need to share this now and apologise for any trauma caused.

CitizenM, I see your appalling FYC cover and I raise you:

Have these people NO SHAME? :angry: :angry: :angry:

Actually I quite like that version Sid but nothing compares to the Buzzcocks - they knew how to do a love song.

Ok, you'll have to really scrape the barrel to beat this - it's hammer time with Spock:
