    A Good Year for the Roses covered by Elvis Costello. Heart-raking.

    Pefer original. If you want to hear a really awful  cover, there's The Bachelors version.

    I'm of the opinion that music we love is pretty much purely associative. We love it because it reminds us of something. I love A&G's Sound of Silence because it reminds me of student days. I have no feeling for the cover by The Disturbed because it carries no emotive meaning for me. I have no people or places associated with it. It also makes me wonder why Metal bands choose names like Aborted Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, Septicflesh and The Disturbed. It makes me suppose they have been terribly abused as kids. That seems to be the implication.

    How about Linkin Parks cover of Adele's Rolling in the Deep?
