Stumbling around Youtube looking at old Queen performances (It's what I do, sue me) I happened upon this gem of a recording by the London Symphony Orchestra of 'I Want It All' and this made me wonder about other covers of songs that are already awesome, but the way they're covered just amps up the awesomeness to a whole other level.

If you've got any of your own, please throw them on.

PS If someone can tell me how to embed video links, I'll edit the post; till then, all I can give is the link.

For some reason, I've always liked this cover of "Turning Japanese" by Incubus.

A friend made an album for me included 'Islands in the Stream', by Constantines and Feist.

You can't hear the whole thing here, but you can listen to a sample..

Very cool though.

Gotta love the Acoustic version of Snoop Dogg's Gin n Juice.

Many people say Phish does it, but its not, someone I cant think of does it.
