    I LOVE this version of Kenny Rogers' The Gambler by Swedish sisters, First Aid Kit. What's your favourite cover song?

    I think it was @grumpydogwoman who first posted this... I loved it so much I now have two of their albums.

    This is a great one too...

    And I love Paul Simon's reaction to the same band performing "America". Ooft, goosebumps.

    All good suggestions, but this HAS to be the greatest cover of all time;

    I always thought Roxy Music's 'Jealous Guy' was the best.

    Too numerous to mention since discovering Postmodern Jukebox, but here's a few of what I consider to be their many highlights:

    I also love Korantemaa's acoustic cover of Sweater Weather - what a voice:

    It's definitely in my top five. I also reckon after Cash's cover of One, U2 might as well have packed up and gone home.

    It's been said that once Johnny Cash covered your song it was no longer yours. :)

    A cover of a Johnny Cash song which I prefer to the original.

    I was beaten to posting Tainted Love too - one of my favourites.

    But also this.
