Mandatory obvious pick.



Just about any cover of Bob Dylan or Tom Waits.

I probably heard this four or five times before I realized why I knew it. It may not be better than the original, but it says something that it made me forget the original classic.

Hate me if you want. I love this cover, and you'll never change my mind.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Fully agree. AFAIK, even Sting admitted that Eva's version was the better one.

Well apparently my musical tastes are very unaligned with BGGers.

Edit: found a better recording
