Maybe this is not new...

Anyway, which Queen song covered by another artist do you like most?

Somebody to love by G.Michael ? TSMGO by E.John?

I like Extreme's "Love of my life" & "Keep yourself alive" by Malmsteen !


Enjoy
Bye

"Somebody to love by G.Michael ? TSMGO by E.John?"

Not a cover, but a collaboration with B+R+J.

And the final track (I believe Radio Ga Ga) is imo the least worst song on the album.

The Elaine Paige Album is not very good, but her version of 'You Take my Breath Away' is stunning. The arrangement is excellent. and if you notice there is photo of paige standing with to a certain band.

Mind you it would have been great hearing her tacle stone cold crazy or something. HEEHEE

honestly i'm stuck between 3 different cover versions of Under Pressure...

1. Blood Brothers do a great hardcore version.

2. Crooked Fingers does a great acoustic version with some altered lyrics.

3. on the other hand there's the collaboration of Small Brown Bike / Casket Lottery who do an almost PERFECT traditional rendition...(I first heard this playing in a theater while waiting for a band to come on and I was so confused because it was extremely accurate, only different voices!)


i guess i'll go with #3, very accurate to original while still sounding unique and pays tribute to the original song

I like Nine Inch Nail's version of Get Down Make Love. Brilliant.

METALLICA's "Stone Cold Crazy" is awesome...
ANTHRAX version of "It's Late" isn't bad either...

EDIT: Heard it. Thanks, Rien! It's one of the more insane covers I've heard, but still good.

Get Down Make Love (Trent Reznor) is great, especially the psychiatrist dialogue. TR's re-production of Stone Cold Crazy is a gem too.

Somebody To Love live in the Tribute Concert. I think that was great. Elton's live was awful, Axel too...
Hmmmm, i feel strange about that but, though i didnt like much the WATC with Robbie i found the guitar solo extremely interesting. Besides, the video clip was amusing... well, that's what i think :P

Robbie Williams is dreadfull - FULL STOP - he totally ruined WATC - and JOHN should be proud not to have bene involved in that CRAP

I personlly think Metallica's version of Stone Cold Crazy if the best cover of a QUEEN song - I do however like Nuno's version of Get Down Mak Love - but maybe Im a little biased - NUNO is god
