My vote goes for... Litte Richard's "Tutti Frutti".

'Jailhouse Rock' comes in a close second place.

Wish they had done more, I like most. They could make bad songs sound great (this goes for some of their own songs) and great songs even better. Perhaps I like Imagine best, although or because it is very simple.

I had a good recording of the Immigrant Song, always enjoyed that. 1986 in Manheim I think, i could be wrong.

I also liked Since You've Been Gone which the Brain May Band played (but coz Cozy was on drums I don't know whether that should count).

Love Jailhouse Rock and Tutti Frutti and Imagine's alright.
But they didn't cover a lot did they? only the rock 'n roll medly's.
So I'll go for: Jailhouse Rock


Ever since I was a young boy,

I've played the silver ball.

From SoHo down to Brighton,

I must have played them all.

That deaf, dumb and blind kid,

sure plays a mean pinball

I will second 'Tutti Frutti' (even a non-Queen friend of mine thinks it's a great rendition) and 'Hello Mary Lou'.

BTW, was that Freddie on the "aaaaaaaah aah" part?
I keep thinking it's Roger.


It was Roger and i think it was made purely for fun in the best Queen tradition!


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.

She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

The best Queen COVER ever... A Night At The Opera!
(Although Sheer Heart Attack and Day At The Races Were good too).

The worst Queen COVERS? The Miracle, and Jazz perhaps?
