Pete Townshend's cover of Save it for Later

Nowhere near as good as the basically perfect original, but still good nonetheless

Thanks for sharing that... Pete obviously has that distinct style of their own...

How about this live cover right here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjlKjZy2Qi8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I cannot stop listening to this... Cheap Trick is so amazing and them covering John Lennon's "Cold Turkey" here even elevated their "amazing status" even further! So incredible here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm7KUQ_uXK0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

To go back to the two versions of 'Mad World':

I notice that the Tears for Fears original has nowhere near as many YT views.

I prefer the TFF version (Gary Jules voice is annoying). But it looks like Gary Jules was the bigger hit in more territories. It was number one in the UK and Canada for instance. And in the Billboard top 30.

Whereas the Tears for Fears version did not chart in the USA.

Travis' cover of 'river' by Joni Mitchell is really really good, B-Side on turn single if I remember correctly

It's a pretty version & it's nice to hear someone hit the high notes when singing it.
