I'm a fan of Chris Cornell, less a fan of Prince (or whatever he's called these days). His cover of Sinead's O'Connor's cover of Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U.

While the name change seemed pretty weird/artsy Prince actualy did it to get out of a contract with a record company …just business

Okay, so debatable whether it's "better than the original", but it sure looks like a lot of fun …

Bono wrote a letter to Captain Beefheart asking if he would be interested in writing/recording together. The Captain sent a terse, handwritten reply: “Dear Bongo, No.”

Weezer doing Toto's "Africa" has been popular lately. Weird Al stars in the video for the song.
