Best covers ever done are William Shatner doing a whole album of 'swinging tunes'......his rendition of 'Tambourine Man' brings tears to my eyes1) Her Majesty Elizabeth II & HRH Prince Philip joing what's left of the Sex Pistols for a heart-warming cover of 'Anarchy in the UK'2) Dennis Thacther - 'My Girls's Mad At Me' by Madness3) Pope JP II - Motorhead's 'Ace Of Spades'4) Lemmy - the shitty West ham anthem - 'I'm forever blowing bubbles'5) The Spice girls - doing something which involves their painful death6) Wendy James doing 'Whose got a Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts'7) Britnay doing something by Ozric Tenatcles8) Bhopal Children's Choir - 'Bright Eyes, burning like fire. Bright eyes, the smoke cloud won't go away! How can I breathe with the noxious fumes here, I can't even see my dad, bright Eyes!Bright Eyes buring like fire. Bright eyes, the fumes are making me cough. How can I rebuild my life when the American Cunts who caused this disaster got away scot free. bright eyes!9) Moira Hindley - Queen's 'I Want To Break Free!'10) Marco Frambolli - doing Queen's 'Bicycle races':)
