I liked Cash's version of Jesus. But then, I liked Marilyn Manson's version, too.


Cash's version of "Hurt" (Nine Inch Nails) is wonderful.


That was remarkable. I especially love Thompson's little "dance party hand thing" at the end of the song.


That Richard Thompson version comes from his "1000 Years of Popular Music" CD which is an absolute hoot! I almost plotzed when I heard "Oops..." the first time.

One of my favorite covers comes from the depths of the'80s - Aztec Camera covering "Jump" by Van Halen.

If anyone is really loves covers as much as I, check our Brian Ibbott's "Coverville" podcast. I can only imagine he's played Richard Thompson's inner Britney moment.


At first I thought this was your April Fool's joke. It was hard for me to process the fact that Richard Thompson had ever even heard Britney Spears sing anything; I imagined that he had people to shield him from that sort of rubbish. But his cover was absolutely perfect; the guitar work made it even more hilarious.
