    I couldn't help noticing that pink bottle of InfaCare lotion in that picture which dates it to 1987 - I used to use the blue bubble bath version when I was younger.

    " Seasons In The sun that Terry Jacks originally did in the 70s."

    That was itself a cover! The original was "Le Moribund" by Jacques Brel in 1961.
    The first English cover was by Rod McEwan in 1963.

    Westlife probably did 2 of the best cover versions - of Seasons In The sun that Terry Jacks originally did in the 70s, but I think Terry's just shades it - but Against All Odds with Mariah Carey (and both Westlife and Mariah was arguably the Kings and Queen of Pop) certainlydid go Against All Odds and even excelled the amazing Phill Collins' version from the 80s

    As much as I am a fan of Phil Collins - Westlife and Mariah win with this one I think, because yeah Phil is an amazing singer, but too many of his songs follow the exact same tune and this is how Westlife and Mariah just sneaked it over the orginial I feel

    Maddonna totaly re-invented Don McClean's American Pie and twisted it until it was nothing like and in essence knocking half of the 7 or 8 mins long off it - that it originaly ran, but I still like it and until Madge and Don do a Duet on it I'll never accept it as an original that was covered in any way - as much as too I am amega mega Madge fan!!


    Moving back onto Mariah Carey her version of Nillsson and Without You nearly sneaked his origiinal I thought - but not quite!!!

    Some other notable 1s that I'd call un-known as covers are Mike Flowers Pop Group from the mid 90s who was a sort of Gospel/Pop Group covered Oasis' Wonderwall with immense sucsess and turned it into a very very sweet mellowed song I thought and it worked well with their other Song on the CD they brought out - Son Of God

    One where Nillisson can not win though is v the Housemartins and Everybody's Talking which was very differing tune-wise I found. Probably the greatest cover done though was the Pet Shop Boys doing Elvis' Always On My Mind - as if anyone could top an already "Slow-Burner" so well ..... but they did, regardless of them rightly or wrongly being part of the Electro Pop Musi/Electro Instruments they used that was so so common in their 80s hey-day!!

    Watched a movie called Sucker Punch recently which has a couple of decent covers of Sweet dreams (Eurythmics) and Where is my mind (Pixies) by Emily Browning.

    Re: Cover Songs.

    Paul Young's Love of the Common People and Madness' It Must Be Love sound like very 1980s songs, so it seemed bizarre to me that earlier versions were made at the start of the 1970s.

    When I was younger, I really thought that most of Shaky's hits were originals because it felt as if his "trademark" was on them.
