    Not normally a fan of covers, but I reckon Disturbed absolutely nailed the Sound of Silence:

    Hey, even at my tender age I just love ABBA you can't beat, or cover but there have need some decent tribute groups... Considering Benny and Bjorn own the rights to the songs I don't think (please correct me)they have ever sold the rights to the songs for covers.

    There have been covers, Erasure did do the Abbaisque EP, & Madonna managed to get permission to sample some of their songs.

    I'm a self confessed metal head but i also like to kick back, take a breath and enjoy some easy listening. One of my favourite songs is the Herb alpert cover of This guys in love with you, a hit in 1968 and originally recorded by Dione warwick also 1968 and called This GIRLS in love with you, Burt bacharachs finest hour (imo)
