    Wow!

    I'm impressed.

    I don't have a clue who Usher is, but anyone trying to redo what is arguably one of the best hoofing moments on film, and actually managing not to look like a damned fool, gets my respect.

    Best cover song of all time? Depends on the genre, of course.

    Bye Bye Blackbird, maybe.

    A good cover song improves on the original, and in fact blows the original away:


    Van Halen: You Really Got Me

    Guns and Roses: Knocking on Heaven's Door

    Run DMC: Walk this Way

    Anything Eva Cassidy does: Fields of Gold, Over the Rainbow, Amazing Grace, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Time After Time. That woman had an amazing voice, too bad she is gone.

    Also, the entire Across the Universe has some good Beatles remixes.

    I did a few covers for Killswitch Engage and Bullet for My Valentine if anyone's interested. They're up on YouTube - same username.

    I saw that Vanilla Fudge covered the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way" and I thought "what the hell were they thinking?" but the made that song listenable.

    Billy Idol's cover of Tommy James's 'Mony Mony'

    I Like Tommy James Better but this was a very good cover song.
