This was supposed to be a simple small post
about the “Best Cover Ever”:

Devo – Satisfaction (Rolling Stones)

But since I’m a sucker for covers, it quickly
got into the top 10 + 1 covers:

I wanted to put in Skin and their cover of Madonna’s
“Express Yourself” but didnt find any reference. And
that wasnt the +1…. *This* is the +1; I couldnt
resist listing it:

PS – One of these days I’ll post here the unreleased
cover of “No Teu Poema” by Taboo, a portuguese
unreleased band, which would actually top all of
the above. I just have to find where the MP3 is…
