I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Oh wow. I thought Hayseed Dixie had mined that particular seam dry, but maybe not :)

(and what a perfect guitar sound she gets for the intro; I know I'm on tinny-laptop-sound, but at first I thought they were just miming!)

DJ Random just played me a vaguely hip-hop version of His Bobness' "Like A Rolling Stone", sung mostly in Spanish.  By Beck, natch.  Oddly appealing.

I'll give you most of those but I still prefer Billie Holiday's version of Strange Fruit.

Oh, Billie's is electrifying and unmatchable, but Nina's is a keening lament turning to anger, which brings a different aspect to the song.

Never heard Nina Simone's version of Strange Fruit before so just looked it up on youtube. Crumbs. That's powerful.

Her version of Sign O' The Times posted by ESL earlier is rather excellent too.

DJ Random played me a rather compelling version of His Bobness' "Masters Of War" yesterday, which I had to check on iTunes to learn that it was credited to Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready.

DJ Random played a version of Pink Floyd's "Fearless" this afternoon.  Slightly unfamiliar and lacked the Kop Khoir singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" at the end.  Turned out to be Low.

Roger Taylor covered it on one of his solo albums, possibly Strange Frontier. Roger Taylor of Queen, not Duran Duran.

Have Walk off the World appeared here before and I missed them?

Outkast Hey Ya was the first one I heard
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7R8XRKqHAI


Then found their Search Results Somebody That I Used to Know at some point
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9NF2edxy-M
which apparently has been found by upwards of 180M before now

Nice. A bit gimmicky but nice.

Makes you think how much better OK Go would be if they used other people's songs for their videos.
