All around me are familiar faces

Worn out places, worn out faces

Bright and early for their daily races

Going nowhere, going nowhere

And their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression, no expression

Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

No tomorrow, no tomorrow


And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

'Cos I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very

Mad World


Children waiting for the day they feel good

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday

Made to feel the way that every child should

Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous

No one knew me, no one knew me

Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson

Look right through me, look right through me

I like both Fiona Apple's and Rufus Wainwright's cover of Across The Universe and Oasis' cover of I am The Walrus (but mostly because of the story behind it), but that's about it.


I don't think I've heard Dove's cover of Blackbird, though.




Oh, wait. EDIT: I forgot about Ray Charles' cover of Yesterday. It's so beautiful, I might like it more than the original.

The Fray's "Heartless" cover I am rather fond of.

Same here.


Thats the one. Who else has covered it?

That guy from American Idol did I believe.


For the most part, covers are either the same or worse than the original. But in some cases they are just as good or even better. Where would Hallelujah be without Jeff and Rufus and John covering it so beautifully? Nearly every Bob Dylan song has been covered and most of the time the covers are far better since the new versions put so much into them.


Hendrix's All Along The Watchtower? Fahget about it.
