For some reason, I had remembered the Bangles cover of “Hazy Shade of Winter” as being much better than it is. I now feel as though someone ought to do a cover as good as I’d imagined it being. In related news, I finally paid enough attention to Wire’s lyrics to realize that R.E.M.’s “Strange” was a cover.
Since this post is otherwise unjustifiable, leave your favorite covers in the comments. (“All Along the Watchtower” is cheating.)
