    Holy Necro Snook, what are you doing? Well this was the thread in which I had my first ever post so I am taking the advice of DMC and posting my 4,000th post and therefore my Rogue Stone post to bring it back to life.

    Yeah, but you need to update your response . . . .

    . . . any new lauded or hated covers?

    I will have to think about it. I am still really partial to Hurt so I'm not sure if my answer changes.

    For pure summer fun songs I have liked these two. One is a cover the other is more of a sample

    I thought for sure you were going to update with the 46 and 2 cover.

    Good call. I still listen to that. I am working from home today and College Snook has been playing music all day and it is more a "songs of summer" day so that is what is stuck in my head.

    Yikes! Necro-ing the necro! I couldn't figure out why I hadn't seen this thread before, and then realized that when the thread was more active (i.e. prior to Snook's necro), the last post was just before I joined.

    Anyway, I don't like covers that basically re-hash the original. If I want to listen to something that sounds like the original, I'll listen to the original.

    I like covers that take songs in a totally new direction; bonus points if I like the cover but hate the original. For example, I Got You Babe by UB40/Chrissy Hynde, You Are Always On My Mind by Pet Shop Boys.

    (Yes, I know I didn't actually post favorite/most hate covers, but if I'm going to necro something, I might as well go somewhat off-topic in doing so. :p )
