Is it? I don't really know, it's surely been covered by almost everybody, lol (another great version is the one by John Cale, by the way). But the words are so beautiful, why don't you like it? :)

Okay, so to go for a less covered song..."Dancing Barefoot". But that's no fair, no one beats Patti (Bono's version really sucks) :) And no one can do justice to "Running Up that Hill" but Kate, so...sorry, Placebo. :?

Ha ha, I'm not good at this!

I love DEVO's version of the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction". I think the video isn't on YouTube because of copyrights but it's on dailymotion.com if you type "Devo Satisfaction", I'm pretty sure. They really deconstructed the song and made it their own. I love it.

I got the video of Satisfation by Devo. Not sure if you will be able to see it there. You´re right is a pretty particular version.

Chucky, I knew this song by U2. The name is Who´s gonna ride your wild horses! I don´t know if it´s an original song by this group of is a version of another singer.

Question for all: Do you know what american and english people mean when they talk abou "ride wild horses" ???????? I don´t understand the meaning.

This version of U2's song 'Beautiful Day' covered by Sanctus Real.

It is more rocky and has a faster pace to it then the original.
