Whilst slating Coldplay ... I think it’s important to remember this ... I’m not sure how much justice it does to the original .... but in fairness to them it moved me ... it’s also off topic slightly

I see your take that and raise you a Coldplay!

Fairytale of New York - Ronan Keating. 

Ronan try and sound like an angry pirate. Yep  youve nailed it (and h3 changed the words before it was a thing)

Tried to upload this for you, but failed. Also a worthy contender 😆

I think you may have underestimated Chris Martin and the lads ability!

😆 brings tears to eye. Maybe that explains why Sinead O’Connor was crying in her video of this song, I think she was crying because she knew that one day the song would be destroyed

Her version is also a cover.

I managed a few seconds of that before switching it off. Much like Al Qaeda beheading videos - you're better off never seeing them.

It's like Take That don't understand Nirvana. Ot themselves.

Robbie Williams - Lola. 

Not as bad as some of the examples in this thread but it's on a playlist at work and every time I hear it (couple of times a week) I'm annoyed that whoever put the list together chose that version instead of the Kinks. Why?

Really not enjoying the recent spate of maudlin, acoustic singer songwriter type covers of tracks that often weren't great to begin with. We've only just begun, rhythm of the night, forever young etc. See any recent Lloyds Bank advert for the latest flavour.
