      How Soon Is Now? by Love Spit Love is a very good cover
      Kirsty Maccoll's version of "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" from the 'She's Having A Baby' Movie Soundtrack.
      Unwoman kicks "I Know It's Over" on the cello!

      Sandie Shaw's version of "Jeane". No doubt helped by the fact it features Morrissey and Marr, it betters the original for me.

      I thought "Where are the Dum Dum Girls?" too! The best one out there! And Morrissey wrote that song for Nancy, right? Not really a cover...

      that Dum Dum Girls cover (which ive not ever heard before now) is far better than anything on that list.

      I agree, its great, but Annie Lennox singing "Last Night I Dreamt..." is pretty awesome too

      Surely, 'Let Me Kiss You' was written for Nancy Sinatra, so it is the case that Morrissey covered a Nancy Sinatra track, not the other way around?
