    I won't make a top 10, but most interesting to my ears were:
    1. No One Can Hold a Candle To You (much better than the original, sorry James M.)
    2. That's Entertainment (also quite different from the original)
    3. Interlude (mainly because it s the only real duet he has ever recorded)
    4. Song From the Floorboard
    5. My insatiable One (my introduction to Suede's music in 1992 - and I still listen to them now !)

    Most other covers he has done are quite enjoyable.
    To Give (The Reason I Live) actually bored me to death when played live.
    His version of Satellite of Love really didn't do it for me: it missed the intensity of the original version and sounded too bland.

    Cosmic Dancer is a favourite of mine,I love the sparseness of the acoustic guitar and the emotion of Morrissey's voice is sublime,

    I don't think that Morrissey is a great cover singer,
    World is a four letter word is my favorite, that's entertainment and chain gang are quite interesting
