A thread last night got me thinking......

Post your favorite YouTube videos of cover songs.

Here's one of mine.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axnCMV-o ... re=related

The song is Leonard Cohen's Everybody Knows.

Better than the original IMHO.

Nine-Year-Old Pulp Fan Wins Jarvis Cocker-Judged Karaoke Contest

I love most Pulp albums, and this is the title track from a favorite. This is bizarre to witness, especially if you know the song. It really seems to be the kid's favorite song. :|
