I can recognise Paranoid Android, but I don't see how this one bears any resemblance to the original song.

Townes Van Zandt penned a lot of great songs which have been duly covered, but his cover of the Stones' "Dead Flowers" (brought to a wider audience in The Big Lebowski) is a fine cover in itself:

Tori does a very sultry cover of Teen Spirit. Nice!

Who woulda thought that someone could make something so lovely out of a fookin' Sting song?

^ speaking of old-timey blues songs,
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqU7zyPxhBw[/youtube]
a nice take on the Dylan version, which is itself an interesting take on the old gospel/blues number.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MH78fqrnsFY[/youtube]
much better than the ridiculous Animals version (casting the narrator as a guy :doh: stuck in a house of ill repute) of the Dylan version of the Dave Van Ronk version of the old Leadbelly number...

[As anybody can see, I have a bit of a crush on those girls from British Columbia.]

The entire album is a really good tribute to Dio. It's a shame he died without being able to hear it.
