The top 10 greatest covers

As lovers of classic music (and not only), we’ve never hidden our passion for covers. Here’s our favourite covers playlist.

We’ve intentionally omitted very well-known covers such as Nirvana’s version of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World, the Fiona Apple’s heartbreaking cover of Across The Universe by the Beatles, unforgettable covers including Johnny Cash’s Hurt by Nine Inch Nails, Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, better performed by Jeff Buckley or the irreverent version of My Way by Sid Vicious…
