    The treatment of the theme from 2:42 to the end is exquisite.

    He has a beautiful voice, he doesn't need the razzle dazzle of reproducing the instruments, a clean version of him singing it would have sufficed.

    I suspect more people know this great cover by This Mortal Coil of 'Song to the Siren' than the original by folk singer Tim Buckley. This Mortal Coil now kind own the song.

    Truthfully, I guess he did it to be different. In any case we can agree that he is talented aha.

    Also,

    I liked that N.G.E cover, but was it worth watching the show for is debatable.

    In all honesty, I was anti street corner during the first episode. I felt that if you didn't put time and effort into practicing then you didn't deserve to win....but as the season progressed I actually became a fan and was hoping they'd win. haha.

    It gives me chills when I hear this man sing and play the piano.
    I only wish he would have turned the mic up a bit on Lateralus.

    Her use of the loop peddle and her unique voice are pretty awesome.

    Jeff Buckley covering Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah is one of the best cover's ever. He really brings something to an already incredible song.

    And Gary Jules' rendition of Mad World and great video also

    That was great, but I also really loved Imogen Heap's rendition of Hallelujah... So pure, so emotionnally charged.

    Richard Marx cover of Right Here Waiting.Monica's voice just emotes so well.

    One of the few few few songs that I've heard that almost surpass the original.

    He talks for a bit at the beginning, so you have to go a little bit in. I think it's difficult to cover a MJ song and it even come off as tolerable, so this was a feat in my opinion. .

    I like Tracy Chapman and that's one of my favourite songs. These guys did a good job at playing her song, and they're talented, no doubt. But what I think makes a good cover song is when it's done a little different and has a new sound to it. Honestly they didn't bring anything new to the song, but they played it beautifully.

    Now, when I first heard this cover it surprised me. Stevie Wonder covering the Doors w a huge orchestra arrangement seemed a little funny, but I really like it, and it's very much stevie and not so much the Doors. To me this is a good example of a cover song. something that divides, you'll either hate it or love it. (sorry for the yotube sound quality )
