I feel like i may be one of the few who actually likes Aliens Ant Farm's Smooth Criminal...

 

But then again, I suppose I enjoy the catchyness of pop with the hard edge of rock.

 

For example Silverstein's rendition of Apologize is far more appealing to me than One Republic's.

I also enjoyed the Cowboy Junkies album Demons from their Nomad Series. A wonderful collection of Vic Chesnutt songs.

The album can be streamed from the website below, as well as purchased in FLAC/CD/Vinyl formats:

One of my favorite cover albums is Cry Cry Cry's (Richard Shindell, Dar Williams, and Lucy Kaplansky) self titled release. The cover of Robert Earl Keen's "Shades of Gray" is superb.

Puddles Pity Party does an excellent cover of Royals. I do not like Lorde, or that genre at all. But, this is so much better in every way!!!
