    Cake.
    heh.



    I once had a guy workin' for me (a relocated Californian) who went to high school with the Cake guys -- my introduction to their music was the CD boombox in the lab.

    Along those lines -- Sting did a nice take on Reg & Bernie's Come Down in Time on the tribute album, Two Rooms.

    Not sure they are better than the originals, but they are very different than the originals. I like them alot. Did you really think I would leave YES out of this thread!? :D
    YES, doing Simon and Garfunkle's America:


    YES doing Roger's and Hammerstin's "Something's Coming":
