"Dancing In the Dark"
covered by Pete Yorn
I know it seems blasphemous to say that Pete Yorn could do a song better than Bruce Springsteen, but the lyrics to this song are some of the Boss's most heartwrenching and he made a mistake when he threw those cheezed up synths on top of it. These lyrics needed an eeyore and he gave them a tigger. Pete Yorn and his mournful piano are that eeyore.
covered by the Shins
There's nothing wrong with the Postal Services version, it's a very enjoyable song. The shins version is just a GREAT song.
"On With The Show"
covered by the Get Up Kids
So this isn't even really a great get up kids song. The thing is, as a Mötley Crüe song, it's not even listenable.
