Gary Jules' Mad World I would say is subjectively better than the original Tears for Fears version, but the songs are pretty different so ehh.

Also Jonathan Coulton's version of Famous Blue Raincoat.

Both Gears Commercials had music that did not fit at all with the idea they were giving.

But what the hey, retrospective war music.

Yeah, this. Although there is a track that has the same name of the album as well.
Peace.

This seems a good a place to mention this as any. I was having a conversation with someone a couple of days ago and the general consensus among the assembled was that the stones were more influenced by the blues and the beatles more influenced by jazz

If this makes no sense, keep in mind not only did I not originate this theory but I think the person who did was somewhat drunk

I heard that the Rolling Stones got their name from a Muddy Waters song, so maybe?
Peace.

"Rollin' Stone" = Muddy Waters

"Like a rolling stone" = Bob Dylan, influenced by the aforementioned.

Apparently

I actually like Maynard's version of Imagine better than John Lennon's.
