I love the original of this one by Roy Orbison, brilliant, but i grew up listening to this one, so this remains my favourite:

Drove all night Cyndi Lauper:

Thats a really pretty vesion of imagine isn't it, really like it.

Like the sterophonics cover of 'nothing compares 2 u' too, not heard that before. I have the 1st 2 albums, haven't bought any cd's for ages, usually download anything i like now, easier and cheaper

This song was originally written and recorded by Sonny Curtis of The Crickets but was made famous by The Clash.
Here are two lesser known, but very good covers of this great song.

Bobby Fuller Four - I Fought The Law



Mike Ness - I Fought The Law



Oh, and will throw this in for good measure, Jello Biafra's unique take on things....

Dead Kennedy's - I Fought The Law
