I changed my vote!!  
Recently, I responded to someone's post about which cover of "Across the Universe" was the best. I said the John Lennon accoustic was the best, and the best cover was Rufus Wainwright. I thought my only other choice was Fiona Apple.

Well, fuck me, I just discovered DAVID BOWIE did a cover of the same song. I'm not sure if it's the best, but god damn, I didn't even know it was a choice until now! Holy shit man!

David Bowie might just win by default...

And I'll give two points to anyone who can guess which Bowie album I opened first, just from looking at my last song choices, hehe.
Mood: Zowie!
Music: David Bowie - Across the Universe

David Bowie cheated. He had Lennon working on it with him. I think it's the low point of the "Young Americans" album. I mean, what could beat "Fascination", "Win", "Somebody up There Likes Me" or "Fame"?

True enough, and I suppose having Lennon there is cheating, and listening, I would agree it is the least of the songs.

The point was I had no idea it was the same song. I'd always just assumed it would be a different song of the same name. Now I know better.

By the way, two points for you and knowing the album. Good show, man!

Yes...thank you kindly. My list goes something like this now:

Space Oddity
The Man Who Sold the World
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
Aladdin Sane
Young Americans

By the by, did you ever get that copy of Outside like we were talking about?
