Have you ever heard any weird versions of songs you like?

I ask this because the local NPR affiliate here in Chicago, WBEZ, plays jazz (mostly bebop) after 8pm Central Time. One night last week, I heard a jazz version of the Nirvana song "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Also, a few weeks ago I heard a jazz arrangement of the Black Sabbath classic "Iron Man". Both were pretty good, but it was just weird hearing two of my favorite metal songs played like that biggrin.gif .

I once heard a 'muzak' version of Joy Division's, "Love Will Tear Us Apart" being played in a shopping mall. The singer apparently didn't pay attention to the lyrics and crooned it as a happy love song.

Just did a search on "love will tear us apart muzak" but didn't find the rendition. However, here's a gem.... it's called "Prozak for Lovers" and described as "A mellow lounge duo doing classic hard rock cover songs".

The track listing:

1. Proud Mary
2. Pump It Up
3. Aqualung
4. Love Will Tear Us Apart
5. (Don't Fear) the Reaper
6. Message of Love
7. I Wanna Be Sedated
8. London Calling
9. Rebel Rebel
10. Folsom Prison Blues

I wish I could recall more details, but there was a bluegrass band a couple of years ago that put out a cd of bluegrass covers of ACDC, I think. I thought it was actually pretty good!
