Almost Heaven

Now, normally, I'm not a huge fan of remakes, particularly musical remakes...and that goes triple for a U2 song. Up until Adam Lambert sang One (on American Idol) I hadn't heard a U2 remake I could tolerate. (And yes that includes the Glee version of One.) But, when checking Jared Leto's Twitter (as I am wont to do) I discovered that 30 Seconds to Mars had covered Where The Streets Have No Name for MTV Unplugged. And my heart almost stopped. One of my favourite bands covering a song by my other favourite band. And the result? Blew. My. Mind. See for yourself:

Found on: Where The Streets Have No Name (30 Seconds To Mars) [U2 cover] from Grazzia on Vimeo.

Now I just have to cross my fingers in the hope that I can see 30 Seconds to Mars and U2 (together) live. That would be heaven.

So, what's your favourite (musical) cover?


  1. I could go on about covers for absolutely days. I could probably write a blog or three about covers. Luckily, someone already has.


    One of my absolute favorites is probably Fiona Apple & Johnny Cash covering Cat Stevens Father & Son.


  2. I have a feeling I'll be lurking on the http://www.covermesongs.com
    site for quite a while :)

    I love Father & Son and that is one great cover by Fiona Apple & Johnny Cash! Thanks Meoskop :)
