I love Fobia but when it comes to cover Queen, there's no way to improve it. Nice try, though.

3. "Just like Heaven" by The Cure.

This has to be my fave song by The Cure.

Live cover by AFI.

I must say I love this version. Davey Havok can really transmit with his voice and that's something very special. The song sounds fresh. But still... is it better? Mmm... don't think so. By the way, the version they made for the "Just like Heaven" movie (credits) is terrible, they simply ruined it.

4. "Across the Universe" by The Beatles.

Probably all of The Beatles' songs have been covered but none will ever be better.

By Jim Sturgess from the movie "Across the Universe".

Not even this excellent and touching one.

5. "Please please please let me get what I want" by The Smiths.

Now, this was a really tough choice 'cause I love both versions and I couldn't decide which was better, but I think this is it.

Cover by Muse.

Muse is without a doubt one of the best bands of the moment, and even though the cover is great, I think is less emotional than the original which is more like a prayer than just a song.
