You could have picked any Led Zeppelin song for this one, heh heh.

OK, that's kind of unfair. But I raise my glass of blueberry juice to your inclusion of R.E.M.'s "Toys in the Attic," which introduced me to what's pretty much the only Aerosmith song I can stand, and the Church's "Hiroshima Mon Amour," which comes from what I think is one of that band's most underrated records (though my understanding is that the band itself disdains it), and is also the cut that encouraged me to dig into Ultravox's pre-Midge Ure catalog.

You mined three of the best all-covers albums out there, in Pinups, A Box of Birds, and If I Had a High-Five. Made for a great show.

The March Violet's "Miss Amanda Jones" is an ace cover as well. Good choices all!

Thank you for the kind words, everyone.

Yeah, that March Violets version might be the least Stonesy-sounding cover available of any Stones song.

For least Stonesy Stones cover I nominate Devo's version of Satisfaction.
