    Nothing specific. Just cover songs. Reel Big Fish did Duran Duran. Wilson Pickett sang Hey Jude. If you like it and it's a cover list it.

    It was written by Leonard Cohen but has been covered by many. Buckley's is considered the definitive version by a lot of people.

    Others to consider:

    Johnny Cash - Hurt
    Hendrix - All along the watchtower
    Big Star - Femme Fatale
    Tom Petty - Something In The Air
    Neil Young - Blowin' In The Wind

    Johnny Cash's American Recordings album is almost entirely covers, all of them good.

    Low has a great cover of Joy Division's "Transmission"
