Saturday Music Club: some cover versions

pHoaming Edison: "Wichita Lineman"

Combustible Edison: "Cry Me a River"

Judith Owen, Richard Thomspon and Debra Dobkin
Julie London

Johnny Cash: "Hurt"

Fairport Convention: "Tried So Hard"

Erykah Badu and the Flaming Lips: "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" (video NSFW) and 
Amanda Palmer and the Flaming Lips: the replacement recording/video for the above (NSFW)

Gray Matter: "I Am the Walrus"

Bandits: "All Along the Watchtower"

Monsoon: "Tomorrow Never Knows"

The Slits: "I Heard It Through the Grapevine"

Fotheringay: "The Way I Feel"

...interesting to consider that the most popular versions of at least three of these were also covers, not including the Cash, where his version has all but eclipsed the original.
