People in England really like this band.

One area of the world of covers we have yet to tread on are the sort which are almost impossible to discern as such. Entirely distinct from “reinventing the wheel” (an admittedly stupid turn of phrase), some bands pick songs to perform which sound inherently as if they were written for or by them.

The best example of this I can think of is the Artic Monkey’s cover of Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good.” Although her version is instantly recognizable Winehouse, the Arctic Monkey’s put a very subtle spin on it so that it’s hard to think of it as being anything other than their song.
