Sound editing project at SAE, where we had a copy of Blue Monday that was cut wrong and we had to re-edit it into the correct order.  With reel to reel tape and sticky tape.

Personally I dont like it when a cover song sounds almost identical because i cant see the point in them. I like it when a band or artist covers a song in a completely different style. So for example a metal band covering another metal song seems a bit pointless to me.

Cover
The Delgados changed it from the orchestral classic rock and synthesizers style of ELO and made it into a little twee chamber pop-esque little ditty.

Cover
Italian DJ's The Bloody Beetroots decided to do a brutal, thrash metal influenced electro banger of the track and came up with this beast.

Technically its a remix but its their version of Seek and Destroy so its still a cover.
