Its tough to order them, so here is my top 5:

- Baker Street
- Down In The Park
- Danny Says (Love the Ramones, and this is a good cover)
- Band On The Run
- I'm In Love With A German Film Star

I only got my Medium Rare CD on Friday, so haven't had a chance to fully take in the "new" covers on it. I've been avoiding listening to any Vinyl rips on Youtube.

Couldn't decide whether I should have included Darling Nikki in the top 5, but I think I prefer the above a little more TBH.

I've only listened to Medium Rare in terms of covers. Eventually I'll get all the old singles.
