This is self evidently the fourth part of our series of the best ever cover versions sent in by readers to our Facebook site. They are not in any order other than the order in which they were submitted (and not always that!)
Please do keep sending in new ideas, either to the Facebook site or in the comments below. I will keep adding new articles of ten suggestions at a time until I run out of suggestions, and at the end will record all the articles together in an index so we can go back and find the lists with ease without jumping around the site.
My random comments are not meant to suggest that I don’t like the versions I haven’t commented on – it’s quite overwhelming to run through each list of ten one after the after, and it is for me truly enjoyable to listen to all these different choices.
A really sincere thank you to everyone who has contributed.
As before where available I am linking to YouTube videos but where none seems to be available I’m adding the Spotify link. To access this you will need a Spotify account – but obtaining one is free – just fill in the form.
Here we go with 31 to 40. In putting this list together I got more and more carried away with what has been unleashed here. Thank you everyone. You have made this whole project so worthwhile. Stuff in square brackets is added by me.
31: I shall be released by Pearls before swine. Suggested by Hans Kramer
32: Down in the flood by Howard Fishman. [Spotify]. Suggested by Hans Kramer
