6.Crazy In Love (Snow Patrol)

Snow Patrol are a British rock band, formed in 1994 in Dundee, Scotland, consisting of Gary Lightbody, Nathan Connolly, Paul Wilson, Jonny Quinn and Johnny McDaid. This song certainly hit the right button due to the inventiveness and a different sort type of vibe in this well-made song, it is so different to the R &B version of Beyonce and Jay Z and this is so ingenious and it something you will always remember with this song.

5.Romeo And Juliet (The Killers)

The Killers are an American rock band formed in Las Vegas in 2001 by Brandon Flowers Dave Keuning and they consist of Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. I just like this song as it is so romantic and telling the perspective of Romeo and Juliet side and the Killers try to flip it into a rock type of love song, that blended in very well and it is so catchy.

Lily Rose Beatrice is an English singer, songwriter and author. She is the daughter of Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen, in 2005, she made some of her recordings public on Myspace and the publicity resulted in airplay on BBC1 Radio 1 and a contact with Regal Recordings.

3.Father and Son (Ronan Keating & Yusuf Islam)

Ronan Patrick John Keating is an Irish singer- songwriter, musician and philanthropist. He gained worldwide attention when his single “When You Say Nothing At All” was featured in the film Notting Hill and peaked at number one in several countries.

Leona Louise Lewis is a singer, songwriter, actress, model and activist. She won the third season of The X Factor in 2006 with her version of “A Moment Like This”, peaked at number one for four weeks on the UK single chart and broke a world record for reaching 50,000 digital downloads with 30 minutes. I just thought this song is so suitable and relevant to people around the world as it just a powerhouse that people can connect to.

1.Man In The Mirror (Ward Thomas)

Ward Thomas are an English modern country – pop duo, composed of twin sister Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas from Hampshire. The band has been called “Britain’s first country stars”. Everyone know that song very well as it originally by Michael Jackson but this version certainly is so different by tone it down and it is soulful, beautiful and sincere. It is one of those song that is so playable by this lesser-known band Ward Thomas and I predict they have a really good future.

  1. The Johnny Cash is a great version. I don’t know any of the others so I will have to check them out.
    I could give you some other great cover versions, but I don’t think they would be your kind of music!
