    I think Whisky in the Jar is a traditional Irish song that Thin Lizzy covered

    I was always a fan of U2’s cover of unchained melody.

    Jesus don’t want me for a sunbeam of the Nirvana unplugged album is probably my favourite though.

    Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

    Yeah decent version. Don't like it though because it kept the best ever Xmas song off number 1
