Wow!..Surprised to see Leonard's original version and one of his live versions being included in a list of 50 "Covers". :D

Also they are only ranked at number 4 & 5 ... :shock:

Interesting list, a number of which I haven't heard. I'm sure, like any "Top" listing this could spark some debate amongst fans.

Thanks for posting.

Some of these are pure pap while others are stellar. Really liked the countdown from 10 - a number of surprises to me.
