1. “Stairway to Heaven,” Dolly Parton (Led Zeppelin)
Queen of country rescues song from amateur guitar players everywhere with a soulful rendition that’ll have you in tears.
2. “Baby Got Back,” Jonathan Coulton
MySpace white boy folk-rocks his way through an ode to big butts; great four-part harmony on “L.A. face with the Oakland booty.”
3. “Hazy Shade of Winter,” the Bangles (Simon and Garfunkel)
The way Paul Simon originally intended it – with a killer guitar riff and a drugged-out Robert Downey Jr.
4. “Nothing Compares 2 U,” Sinead O’Connor (Prince)
Close-cropped video and passionate rendition brought little-known Prince track to light.
5. “Showroom Dummies,” Señor Coconut & His Orchestra (Kraftwerk)

6. “Smooth Criminal,” Alien Ant Farm (Michael Jackson)
Turns “Annie are you OK” into a head-banging mantra.
7. “Personal Jesus,” Johnny Cash (Depeche Mode)
Electronica transformed into a painful, soul-crushing ballad. In a good way!
8. “Against All Odds,” the Postal Service (Phil Collins)
We can’t wait for what they’re going to do to “Sussudio.”
9. “Easy (Like Sunday Morning),” Faith No More (the Commodores)
If this song can’t get you some lovin’, take a hard, hard look at yourself.
