    10/20 covers that are better than their originals

    1. Its My Life (talk Talk) - No Doubt
    2. Mr Tambourine Man - The Byrds (hey, it's all personal, some may prefer Bob Dylan)
    3. All Along The Watchtower - both the Jimi Hendrix and the XTC versions are more interesting than Bob Dylans
    4. The Other Side of Abbey Road - George Benson
    5. Respect - Aretha Franklin (the original was by Otis Redding)
    6. Give a Little Bit (Supertramp)- The Goo Goo Doll
    7. American Woman (The Guess Who) - Lenny Kravitz and Butthole Surfers
    8. I want Candy (Strangelove) - Bow Wow Wow did it MUCH better.
    9. Take It Easy- Travis Triitt (just my opinion)
    10. On Broadway - George Benson
    11. The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia-Reba McIntyre (again, my opinion)
    Hurley: (holding up a Jesus statue) I don't know. I thought there might be a prowler or something.
    Mrs. Reyes: (grabbing the statue) Jesus Christ is not a weapon! - LOST "There's No Place Like Home Pt. 1
