Staying Alive - Bruce Springsteen

During Bruceís tour of Australia he paid tribute to Australian artists in the different cities he played there. Staying Alive is certainly not a song youíd think heíd do justice to, but he makes it his own and this version is cool.

Have any artists covered U2?  Sure there must be some out there but i can't think of any.  And i'm ignoring the horrible Mary J. Blige cover of One, not because it was so bad, but because i believe it was done with U2 somehow.

Crazy Mary - Pearl Jam

Cover of an unknown somewhat haunting Victoria Williams song on a benefit CD. Great song and cover.
