Sonic Youth - Superstar
Sonic Youth's cover of the Carpenters' "Superstar" is one of my favourite covers of all time. Wait a minute... the Carpenters aren't the original singers of "Superstar"? It was first released by Delaney and Bonnie back in '69 and many artists, including Bette Midler and Cher got to it before the Carpenters, but the Carpenters made it famous back in '71.

Sonic Youth recorded it for the 1994 tribute album If I Were a Carpenter and their version haunts me. Sonic Youth did for the Carpenters what Chris Cornell did for Michael Jackson. You may have heard this version recently in Juno. Enjoy...
