...covers U2 (Part 1)

The recent debate over whether or not Adam Lambert's version of U2's One on American idol was any good, has caused me to post a few other bands/artists who've covered U2 songs. I am very picky when it comes to the band, as you know. To sing a U2 song, it must come from within, from the soul.

What do you think of these covers? I'm holding off my full thoughts until I have a chance to listen without distraction here at the station. Upon first listen, I really like Live's version of RTSS. Now, there is soul.

Live - Running To Stand Still:

Elvis Costello - Please:

Daughtry - Sunday Bloody Sunday:

Girl on youtube - The Ground Beneath Her Feet:

Howie Day - One:
