The Cure's Version (Lyrics kick in around 2:50): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucbfzjFqbUc

I felt the Deftones' take was darker and more seductive.
Thats a sick performance, back when Chino was fat haha. I saw them recently in Camden, he was jumping around the stage going nuts. Crazy energy. They got 2 new covers I like on the new album:
Do you Believe (The Cardigans cover)
Ghosts (Japan)
They also covered Sweetest Perfection by Depeche Mode, I like that one too. However I am biased as hell towards Deftones, not even denying that.

Yessir. I saw them in Grand Rapids last year. It was pretty awesome to see Chino seemingly refreshed and in shape. I was worried about him for a while. But he came out on stage staring out into the abyss, grinning, as if he were reborn. It was a spectacular show.

And I am a big fan of their version of "Do You Believe", though I am unfamiliar with the original. I am not as big a fan of "Ghosts".

I just started listening to their latest album. Think the album is phenomenal.

Finally got around to listening to the original version of "Do You Believe" by the Cardigans and I think the Deftones' version blows it away.

Off topic but I recently learned that some female singer named Birdy covered Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" and ppl actually prefer it to the original.

Birdy
Bon Iver

The cover is so hollow compared to the original.

I can't stand listening to Limp Bizkit anymore but I used to love "Faith" by them. Much better than The Who.
