Covers can make me cry

Now this Editors cover of Orange Crush one really doesn't, although the opening few seconds hint at a nightmare cover that eventually morphs into a more or less re-recording version. The main question is how he deals with the incomprehensible mutterings of Stipe found in the latter half of the song. He does a fair job at making them sound more like recognizable words.

This Los Campensinos cover of Pavement's Frontwards does in fact make me cry. And not in the with-joy sense.
