68 Nick Carter    
69 Nicki Minaj Okay the thing that disturbs me about this cover, is not the cover itself, but at the beginning of the song Travis are being interviewed by some woman who says:

"Why did you choose to do the Britney cover of that awful awful song, that you’ve made quite good? I mean very good."

Then Travis say something about the song "Hotel California" and they're in a bar and they sing "Baby One More Time", they didn't know the words and so they got Jive to fax the lyrics to them when they did it on air someone having to hold the lyrics in front of them – I think they sang it for radio first.

Anyway, apart from that woman's rude comment, the cover is quite good, but not as good as Fountains of Wayne's version (in my opinion).

    29 December 2006: Andrea emailed me and told me that Ultimate Kaos covered Dede song "My Lover" on their album The Kaos Theory. Thanks Andrea!
   
   
   

"My Lover" was the second single.

According to www.last.fm: Haydon Eshun, Jomo Baxter, Jayde Delpratt, Ryan Elliott, and Nick Grant were Ultimate Kaos - a mid-90s British boyband with R&B stylings. Link:http://www.last.fm/music/Ultimate+Kaos/+wiki

Ultimate Kaos were apparently put together by Stock Aitken Waterman.

You may remember their hit song Casanova from 1998 (written by Reggie Calloway and produced by Mike Stock and Matt Aitken) (Reggie Calloway co-wrote NSync's I'll Be Good For You).

    Hot Banditoz  
    Single  
    I Want It That Way  
    Released 3 February 2006
       
    Official website: http://www.hot-banditoz.de/
       
       
       
       
    27 September 2006: Andrea (from Italy I think) emailed and told me about German band Hot Banditoz covering Backstreet Boys I Want It That Way. Thanks Andrea!
   
    Hot Banditoz have definitely made this song sound more 'Euro' and some lyrics are in German, it still sounds great though - that melody!
   
    Here is the link on Amazon.de, you can hear a bit of the song: www.amazon.de - Hot Banditoz

    Paul Anka  
    Rock Swings  
       
    Released 3 October 2005
       
    Cover of Bon Jovi's It's My Life
       
       
       
       
       
       
    Paul Anka sings 'big band' versions of pop and rock classics. These are very different versions but Paul Anka still keeps the tunes. Apart from It's My Life, other great covers on this cd are Van Halen's Jump and Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit.

    I don't know too much about Fountains of Wayne, but this cd is really good. Baby One More Time sounds great too.

    Richard Thompson  
    1000 Years of Popular Music  
    Released 27 March 2006
       
    Oops I Did It Again
       
     
    Richard Thompson is married to Linda Thompson who is also a singer and songwriter. Allexperts say that she is the Linda Thompson who co-wrote Backstreet Boys "Drowning" (Link: http://experts.about.com - Linda Thompson). However, Martin from Sweden and I think Allexperts are wrong! We think the Linda Thompson who co-wrote "Drowning" is in fact the American actress who was married to producer David Foster.
