Under Pressure, just cause it’s a good cover version, and Barcelona if it’s allowed, as 6 and 7.

The Vanilla Ice track, ‘Ice Ice Baby’.
The Queen version has different lyrics (nothing beats the couplet ‘Slice like a ninja, cut like a nlade’!), which aren’t as good IMHO, and Bowie emotes a bit too much, but as a humble tribute to White Rap, it’s pretty good.

Yeah I agree they trashed the spirit of the song, but I think they came up with something worthwhile.

Under Pressure is allowed then?

Yes, I think so - it appears on a Queen album, despite the credit, and being a cover of that cracking Vanilla Ice number. Separately, Queen recorded several covers on live albums, all of which would be allowed - i have always liked their Tutti Frutti. One time I saw them live they played a snippet of Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting, and I wish they had recorded the whole of it.

Killer Queen
You’re My Best Friend
Somebody to Love
Bohemian Rhapsody
Funny How Love Is
Good Old Fashion Lover Boy
The Millionaire Waltz
Under Pressure
We Are The Champions
Another One Bites The Dust
Stone Cold Crazy
March of the Black Queen
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Love of My Life
Get Down, Make Love
Tie Your Mother Down
Fat Bottom Girls
Spread Your Wings
Hammer to Fall
It’s Late
Don’t Stop Me Now

I sent a list in, for what it's worth. It would be completely different tomorrow I suppose, and I can't say I'm too happy with it, but it'll do for this exercise.
