When Newton Faulkner returns to the Highlands to play Inverness Ironworks on Sunday, guaranteed live highspots will include some of his eclectic mix of covers - let's take a look.

His fans have always been ready with great suggestions for new ones - everything from I Believe In A Thing Called Love by The Darkness to System Of A Down's Chop Suey and as one fan suggested to Newton of her choice, The B52s' Rock Lobster "if anyone could pull that off, it would be you".

But possibly the most popular one will be a hard act to follow ...


Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody at Loopallu last year

Newton Faulkner's cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is everything a good cover should be.

It's a beautiful thing in its own right - and it feels so different from the original that however many times you've heard that version, this one still brings you a new experience of the song.


Massive Attack's Teardrop

Newton brings his own unique style to Massive Attack's Teardrop which featured on his first album Hand Built By Robots. It came out as a single in 2007, having already dented the chart as a download-only five months earlier.


Spongebob Squarepants theme

Newton's a good sport and plays the theme tune when a mini-Spongebob Squarepants appears onstage with him…


The Baywatch theme tune

The cult US TV series finds an unexpected fan ...



Stevie Wonder's Superstition

This is just a great, joyful version of a classic.
