Thread: Best covers

  1. #1

    Default Best covers

    Covers are usually like decaf, blow-up dolls and non-alcoholic beer - ie not the real thing. But some of them are better than originals. Taking the song and making it your own is a big part of it. I'll start with two...

    Johnny Cash - Hurt (Originally Nine Inch Nails): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aF9AJm0RFc
    Placebo - Running Up That Hill (Originally Kate Bush): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KEEXyRL0qE

    I can't say I've come across many covers I like (or at least none that instantly spring to mind). I was about to post one when I realised it was a remix. I find they're more interesting, usually covers are like a small cup of cold decaf with lots of milk, the worst way to drink coffee imo!

    I love both of those covers. I think it shows how successful Cash's one is because a lot of people I know think that his is the original.

    I like this cover of Pixies - Where is my mind?





    I'm very fond of 2CELLOS too. Thunderstruck is, in my opinion, one of their best.

    Some amazing covers out there I love them! I prefer instrumental or Acapella ones, but you do get some quality all round covers too...

    www.vube.com

    That website has loads of covers and they all compete for votes which gives them cash rewards. Worth looking at if you like cover songs. Or just browse youtube

    Moving down the pecking order, there's Sid Vicious - My Way (Original by Frank Sinatra) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD0eb0tDjIk It's really so bad, it's actually good.

    Apocalytica started it with the cellos in the 1990ies, playing Metallica. I've seen them live twice, occasionally brilliant.
