Cover songs which are better than the original


analogue

Recommended Posts

Wow, i'd really have 2 think about this one. It's hard 2 say that covers are actually better than the original due 2 stuff like people never hearing the original b4...or growing up on the cover b4 hearing the original...or just loving the artist who did the cover.

Off the top of my head, here's a few covers that i love...

Luther Vandross + Mariah Carey - Endless Love

TLC - If I Was You Girlfriend

Montell Jordan - Close The Door

Mary J. Blige - I'm Goin' Down

Boyz II Men - Sara Smile

DHT - Listen To Your Heart

Speech - Freedom

The Marvin Is 60 album is dope. The covers on the SharkTale soundtrack are great.

I actually really enjoyed Jerry Lee Lewis's new album. Pretty much all of the songs are covers but he does sing the majority of them with an original singer. I really liked Rock and Roll and Pink Cadilliac. He can still play his piano, i think they made a cgi music video for pink cadillac on youtube, if anyone's interested.

I really like Seal's version of 'Fly like an eagle'. That one is amazing (Just like the rest of the space jam sound track)

:yeahthat:

Are there any cover songs out there that you like better than the original?

I always thought that Michael Jackson's version of Come Together was better than The Beatles

:susel[1]: Hell 2 naw Michael Jackson's cover is NOT better then The Beatles! The Beatles way better! I would have to pick Areosmith's Come Together great cover.
