Your favorite song covers?
« on: March 14, 2013, 10:14:24 am »
I've been listening to a lot of Punk goes Pop!
Basically metal/punk bands making covers of pop songs, like stuff from JB, MJ, and a lot of other artists.

And there are so many covers that I like and in my opinion many of them are better than the originals!

So I was wondering if any of you have covers that you like?

A few of my favorite covers are Alien Ant Farm's cover of Smooth Criminal by Michael Jackson.  Another is Orgy's cover of Blue Monday by New Order.  And then of course Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt by Nine Inch Nails.

I love Rush's covers of "The Seeker" by The Who, and "Seven and Seven Is" by Love

ELP's version of "The Barbarian" from composer Bela Bartok is pretty fucking impressive, Simon & Garfunkel's version of "Scarborough Fair" is outstanding too. Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt" is brilliant, as is his version of "Heart of Gold, originally by Neil Young. Oh! England Dan & John Ford Coley's version of "Love is the Answer" originally by Todd Rundgren is beautiful.

The power of the bass guitar is incredible. Nobody should ever underestimate that godly instrument.

Another cover I like is Leona Lewis' version of Avril Lavigne's "I Will Be"

I actually like Leona's version of the song more than Avril's. She puts more emotion into the song compared to Avril. Not saying Avril's a bad singer, oh no. I just think the song better fits Leona.

I really like Fox Amoore & Travis "Colson" Ratledge's cover of "Mad World" by Gary Jules. Colson has a great voice and Fox is amazing on piano. And the cover of "True Colors" by Fox and Lilypad, which is an emotional song but Lilypad also has a fantastic voice. Links {here} and {here} respectively.
