Covers You Like More than the Original
« on: April 29, 2014, 10:12:40 pm »
Do you like any song covers more than the original?
For me it has to be Peter Tosh's cover of the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun"

For some reason I feel his delivery sounds better to my ears than the Beatles rendition.

I like some acoustic covers over their own songs but other than that, I don't usually listen to others.

I loved Sleeping with Siren's cover of Fuck You. I didn't like the original by Cee Lo Green at all.

I also found 311's version of Love Song a bit more tolerable than The Cure's version.
My signature needs a change. It's been four years.

Disturbed's cover of Land of Confusion. I like the original done by Genisis but the one Disturbed did was more up-beat and I liked it just  bit more.

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive (Pentatonix Cover)
I don't really like the song, but the cover created such a stir.

....Cee lo Green's cover of Kung Fu Fighting was pretty good.

As for the worst cover Iv'e heard, the award goes to the 2001 remaster of Micheal Jackson's Beat It with Fergie. I'd rather stick a toothpick under my toenail and kick a wall, its that bad.   :fox-:P:

Ah yes, Pentatonix! They really do have a talent for redefining a song.

Ah, jeez, I have a few, haha. It's hard to choose. I'll only list three of my favorite covers.

Secondhand Serenade's cover of Animal by Neon Trees. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l21Nf3qE9UU
I don't know, the original song is great and very catchy, but when you look at the lyrics, I think Secondhand Serenade did it better. :/ When I listen to the Neon Trees version, it's beat sounds so happy and upbeat and clashes with the somewhat melancholy lyrics.

Next is Miser's cover of Zombie by the Cranberries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdbctjpSUsU
I love both songs but I just prefer the singer's voice in Miser over the Cranberries' singer. Meh.

And finally, Kelly Clarkson's "cover" (I put quotations because she technically bought the song) of Long Shot. I just find it hilarious when compared to how terrible the original version (Katy Perry's version) is. Lemme put a comparison here:
Kelly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz-c3lPe8l4
Katy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lnSZIG86kA

Dark Tranquillity covering Metallica's My Friend of Misery. Normally DT's singer has a wonderful smooth growl, but in this cover, he changed it up a bit and I was very impressed. He sounded like he was croaking out his last words, BUT, he still managed to avoid sounding hoarse, which is an extremely difficult combo to pull off.
