Best cover versions

181 posts in this topic

One of my favourite cover versions is Walk On By by the Stranglers.

:biggrin:

 

I used to set a music quiz in my local a few years back. One night I told the gathered participants that I was going to play two versions of the same song and wanted to know who the artists were. I hinted that they might find it difficult as both versions were very similar. I then played about a minute of Dionne Warwick's version followed by about a minute of the Stranglers' cover.

I was listening to Melanie's version of Ruby Tuesday last night, better than the original IMO.  Also the Beatles version of "Words of Love" is IMO superior to the Buddy Holly original.  Worst cover version I've ever heard is the Carpenters' version of Please Mr Postman.  Sung pat, and totally without the passion both the Beatles and the Marvelettes put into it.
