Covers performed better than the original......


Recommended Posts

On my way to Van Gaalens this morning I was listening to a great compilation album I"ve got, Rolling Stone's greatest 500 songs of all time and this track came on 


Johnny Cash:- I walk the line


I much prefer this version by Live



so I was wondering which covers do you reckon are better than the original?

Personally I feel that very few covers are better than the original.

Take Careless Whisper as an example, a cheesy 80's hit but still a nice tune and then Seether came and made it something listenable to a new generation of music fans.


Ryan Adams covering Wonderwall, now that to me betters the original, but then I am a big Ryan Adams fan and I love an acoustic set.

If I had to choose a cover that betters the original it would have to be this.
