"Born To Lose"
    #1142335 - 12/15/02 06:56 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Many many music artists have covered the song "Born To Lose". I've never heard the song, but it seems to have some kind of legendary status in rock history.

So many legendary singers or bands have done this song that it made me want to ask where it came from.

Who originally wrote "Born To Lose"?

Who made it famous?

Why do so many artists cover this song?

Where did you find that?

Ray Charles made that song famous?? That's strange considering guys like Johnny Cash, Johnny Thunders, Sid Vicious and Motorhead did the song.

Today being the first time I've heard the song, I think many bands have played it because the musicians themselves love it.  It sounds fun to play and I bet that musicians can probably relate to the lyrics as well as, if not better than others. 

To me it's some what of a celebratory song almost. 
It's about accepting "loser"-hood and then getting on with life. ("And now, I'm losing you..." - it was inevitable, so fuck it!)

Listeneing to the original and then the Social Distortion and Bouncing Souls(both rock) versions gave me that opinion. 
Elton John's version seemed to be milking the "blue" side of the tune a bit. 

As for which one I like best, it's a toss up between Ray Charles and Ray Price(country)  :blush: :smirk: ...there's probably better ones I haven't heard yet.
