Cover songs better than the actual...!
    #5008529 - 12/03/05 12:07 AM (15 years, 10 months ago)

I made this post because for awhile I thought Colin James covering "Into the Mystic" was a lot better than the original.

But after much consideration and comparision... no way.. Van Morrison is king! He will take back the throne thank you very much!


what about ye?

Marilyn Mansons Sweet dreams much better then eurythmics original. Stevie ray vaughn's little wing over hendrix, but its a close one.

I like nine inch nails cover of dead souls better than joy division's original and sinead o'conner's "Nothing Compares 2 U" comes off more heartwrenching than Prince's although I bow down to Prince in all else.

nirvana's "jesus don't want me for a sunbeam was better than the vaselines, their cover of David Bowie's "man who sold the world", was pretty neck & neck with the origional.

Metallica's tuesday's gone was better than skynard.

The mulon rougue version of "olie buco......", ( i don't know the name ),
was better a lil than the origional, and i do not remember who the origional artist was.

Sid Vicious doing "my way", lol , almost better than Sinatra, lol, possibly

In 1987 a punk band out of California called MIA released an album with a cover of "California Dreaming" on it. It blew away the Mama's & The Papa's!

Hendrix's version of Watchtower

All of Yonder Mountain's covers of Willie Nelson tunes (particularly Bloody Mary Morning and Good Hearted Woman) are nice. In fact all of Yonder's covers are top notch. You ought to hear them do Crazy Train or Pink Floyd's Dogs.

Of all the versions of Cortez I've heard, Neil's is my favorite--easily better than DMB's version, in my opinion.

People may hate me for this, but I think Cortez the Killer by Built to Spill is better than the original.

Don't get my wrong, I'm a Neil Young fan, I just like this version more. Probably because it sounds pretty similar, but is a lot longer, and of higher sound quality.




this is the first song i thought of when i saw the title.

i like both versions but i'd probably agree with you.. mainly because it's longer. built to spill and neil young are both amazing though.

i think iron and wine's cover of Such Great Heights by the postal service is better than the original.

Good post.

All along the Watchtower - Hendrix (Dylan)
Hurt - Johnny Cash (NIN)
Little Wing - SRV (Hendrix)
With a Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker (the Beatles)
No Quarter - Tool (Led Zep)

That's all I can think of right now, but I know there are more.
