RE: Covers that are better than the original

Is the mask put over the head before or after you visit the Cyrus dealer?

RE: Covers that are better than the original

A few that spring to mind:

Johnny Cash - Hurt

The Gourds - Gin & Juice

Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah (I know, i'm sorry, but I think it's better)

Tim Buckley - Dolphins

Robert Wyatt - Shipbuilding

Nick Cave - Stagger Lee (not really a cover, but my favourtite verison of the many variations)

And i believe, that Because The night was a co-written song - so doens't really count, although I do agree that Smith's version IS better that the Springsteen version. 

Shaun Marin

Brand Manager - Bowers & Wilkins

RE: Covers that are better than the original

Im going to be controversial here...

 

Linkin Park > Adele   -   Rolling in the Deep

 

Although Adele has a remarkable voice,  I think Linkin Parks acoustic version from the 2011 iTunes festival has so much more heart to it.  Who would have thought someone so screamy and angsty to sing so pretty?

Huh, well I was about to say there's a new series of Red Dwarf on Dave starting tomorrow night at 9 (and in HD!) but that's kind of taken the wind out of my sails...

Getting back on topic, that reminds me. Nigel Planer did a cover of 'Hole in my shoe' which was pretty whacky.

Just watched it over on YouTube and I have to agree with you, excellent rendition.

Put a cover over a Cyrus amp and it looks better.  Put something over your head and...can you see where I'm going with this?

How do you expect him to see where you're going, he's got a big mask covering his face!
