Re: Covers Better Than The Original

Mariah Carey's rendition of "Open Arms" by Journey. I suspect that this will be an unpopular opinion.

One I totally forgot and though it has been mentioned, deserves it's own embed:

Spoiler for :
Came in here just to post that. Anyways, I think Buckley's version of Bob Dylan's 'Just Like A Woman' trumps the original. So much more emotion in his voice than Dylan's version.

Spoiler for :


Probably the best example of taking a song and giving new life to it is Nick Cave & The Bad Seed's take on The Velvet Underground & Nico's 'All Tomorrow's Parties'.

Spoiler for :


Gavin Mikhali totally killing the Death Cab For Cutie original.

Spoiler for :


It could be the huge Elliott Smith fanboy in me, but I've always preferred his unreleased take on 'Concrete Jungle' over Bob Marley's original.

Really? I thought their cover was OK but in no way better.

Re: Covers Better Than The Original

I know a lot of people are going to be all OMG GAY LIMP BIZKIT, but, fuck that noise, their version of Behind Blue Eyes is way better than The Who's.

I am not saying the original sucked dick at all, but, let's be real here. I know most people will dump on Bizkit because they 'suck', but, you can't even deny how much better their version is.

The Who




Limp Bizkit





I also like the Tea Party's version of Paint It Black.

Also, Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah trumps the Cohen original imo. There's another version which is even better but I forget who it was
ha, was coming in here to post that. Not that i think its better than the original, but i think she did a hell of a job with it.

Definitely prefer the original, but that cover feels more meaningful if that makes sense.

It's hilarious that you are so butthurt that you have to jump in to say it sucks just because I said it doesn't. If someone else said it, you wouldn't even comment on it.

It's really quite clear that LB did a much better job with the song without totally changing it. It still holds most of the original sound of it.

Learn to put your hate aside and respond to posts with honesty instead of anger because of who is posting it. Such an angry little boy.

I know I might get some flack for this but:

The Weeknd---Dirty Diana




Michael Jackson's original version




I prefer The Weeknd version better.
