Original Version vs. Covers
#1
There have been probably thousands of songs that have been covered by multiple singers/groups over the years.

I love Simon and Garfunkel's A Hazy Shade of Winter, but I also quite like the 1987 cover by The Bangles. I don't like it better than the original, but I do like it a good deal.

Are there any covers that you think are equal or superior to the original versions?
In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.

I like Jimi Hendrix's cover of "All Along the Watchtower" and George Harrison's cover of "If Not For You".

Johnny Cash. "Hurt." That is all.

I prefer Linkin Park's cover of Rolling in The Deep over Adele's original... never heard many covers apart from that.

Hmmm I must say I love Thin Lizzy's Whiskey in the jar better than it's original by the Dubliners. I also love King of Twilight by Iron Maiden better than it's original by Nektar.
