Any songs that you enjoy the cover more than the original?

I love RevCo's version of Do Ya Think I'm Sexy much more than Rod Stewart's.

  • I love Hole's cover of "Gold Dust Woman". I mean geez, it's hard to say I like it better than Stevie Nicks singing, but I think I do. How about "Higher Ground", RHCP version over Stevie Wonder? And Echo & the Bunnyman did a fantastic rendition of "People Are Strange". I like covers a lot of the time. It's interesting to me to hear another artist's take on a song.

  • Turn the Page, the Metallica version is much better than the Bob Segar version IMO.

  • Yep. Pressure drop, I like it better by the specials rather than the original by toots and the maytals.

  • Almost any cover of Hallelujah is better than the original by Leonard Cohen. And I really like Hurt by Johnny Cash over the Nine Inch Nails original.

  • Boyz N The Hood by Dynamite Hack.....This song cracks me up, and I think it's so much better than Eazy E.

    Dancin' Days by STP(I think)....I really LOVE Led Zeppelin, but I'd rather hear this version of that song.

    Careless Whisper by Seether....Love it, and I don't really care for Wham's version.

    I'm sure there are more that I'm not able to think of right now.
