I usually don't except in the case of bob dylan because i think he's a great songwriter but I really don't like his voice except on everybody must get stoned. His voice is great for that one. lol

 I like tears for fears but i like the slower less busy sound of the cover it gives it a haunting feel that just moves me.

the original

cover

Anyway what songs do you actually like the cover better than the original?

I love nine inch nails but I agree with you on Johnny Cash. I think maybe the fact he was near the end of his life but his version of that song was so raw and emotional. It gave me chills the first time i heard it.

I like the other songs but didn't realise they were covers. lol

 Yeah I think the covers on the first 2 are more popular. Whit a little help from my friends was originally the Beatles and Me and Bobby Mcgee was Kris Kristopherson..it think

Placebo's version of "Running up that Hill" (original - Kate Bush). They made it darker and more visceral.

 This is an old one the original was in the 30's but Ray Charles owns this one.

I like limp bizkits version of Behind Blue Eyes. I like the original too but I like limp bizkits a little more. Pearl Jams Last Kiss is much better than the original. I agree with PP Hurt by Johnny Cash. There are more just can't think of them right now.

Oh I remember another. I prefer Alien Ant Farms Smooth Criminal to Michael Jackson's original version.

 I LOVE Elvis LOVE.... I normally do not like covers of his music. EVER! But I do like this one. I think because it is SO different from the original.

my mom was obsessed with these guys. We used to go on long car rides and we had the tape with this song on it and we would sing along. This song brings back memories.
