Best cover you've heard?

Recommended Posts

I don't listen to covers , once I've heard a song once it's not original anymore and twice is too much :)

For some reason I love every cover I've ever heard of "hurt so bad"

Keeping on the Robert Wyatt theme above , this is a great take on a Nile Rogers / Edwards song

Absolute tosh. Next you'll be saying Adele's version of To Make You Feel My Love is better :o

The great thing about most Dylan covers is they are always very different from his versions , so you've got options

Have a listen to this guy,if you've not already heard of him.Him and his bassist do acoustic covers of nearly everything.He has one of the best voices I've heard in years.This is a great cover of Toto's 'Africa'

Posted before (a fews years back). A couple of friends of mine had a nice little project. A band called 'Skuffle'.
Unfortunately Bass player Steve McManus passed away three years ago.

YES covering S&G's America.

Speaking of prog bands covering songs called America, The Nice did a very capable version of America from West Side Story.

The Third Degree covering Duffy's Mercy. I love a bit of Northern Soul.
[/quote]

That's exactly what I was going to suggest. When I listen to it the song makes me feel like the Third Degree version must be an obscure original early 70s track which Duffy found in a second hand shop and covered!

P.S. the singer on this isn't the cool dude in the video but the beardie folkish, singer songwriter from Hampshire, Jon Allen.

This bloke... good singer!

Easy one for me, 80s German synth combo Propaganda's version of Scottish indie band Josef K's 'Sorry for laughing' , included on their epic Secret Wish album

Although not original or much different, i really like the Phil X cover videos. Not bad for a 3 piece. Love the bass tones.

Thin Lizzie covered 'Whiskey in the Jar' in the early 1970s and it has rarely been bettered.

I'd largely agree with that - although Metallica's cover of the same song is, for me, the go-to version

Other notable covers would be The Slits version of Heard it Through The Grapevine...

...and this surprisingly good version of an AC/DC classic.
