Your favourite covers

Recommended Posts

Covers which you think are almost as good as the original :)


I like the following three:


1. Lily Allen's cover of Keane's 'everybody's changing' ( I don't particularly like lily's music, but I liked this version of Keane's song)

2. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'

3. A cover of Muse 'Map of the problematique'

What are yours?

Of course there's Hallelujah, and then :


Placebo's cover of Bigmouth Strikes Again is quite good, i like it a lot.

Muse's Feeling Good is OK, as well as Can't Take My Eyes Of You

The Mars Volta's Things Behind The Sun and Memories kick ass.


And I'm not very fond of Muse's House Of The Rising Sun : i think it sounds a little too brutal, given the mood of the lyrics, plus he chose to sing The Animals' lyrics, when everybody knows Dylan's ones are a billion times better.

Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' is so amazing!!

Jeff's covers are all amazing.... This man was a god.


Here's his cover of Edith Piaf's song 'J'en connais pas la fin'... Simple, beautiful and moving...

If it don't bring tears in your eyes, you're heartless :laugh3:

I don't like the intro but it becomes really good, although I still prefer the original.

I'm a big SP fan and this is a very different version of one of thier most well known songs which a lot of people have said is terrible, but I think shes done her own thing with it and put effort in and I like it.

I love Radiohead's cover of The Headmaster Ritual by the Smiths.

Everyone said it sucked though. Maybe I just like the song and the band too much to be able to agree even if it was true...
