GREAT COVERS OF YOUR FAVORITE SONGS

For many an original song that they love cannot and will not ever be duplicated by a cover, but there are many songs that have been done equally (debatebly) well by others..

So do you have favorites?

 

What are your favorite covers of favorite songs?

"Hurt"   9 Inch Nails cover by Johnny Cash

 

https://youtu.be/vt1Pwfnh5pc

 

IMHO, this cover towers over the original, because of the storyteller.

This is fabulous and I have to agree with you on the Cash cover!  One of the comments on the video was

" If Johnny Cash covers your song , its no longer your song!"

Absolutely the BEST cover in my 62+ years:

 

Simon and Garfunkel's The Sounds of Silence

Love, love, love this cover, he injects anger into this cover which is not as apparent in the original.

"And the people bowed and prayed

 to the neon god they made"

has special resonance for me today. :smileywink:

It's easy to see that E was having a lot of fun with that. He never took himself too seriously. He covered a lot of songs in a lot of genres, and many were hits. Blue Suede Shoes would have to be near the top of the list, I think.
