Randy Newman's version of his song, "Guilty," is good, but Joe Cocker nails it.

Billy Hitte once recorded a song called "The Fite of the Smth Eng", a slow balland paying tribute to the lost. The new version by Olif Spear is a LOT better! That FM station that I hear the newscasts play that song once in a while!

I don't know where "Wind Beneath My Wings" came from, but the first time I ever heard it was by Sheena Easton...  and I fell in LOVE with that song.  I absolutely can't stand what Bette Midler did to it.

Trying again, my Kindle keeps changing Dolly Parton to Patton. Dolly Parton originally wrote "I Will Always Love You." Sorry for the typo.

Guns & Roses "knocking on hevens door", way better than the original by Dylan, Guns & Roses " Sympathy for the Devil", a step above the Rolling Stones version, Guns & Roses "Live and let die", read once that Paul McCartney did not like the version.

One of my favorites is "I Will Always Love You" originally by Dolly Patton. However, when Whitney Houston remade it in the movie, "The Bodyguard" she sent to the galaxy! Many radio stations continue to play this timeless love song!

I like almost everything Port Chuck has covered better than the originals.

Johnny Cash’s cover of Trent Reznor’s song “Hurt.” I read that when Reznor heard Cash was going to cover the song, he wasn’t pleased. After he heard Cash’s version, he completely understood why Cash wanted to sing it. Cash brought an emotional level seldom heard in modern music. The aching pain in his voice could bring tears to your eyes. Just stunningly beautiful.
