Agreed!

This is a double cover - Whiskey in the Jar (traditional Irish folk song)

This Irish folk song became well known in the 60's as recorded and performed by The Dubliners. It's been covered by just about every band in Ireland since.

 

Thin Lizzy transformed the song in 1973 into a classic rock hit that forever belongs to them. They played it at every concert. Fastforward to 1998, Metallica covers Thin Lizzy with their metal version, which remains on their set list to this day. They won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock performance in 2000.

 

I really like both versions. It's great fit for Metallica and James Hetfield's voice, but the song is all Thin Lizzy's, and forever classic rock. Here are clips of both versions. Thin Lizzy from 1973 and Metallica from Ireland just days ago.

It was OK. He did a verse and a chorus, a guitar lick, then stopped. Decent professional studio back up rendition. They made a big deal out it though, and that's what matters on those shows. Judges reaction.
It didn't make me forget John Lennon's lead vocal. Sorry guys, with all due respect, I don't agree.

I looked it up on YT, and he was really good. Beatle songs are covered a lot. Some are well done, and others, not so much.  To The Beatles credit, their songs are singable, memorable, and known by everyone on the planet! Smiley Very Happy

Good, professional replication. The girl has a Karen Carpenter style vocal, the guy sounds like a Jonas brother. I glad the young musicians are picking up this material. Certainly no one of their generation are writing this kind of material. I commend them for that. It doesn't have Reggie's vocal dynamics, but a very pleasant, professional replication.

This is another cover that I just happened on to. I'm not familiar with either artist, but they make a fine pairing, and harmonies are spot on. This is an Elton John cover, and like many of his songs, lends itself well to harmonizing vocals.

Yes, it is quite a stretch!  I would never have imagined an Eagles’ song turned into metal music. This cover is more about the reinterpretation of an iconic song by an artist who takes it to a different genre that I think is fascinating.
