Best Cover Song


I love listening to cover songs from other well known bands tributing/stealing other famous bands. Just wondering if anyone else had a covered song that really pleased them more than the original version.

This will be unknown to many but I love April Wines version of Bad Side of the Moon which is a cover of Elton John's song



Also I love Noel Gallagher's version of Help! originally performed by the Beatles

Faith No More always did the greatest cover songs.

It only goes up to your knees,

I always love the original covers to begin with, but for some reason cover songs just make me appreciate the original so much more

Rocket man - Kate Bush (Elton John)
Little Girl Blue - Janis Joplin (Nina Simone)
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley (Leonard Cohen)
I drove all night - Cindi Lauper (Roy Orbison)
Hurt - Johnny Cash (Trent Reznor)

I also really like Muse's version of Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want by The Smiths - but I wouldn't say it pleased me more than the original. I do like how they sing it with such loud desperation as opposed to the original version which conveys a more genteel quiet pleading.

I'd never heard Hurt by Johnny Cash before. Wow.

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

I usually don't prefer a cover over the original, but these are two covers that outshine the originals in my opinion.
