This should be fun, since ATS is comprised of people with a variety of different tastes. Post a cover song, that in your opinion, is better than the original. Also, if you could, post the original, so people can compare the two.

I'd have to agree that the cover for me is better than the original in your post.

May get some flak for this but here is my humble addition to the thread...





The backstory of the cover is kinda heartbreaking....

Elton John, hands down, in my opinion...

Great cover choice.


Have you seen the Russian girl perform the Zombie song? I'll see if I can find it.

Meanwhile, here's mine.

Original; Bobby Womack; If You Think You're Lonely Now.



Cover; K-Ci of Jodeci.




I like K-Ci's version as he has the same raspy and yelling singing style, but his voice is much more powerful. The music is also sped up a little bit.

I was in Dubai at the Irish Village and got to see a guy do an Irish Folk cover of All along the Watchtower. It was pretty awesome.

I like Jeffery Foucault's rendition of Lodi better than CCR's. And that's saying a helluvalot!

Bowie's great and all, but his voice always annoyed me. Motorhead doing his tune? Excellent.
