ETA3: oh man, I got so excited to post, I didn't even make it to see your videos until after I posted mine. I effectively "copied", as my children would say lol.

I have to share two - I love the genre-bending aspect to both of these. The second maybe a bit on the "silly" side, though it was telling a true story around the NWA feud, so I can appreciate it, even in my old age.

The first, though, my God, the FEELING imparted to the song really brought the meaning behind the song home to me for the first time. I loved The Sound of Silence from the time I was a kid, but I with the Disturbed rendition...I just about can't even listen to the original.

ETA: I can't figure out how to do YouTube links on mobile ☆☆☆ETA2: I think I got it?! Let's see here...::types in silly reason for edit...press edit button aaaaaaand....::

1) The Sound of Silence - Disturbed -

2) Bi***** Ain't Sh** - Ben Fold's -


WOOHOO! It worked! (Taking a gamble here that it worked, otherwise I look like an idiot)

Hmmm, that didn't go as planned. A little help please?

It's Knocking on heavens door.

Guns and Roses took that song to another level.

The Johnny Cash version of "Hurt"
Origionally written by Trent Reznor and performed by his band Nine Inch Nails,
when he heard Johnny Cash's version Trent said something alog the lines of "That song is no longer mine."

Johnny made it his own.

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



This cover by Motorhead is awesome!!!!

Right artist, but wrong song.





It's said that the label didn't even want to release it, thinking Whitney was crazy to believe anyone would want to listen to a song with a full 45 seconds before any instrumental accompaniment joined the mix. LOL

Even Dolly acknowledges that the song will forever be Whitney's, and today many still don't realize or know that the song was originally written and performed by Dolly Parton.

Original version......


Best version......age 15!


Just like redmage post of Dolly Parton's song "I will always love you" Whitney made it her own...Lulu made Shout her 'signature' song.

Cyndia Lauper definitely turned this New Wave rock song into a pop anthem....
