Cover versions better than the originals

Recommended Posts

How about this one. I almost thought anything could beat the original but I’m not so sure now. This cover is really messed up. Laughing my head off at how bad this is 😂😂

Can’t believe the original got 45million hits. Did they employ someone at the record company to permanently keep clicking on it on YouTube.

Nina did loads of great covers - this is one of  my favourites - think Bowie chose to base his version on this after meeting her

Take a slightly trashey chart song and mix it up by a great DJ and you get this, which is better than the original for me;

Carrying on with the Kinks vs. Beatles thread...

Unfortunately, no youtube versions that are any good. You need to buy the album if you can find it, but you won't regret it.

801 Live, and the version of You Really Got Me.

And of course. Even dear Leonard approved of this one:

Oh no... the Renaissance Mix features again - Soooo much better than the poop of the original.  

To me, it rocks at 3:30-4:45

AND NOW... the crappy original
