Cover versions better than the originals

Recommended Posts

Probably a bit controversial and sacrilege in some quarters, but the first version of Dear Prudence I ever heard was the cover by Siouxsie And The Banshees. It's haunting and eerie, and while I do like the version on the Beatles White Album, this is the version I prefer.

The thing that strikes me about the original, is the bass playing of Paul. For me, stunning.

+1. Really brought to the fore in the 2018 remix IMO.
