What song covers are better than the original song?
Personally, I think most of the time Glee makes a real good covers.
Song I have not heard a compelling cover? Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division

Share some... I want to hear good covers! :)

There's a band known as Breed 77 that do an excellent cover of The Cranberries' "Zombie"- check it out if you get the chance. It's not a "faithful cover"- it changes some things, including the overall demeanor of the song- but I enjoy it almost as much as the original.

Dope Stars Inc. do a cover of Billy Idol's "Shock to the System" that I can't get enough of, but that may be because it's a combination of my current favorite artist and one of my favorite songs.

I don't know if these are in line with your musical preferences (though Joy Division gives me hope :P), but I enjoy both of these.

Good idea for a thread. :)

Here're some of my favorites(I might split it up into several posts)

Dax Riggs - Country Roads (Original by John Denver)
Dax Riggs - Heartbreak Hotel (Original by Elvis Presley)
Dax Riggs - Yesterday (Original by The Beatles)(starting to see a pattern here...)
Metallica - Turn the Page (Original by Bob Seger)
Metallica - Astronomy (Original by Blue Öyster Cult)


There's more. I'll post more. But maybe not now. :)

I thought the Dum Dum Girls did an awesome job covering The Smith's There is a light that never goes out, their cover is one of my favorite songs ever..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrgKtFVKTmI

I loved Ellie Goulding's cover of Your song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_JZ-bdpInQ

Metallica's cover of Whiskey in the Jar:

Tori Amos redid "I'm not in love" so great...very dark sounding, creepy.
http://youtu.be/RD-v3ZpsoRM


Also Nirvana covered a lot of songs from Leadbelly (an old time blues singer...I love the blues)
Nirvana verse of "Where did you sleep last night"
http://youtu.be/mcXYz0gtJeM

The original from Leadbelly originally called "Black Girl"
http://youtu.be/a6yCEsDsGx4

LeadBelly is one of my favorite...many artists had cover his songs
Like "The House of the Rising Sun", redid by the Animals
http://youtu.be/bwAw9ThDQmk
And
Also "Black Betty" cover by Ram Jam
http://youtu.be/R044sleOW6I

If you don't mind a bit of alternative, Muse also did a cover of The House Of The Rising Sun. It's more of a rock-out! version.

Muse done some great covers

My favorite cover they did is Feeling Good by Nina Simone (blues singer)
here is Nina
http://youtu.be/CJA69C6SlRk
Muse redid version
http://youtu.be/leuMcRs983I


The song called "Gloomy Sunday" also known as the Suicide song (one of the 100 top mysteries to this day...there was this whole story behind the song) the short version was a fail musician named Reszo Seress and he finally made this song and it was a hit but tons of ppl kill themselves all over Europe and US after listening to it why they call it the suicide song.

here is Sarah Mclachian (and many other artist such as Emilie Autumn, Billie Holiday, ray charles and so on have cover it)
http://youtu.be/RSc2iNbZbio
Reszp Seress version (this is really old)
http://youtu.be/HAzJ_7CeWbc

Gary moore, i could suggset some of the songs:

The prophet
I love you more then you ever know
Flesh and blood
Trouble at home
One day
The messiah will come again
Still got the blues
ain't nobody
the understanding of awareness
Is bottom less,
But closely pay attention
To what it speak's,
Ignoring at price of repeating
Only deeper scar's
That it might not handle,
