I know all you wonderful people are fond of cover songs, and it made me wonder what some of your favourite cover songs are of all time!

I'm looking to expand my playlists a little bit, and eager to hear everyone's thoughts. If this thread gains some traction I'll mention some of my personal favourite covers. smile

My favourite covers are definitely not going to be your taste in any shape way or form, but you asked for them so here you go!

Ordinary World - Red (DuranDuran)
Unstoppable [Redux Version] - Red (Sia)
Enjoy the Silence - Anberlin (Depeche Mode)
Zombie - Bad Wolves (The Cranberries)

I actually have a really bad habit of listening to songs, not realizing they are covers, and then hunting down the originals.

Edit:

Although, I know you like Glass Animals. Not sure if you'll like Love Lockdown, but it's a Kanye West cover.

If I was to name just one I would say "All Along the Watchtower", written by Bob Dylan, covered by Jimi Hendrix.

Unchained melody, and Leanne Rimes is my all time favourite singing it.

Perfect for whinging old gits like me rofl

Since you asked for a favorite, I won't dither. "Sound of Silence" by Disturbed. I think it can be argued that it is better than the original Simon and Garfunkel version.

I'd have to agree with Sounds of Silence by disturbed.... and Hendrix All along the watch tower....

But my favorite cover is:

5FDP ( Five Finger Death Punch ) Bad Company. This is the tamer version fit for human consumption. Best served loud with headphones or a monster sound system with subwoofers that can register on the richter scale.

Some good suggestions here! Definitely a huge fan of what Johnny Cash did with Hurt - he truly made it his own. In my opinion, one of the strongest cover songs ever.

I always thought that Ambrosia did a pretty good cover of "Magical Mystery Tour", and of course Elton John's version of "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".

The album All This And World War II, from the supposedly awful movie I never saw, has some pretty good covers of Beatles songs by well known artists.

My personal favorite - DMC Walk this Way cover.
Not the best cover I ever heard by others, which seems to be the tilt of most responses. I took the question as which was MY favorite cover to play.


/Taking a little liberty of course .. add a thumb/pop bass to this version and it was a blast to play .. kinda gave it a new twist that seemed well received whenever we played it.

If we are restricted to covers we've heard done by others, Fire (Springsteen's song) is an obvious omission so far, any version by whoever, really .. including Bruce <grin>

great songs can be done many ways, but we know the song

Who hasn't covered "Bridge Over Troubled Water?"
Roberta Flack's version gets my vote.

A song that has MANY covers! Here are the ones I love:
Panic! At The Disco <--Saw this live in concert, awesome! Lead singer played on a grand piano that was elevated in the middle of the floor seats up about 20 feet!
Puscifer
The Muppets


Also, just saw Queen/Adam Lambert in Nashville a few weeks ago. Best show I've seen in a while. Adam's been with them 8 years already and has an awesome voice. If you have a chance to see them, do it! You won't regret it.

I was not expecting THAT at all. RESPECT!

Even Queen doesn't do the center part of that song live. Oh yeah, it's in the show but the lights dim and it's obviously being played from a track. A case of smoke and mirrors....

Pink nailed the song and the center part was immaculately done.... live on stage. She's got almost as much on stage swagger as Freddy.
