Good Cover Versions of a Favourite Song

Not sure it is possible to do good songs to death on the forum… but guess we will find out eh!
It is a good chance to give the lesser known artists a wider audience.
Two good covers above, from two of the best songwriters, Bob Dylan and the Grandmaster of imagery, Mr. Leonard Norman Cohen.

Aretha’s cover of ‘Respect’ by Otis Redding wasn’t bad

HZ… Obviously if the original song is known to us, then the cover can be compared…
It is just a chance to highlight some cover artists, we may, or may not have heard of before, offering up a really good interpretation in their own style is all of a particular song… :+1:
See Flobs selection above as a good indicator, or even the street busker at the top singing Dylan
You choose whatever you think is worthy of an interpretation

You’re the one that I want. Original by John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. Cover by The Beautiful South.

Love when a cover is done that makes it something different instead of just a bad re-release of the same song, eg anything covered by Westlife!

Live and Let Die.

For me this is probably the greatest cover. Absolutely turned it up to 11!

The 12" version of this with “Where did our love go” is awesome.
