Remakes as good or better than the original.

Great tribute with a ton of talent. Jeff Lynn's voice is perfectly haunting and Prince just blows it up.


I love nirvana but this is just a whole different thing, kinda had to let it digest...but wow what a remake.

Blackberry Smoke-You Got Lucky (Tom Petty)

Shooter Jennings-Walk of Life (Dire Straits)

Bad Wolves-Zombie (The Cranberries)

Five Finger Death Punch-Bad Company (Bad Company)

I like Turn the Page by Metallica too, but I don't necessarily think it's better than the original.

In turn, Nirvana did a pretty powerful rendition of Lead Belly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night," on MTV's Uplugged (Cobain's version really intensifies, from the 2:39 mark on):



Lead Belly - Where Did You Sleep Last Night (1939)

Johnny Cash's version of this Nine Inch Nails song is all the more poignant considering both Johnny and his wife, June, passed away soon after the song was recorded and the video was filmed.

Seems that Shiny Toy Gun’s 2009 version of “Major Tom (Coming Home)” allowed a whole new generation to enjoy Peter Schilling’s original song:

Have to admit that Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” lends itself well to Dwight Yoakam’s genre, and I’m not even a fan of country music:



Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love (1980)



Plus, many don’t even know that Gary Jules’ “Mad World” is actually a 1982 song by Tears for Fears:



Tears for Fears - Mad World (1982)

This thread really begins and ends with Jimi Hendrix version of All Along the Watchtower. After that I do like the above Johnny Cash version of Hurt as the emotion of a guy dying really takes the song up a few notches. I always though the Clash did a great job of catching the energy of I Fought the Law>


I also liked the groove the Talking Heads put down for Take Me to the River.

All said, the "Johnny Trash" version of "Hurt" with it's video - if you already know the basic story of his life - has got to be the most moving 4 minutes of sound and light put forth as "entertainment" I've ever experienced.

It's an incredible capper for a long career that careened in and out of the ditch.

Got a ton of this stuff, lol.

1968’s Tommy James & The Shondells inspired two well-known covers: 1981’s “Crimson & Clover” by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and 1969’s “I’m Alive” by Johnny Thunder.



Tommy James & The Shondells - Crimson & Clover (1968):



Johnny Thunder - I'm Alive (1969)



Tommy James & The Shondells - I'm Alive (1968)



Probably the best instrumental version of The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind” (1988) is Maxence Cyrin’s 2009 piano cover:



The Pixies - Where Is My Mind (1988)



Think I might like U2’s 1989 version of “Dancing Barefoot” better than Patti Smith’s original 1979 song:



Patti Smith - Dancing Barefoot (1979)

Probably half of Zeppelin's tunes count as covers.

Another solid cover is Katy Perry covering Sarah Braeilles Brave.

Do you have that Robert Johnson CD set ? All his recordings remastered and boxed up ?

Led Zep, Stones, Clapton, etc all copied him. Basically a Curtis Lowe.

Although there’s been much confusion over who actually authored the song, Hey Joe, I believe the first to release it was The Leaves in 1966, followed by Jimi Hendrix that same year. Prefer Hendrix’s version, although The Leaves’ version is pretty cool, too:



The Leaves - Hey Joe (1966)

Lots of great stuff, some I didn't realize were remakes... (hey joe) and I swear I didn't just cry listing to Whitney.

Best remake of a great nursery rhyme IMO. I'll bet his first grade teacher is proud when watching this one, "I taught him that song"... watched this live front row 1987...

Does anyone even know the Gloria Jones original 1965 version of “Tainted Love,” which Soft Cell covered in 1981?



Gloria Jones - Tainted Love (1965):



IMO, The Beatles (and Ferris Bueller) did “Twist and Shout” (1963) better than The Isley Brothers did in 1962:



The Isley Brothers - Twist and Shout (1962):



Again, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts were more famous for “I Love Rock ‘n Roll” (1981) than the original 1975 artists, The Arrows:



The Arrows - I Love Rock 'n Roll (1975):



The Ramones’ “Do You Wanna Dance?” (1977) is a cover of Bobby Freeman’s 1958 original song:



Bobby Freeman - Do You Wanna Dance? (1958):
