Great Covers of Great Songs

It takes something special to meet or exceed a classic song with a cover version...

He is soooo overlooked as a great musician. I have thrown his name out in that context to people before and they are like "huh, prince??"

Unfortunately people can't see beyond his act to see how good he really is as a musician.

Prince is by far one of the greatest musicians of this era. I don't like him, and Jesus Christ is he weird, but a hullva an artist.

Spent a lot of summertimes staying with my cousins out in Ca. while growing up, Huntington Beach, Ventura. Lynch was pretty popular at the time and seemed to pop up everywhere. There are a lot of good musicians out there but he's good. I've met him several times over the years and the guy seems very humble and acts like he'll hang out all day if you want. He doesn't mind giving tutorials to anyone interested and has some great lessons available to all. Check out his guitar on the Navarro clip.

Gary Jules' cover of Mad World is great. Much better than the original from Tears for Fears.

The video is great, too. Makes me want to jump off that building and take out some of those kids on the way to Hell.

Hardly the best cover of that song. Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris owned that one and Charley Pride did a decent version. For a song that has been covered ad infinitum, you could have come up with a far better version.

Great thread!

I'm both an Ozzy/Sabbath fan and a King Crimson fan, so I was skeptical of this, but I think the Ozz did a fair job at it:



And of course my favorite prog rock trio did a cover album a few years back:

I haven't looked at this thread in forever, but I'm glad you posted that. IMO, it's way better than the original. More haunting.
