Okay, I thought this would be a fun Music Board topic.  Basically, following the person above you, agree, or disagree with whether their Cover was better than the original or not.  And then post a new video of a Cover song that you think is better than the original.  And link the original following it.

I'll start.  I think Iron Maiden's cover of "Doctor Doctor" is better than the original by UFO.
IRON MAIDEN COVER:     
UFO ORIGINAL: 


Procedure:  Next Person, Agree, or Disagree with my choice.  Then post 2 videos, a cover, and then the original.  And then repeat.
Rule 1:  The same song can be used for different posts BUT the cover must be done by a different band.
Rule 2:  Any genre is allowed.
Rule 3:  Feel free to state your opinion about posts other than the one above you, but to post a new listing of songs you need to respond to the one above.
Rule 4:  The cover doesn't have to be well known or professional.  It can be done by an amateur group, or single person if you like.

Don't be discouraged if the songs listed aren't to your fancy, because some will be, and some wont.

Agreed, Johnny Cash is win.

Ok so mine is All Along the Watchtower by Bob Dylan.

I won't bother putting videos up, because I can't find one this sung by him, and it is one of the most covered songs of all time.

It has been notably covered by:
-Hendrix
-Pearl Jam
-Grateful Dead
-Dave Matthews Band
-U2

And many others, but I think most covers are better than the original.

Man, there's so many great covers of that song, Pendragon2! Agree?!? Haha.

How about a mashup that's better than all of the originals?! Well, except for Jason Mraz. He's most def. one of my favs! Give it up for DJ Earworm for an awesome mashup! YEAH!



There's way too many original videos to post. lol. Tongue

There can only be 1 original, unless that a is a montage  Smiley

I believe Nazareth's version of Love Hurts is better than the original by The Everly Brothers.

Have to agree that the cover is better than the original. I never liked Outkast very much.
Now for something a little different...German rap.

Original by Die Fantastischen Vier:

Then the cover by Oomph!:

Big Yellow Taxi. The counting crows/ Vanessa Carlton is a lot better in my opinion.
