I was listening to ANOTHER cover song/remix of a song I love, but did not enjoy it again. I was with my mum at the time. We started talking about how few songs there are, that we enjoy, that are covers or remixes. So I thought that I would post my Top 5 of what I consider to be the “best”. Mainly because I don’t have many, lol.
In no particular order…
Couldn’t have a list about covers and remixes without this one, I like it more than the original:
“Got My Mind Set on You” was the last song by a Beatle to top the Billboard Hot 100, but the song itself wasn’t actually written by a Beatle. It was written by Rudy Clark in 1962, and it was James Ray’s jazzy version that Harrison encountered during a (pre-Beatlemania) visit to the US in 1963. More than two decades later, an off-the-cuff remark from “Dream Weaver” singer Gary Wright about “Got My Mind Set on You” recalled the older song to Harrison.
And my newest favourite!
