Cover Song

Come on, let’s be honest here. We’re in a safe space. Are there covers you prefer over the originals? I don’t know about the rest of you, but the radios keep playing reboot of classic songs. While they’re fine remakes, they play like ALL the time. We make bets at our work when the radio stations will play them.

So when I say prefer a cover over an original, it doesn’t mean you don’t like the original. Just, you might like a cover that little bit better. All the ones on the radio, I actually don’t like, lol. They’re fine, but these remixes encourage no originality, whatsoever.

Here a few of my favourite covers: Again, I like all the originals, just fine, I just prefer these ones a little more.

Sorry, lol…I cry at this version.

The Best of the best of the best of the best … cover songs

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:


Disturbed

PTXofficial
Jonathan Young

George Harrison

“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!
