Best/Favorite Cover Songs
« on: November 24, 2020, 10:11:02 pm »
We did this on 2004, and again in 2007, so it's been a while. What are some great versions of songs not by the credited writer?

I listen a lot to the Bird and the Bees tribute album to Hall and Oates

Wonderful stuff

Greg Kurstin of course has a parallel career as one of musicís bigger songwriters...

I have been meaning to get their tribute  to Van Halen

In that case, I will answer.

The greatest cover, of all time in the history of music is:

Sid Vicious  -  "My Way."

The, end.

can confirm.  I love the rock n roll swindle, underrated gem

I particularly love the Johnny B Goode/Road Runner  cover
where he asks Paul to shout out how Roadrunner starts (after he requests them to play it)

this might not be the best sounding cover (although her voice is eerily similar to stevie's) but it is the most visually appealing... talk about winning the genetic lottery.

Fleetwood Mac - Dreams (imy2 Cover)

they've got plenty of other covers on YT, just pick one, doesn't matter...
