Cover songs that are actually good
Posted by Stephanie Doctrow
We all make fun of cover bands for being unoriginal, but sometimes an amazing cover can blow the original out of the water (All Along the Watchtower, Hendrix fans?)
Blender Magazine has a story about cover songs that are better than the originals. Some of these are ones you might not have heard of, and they are definitely worth checking out. My personal favorite is Elvis Costello’s cover of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful.” It’s amazing how two different voices can make one song sound so different!
