    Just came back in from working with a few more I had thought of... and looks like others had already posted 2 of them (Hurt and Zombie)
    Hurt I've always found slightly funny with who covered who, because if I randomly told you that there were 2 artists, 'Nine Inch Nails' and 'Johnny Cash', most likely everyone would assume NIN covered Cash, but in reality its the other way around.
    It was so sad when Bad Wolves released Zombie and we heard what happened.



    Here's another Nightwish cover:

    Over The Hills & Far Away by Gary Moore:

    (not to be confused by the Led Zep song of the exact same name, completely different lyrics)

    The Misfits did a whole album of 1950's covers. Quite a few good covers on it, then quite a few bad ones too lol. My 2 favourite covers from that album would be Dream Lover and This Magic Moment.

    Dream Lover by Bobby Darin
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzkE...=youtu.be&t=45

    I actually really like both, so hard to choose, but might rank The Misfits cover as like only 1% higher.

    If listened to back to back, some people would probably think the 80s one is the cover.. This is one where the cover is heaps better than the original and is just a more touching and powerful song.

      I like the original,
      He hasn't but he tends to do that in some songs.

        The Man Who Sold The World - David Bowie



        Nirvana.

        Whilst I like Bowie's version I think Nirvana's is vastly more relatable

          Shivers

          Original - The Boys Next Door featuring a babyfaced Nick Cave. Fantastic lyrics and tune from Rowland Howard written when he was 16 and a member of The Charlatans. Then went on to join The Boys Next Door with Nick Cave. Caves voice doesn't really do this song justice imo. The band then changed their name to The Birthday Party. Howard and Cave fought and Howard left the band with them renaming themselves The Bad Seeds with Cave's "modesty" changing it to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.



          The Screaming Jets belted this one out of the park and is easily my favourite

                So I have a cousin who was born about the time of release and her brother sang both this and 2 Kenny Rogers songs when she was married...It was always a good song but this added memories. What timing with Kenny Just passing....

                My view is that the Pentatonix version is crap....
                Dolly is Dolly and always will be...Great song....
                I do like the Miley version a little better however,
                The White Stripes is more my vibe......Give it a listen but turn that Fuc#er right up.......

                Keen to hear you thoughts...
                Yeah we lost Kenny yesterday or the day before ... my father used to play me his music and the Beach Boys whilst my mother played me Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull and Yes and Hendrix. He was a drinker and she was just happy a lot.

                  Tainted Love

                  Original by Gloria Jones in 1964

                  I find it hard to pick my favourite between these two. Both versions are the epitome of their respective times so suit the era they were released in. I probably lean marginally towards Soft Cell's version only because it formed a part of my childhood memories.

                    Cats in the Cradle

                    Original by Harry Chapin - Not bad but afflicted by the decade of its release and the folksy delivery.



                    Ugly Kid Joe nailed this one. Problem is it was that popular that radio airplay overplayed and killed it. Still a banger to listen to occasionally and easily my favourite of the two.

                      Not a MM fan generally but I like this version.
