Cover

Unread post by Buzzard » Tue Mar 03, 2015 7:35 pm

We all know some cover bands or songs we love to hate .......

But some covers are as good as, or even better than the original.

This is strictly a matter of personal opinion, please share your favorite covers. ANYTHING GOES :wink:

Here's my first shot, Chuck Berrys Classic: Johnny B. Goode , metalized by Judas Priest. ((i))


Your bid ??

Peter

Well - I'll throw 'Black Betty' in here - performed by Ram Jam :wink:

It's a covered song, written by Hudson „Huddie“ William Ledbetter (1889 - 1949), aka 'Leadbelly'. I've never heard this song in it's original version, but to me the cover version by 'Ram Jam' seems to be the best... :mrgreen:

Zpink . you gotta know this one:

Black Ingvars - Du Gamla, Du Fria (Swedish national anthem)

Probably one of the best (to my ears) national anthems, but this version ROCKS ((i))

Yeah, I've heard Black-Ingvars' version.
It's a pretty pants national anthem though since Sweden isn't mentioned once! lol

For the softer touch, The Great Pretender, originally by The Platters, covered by Freddie Mercury.

I Love Rock'n'Roll

I used to think it was an original by Joan Jett ......


...... but I was WRONG :/:
The song was originally recorded and released by Arrows in 1975


I love both versions.

I actually knew that was a cover, but some songs really DO belong to another artist than the writer/composer.
'Come Together' for instance is an Aerosmith song... and I refuse to discuss that! :lol:

Here' another version claiming to be even older.


Nevertheless, here's the one that topped the charts in 1977, Ram Jam:

Thanks a lot for pointing that out! Very impressive to hear the 'Leadbelly' version - there are NO! instruments except handclaps... 8O

But as I said - it's the Ram Jam version I like most - just because of MORE GUITARS! :mrgreen:
