I seriously doubt anyone will agree with me, but this is one of mine;



So much more raw emotion than the original, don't lynch me.

Anyway, what are yours? Sorry, I realise we've probably had this topic before.

Stereophonics-Handbags and Gladrags

I can also never decide which Valerie I like more. The Zutons or Mark/Amy. I like both for different reasons.

No one's Hello is better than Adele's - it's about HER father for starters. Just like no one's Listen is better than Beyonce's!!

I ave TONNES of examples of this, if I don't like the original artist but like the song I'll just prefer it, like there are lots of Glee covers I like more than their originals laugh.gif

None immediately spring to mind but I'm sure there are some.

(Are Torn & Kiss Kiss covers? Love both of them anyways)

Given that he's on Strictly at the moment, I may as well mention this one by Rev Richard, alongside Jimmy Sommerville -



This is an interesting one, as although it was originally written for Meat Loaf, it was recorded by Pandora's Box & more famously by Celine Dion before he recorded his version with Marion Raven. It's my favourite version of "It's All Coming Back To Me Now".

It's kinda like a rite-of-passage when someone finds out 'Torn' is indeed a cover lawl

Goldfrapp's rendition of Olivia Newton-John's 'Physical' sprung to mind (which they renamed 'U.K. Girls (Physical)') for me here (king & queen of lush production!) but I've literally just found out that it's only the chorus they took from that song, the verses are presumably their own original work.

I tend to rarely prefer covers, but I adore the vocal on this.

Although the original version by GoNorthToGoSouth isn't that bad, Pink's version is better, one of my favourite Pink songs wub.gif
