Favorite Cover Tunes?
« on: December 22, 2006, 03:32:23 PM »

Sonic Youth did a cover of The Carpenter's Superstar that I always liked. Deftones' covers of The Smiths' Please Please Please Let Me Get What I want and The Cure's If Only Tonight We Could Sleep are pretty good too.

Probably my favorite cover is the Mighty Mighty Bosstones' version of Detroit Rock City.

Oddly enough, I've never been a big fan of "covers".  I think 'write your own damn music.'  If I like a song, I usually associate too much with the artist I first heard do it.
(granted, I know I've heard songs that without knowing, were covered by bands, and then later, I find out ...yada yada.)

I'm having trouble even coming up with some.

Old standby:  GnR does  Knockin'....and live they do American Band, and Mama Kin(sp?)

There is a band called QuietDrive that remade Lauper's Time after Time.

I mention Sonic Youth doing The Carpenters and you think you're the one who's going to be smited?

Your post reminds me when my friend bought a Best of Joe Jackson album (this was, I think, last year mind you) and he so excited about Jackson's version of "that Anthrax song Got the Time." The look on his face when I broke the news was pretty priceless.

I also like the Sonic Youth version of Superstar.

The first one that comes to mind right now is Gary Jules doing the Tears for Fears song, Mad World.


One cover that a lot of people seem to like is Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt, but I much prefer the original.  This quote from wikipedia kind of saddened me.

Quote
In an interview with Alternative Press, Reznor admitted that when Rubin first asked if Cash could cover his song, he was "flattered" but worried that "the idea sounded a bit gimmicky." The power of Cash's cover didn't fully hit Reznor until he saw the video:

    I pop the video in, and wow… Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps… Wow. I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore. … It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. [Somehow] that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning—different, but every bit as pure. [1]

Reznor still occasionally refers to "Hurt" as "a song that isn't mine anymore."

LOL exactly.  I'm not sure I've ever heard Sonic Youth.  (or did, and didn't know)

.......and I don't know how many times I've said "that's a Beatles song?"

I don't know if it counts, but I like/submit Manfred Mann/Springsteen "Blinded by the light".

Makes no difference to me. Don't Know

Actually, it's interesting, if you look at the names at the bottom of http://www.golfdiscussions.com/yabbse/index.php
there's at least a dozen FGIers online over there.
