Cover Versions - The Good The Bad & "I'm Going To Kill Them For This!"

RE: Cover Versions - The Good The Bad & "I'm Going To Kill Them For This!"
The Bjork version wins for me - never was a cover more apt for the singer.

How about this one, "She's The One"

Robbie Williams cover was pretty famous back in the day.





But here's the original by World Party.





If they sound so similar, that's because Robbie's backing band was largely made up of former World Party members. I was pretty impressed with the story behind why Robbie did the song (to bail Karl Wallinger out when he was critically ill without him feeling he was getting charity). Top bloke, for a Port Vale fan!

Oh my goodness, the video just came on TV - how will I ever remove the mental scars incurred from seeing One Direction boys cuddling the prime minister?! Sommie will surely be jealous!

I'm usually not a fan of covers, but I absolutely love this one. Even though the movie itself and go to hell and die!

Here's a famous one by the Everly Brothers.





What a pity that Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music's version blew it out of the water.

Same story for John Kongos. He may have been the first person to have a record with "samples" & the first major anti-apartheid hit song...





Unfortunately a fat Manchester junkie that thought he was hard until a roadie called Noel Gallagher floored him with one punch did it a lot, lot, lot better...





Twisting my melon man!

Hows about Bob Dylan versus Adele?

Because it's topical. SimsForums does current affairs. Biggrin











Or even, for maximum horror:






My poor ears!

I'm trump the ghastliness of the above with the campness of Klaus Nomi's version.

Jackie Lee's famous song "White Horses", from her own You Tube site.

It was butchered quarter of a century later by Morwenna Banks as her Little Girl character from the Channel 4 comedy "Absolutely".





I can't help but listen to this & think of Bjork! Biggrin

Came across another one. I think these are both OK.









As an aside, I did once wear blue velvet. I wouldn't generally recommend it.
