PostPosted: Sun Mar 15, 2020 8:43 pm    Post subject: That's My Cover!!!

I've been meaning to try this for awhile. So given the current climate and the desire for a distraction, I figured I'd finally get off my ass rather than be one and do so.

While we have a Jams thread going, you can never have too many music threads going, so let's start one for cover songs.

Post a cover song that you dig. Hopefully it's something that bends the original genre or otherwise transcends simply reproducing the original, but what very you got is cool.

My choice to start it off is a cover of one of the pieces of music that sucked me into rock music in an way that found me addicted for life. As young kid in the early 70's, I managed to discover the little corner of of my Dad's music collection that was not the mountains of classical that he had collected. In that corner was Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's "Deja Vu" and The Who's "Who's Next". I spent weeks devouring those albums through my Dad's stereo with the headphones on. It was all captivating, but one piece rose to the top, and here it is in a very different rendition:

Ghost of Paul Revere - Baba O'Riley

Hope we have more great covers to follow. In the meantime, wash your damn hands so we survive this Corona (bleep)!

Great thread idea..

Anyone remember a band called The Beatles?

They had a song titled "Rain"

And an obscure band named The Ancients did a slowed down sorta gloomy version, with deep vocals and a trippy beat, dare I say that I like it better than the original(?)

Until I saw that Motown documentary, I wasn't aware Gladys Knight recorded this song before Marvin. Does that make his version a cover?

I really like The Disturbed's rendition of Paul Simon's, "The Sound of Silence".

Hmmm....

Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah is an obvious one.

Tell me if this one qualifies -- Springsteen wrote "Because the Night," but because it was one of dozens he was working on and he considered it ordinary, he let Steve Van Zandt give it to Patti Smith, who finished the lyrics, recorded it, and had a hit. Springsteen later got into the habit of playing it with his original lyrics, and it sounds way better than hers: LINK

The Hawaiian guy who re-did Somewhere Over the Rainbow.

The early blues songs that were half covered, half ripped-off by Led Zeppelin.

I generally don't like Marvin Gaye covers, but this one is my fave. These guys brought something new to the song.

I absolutely loved Linda Rondstadt as a kid (my mom had her records and I would play them) and you chose some of my favorites.

Poor Poor Pitiful Me and Tumbling Dice in particular are just tremendous covers by her and her tight band of great musicians.

We Can Work It Out by Stevie Wonder

Hard to outdo The Beatles, but Stevie did it.

I’m also very fond of I Want You (She’s So Heavy) and California Dreamin’ as interpreted by Eddie Hazel.

Love that Zevon tune. I recently watched the documentary on Linda Rondstadt. What an incredible story she has lived. An amazing woman.

The Fugees' version of "Killing Me Softly With His Song" is better than the legendary Roberta Flack's version, for me. (In fact, I just read that Flack's version was also a cover; the song had been originally released a year earlier than Flack recorded it.)

Sinatra's "I've Got You Under My Skin" is a cover, and I will not accept any assertion that someone else's version is better.

Aretha's "Respect" is an Otis Redding original; advantage, Aretha.

Whitney's version of "I Will Always Love You"; sorry, Dolly.

Streisand's version of "Somewhere" will never be duplicated.

The Gary Jules/Michael Andrews version of "Mad World" eclipses the Tears For Fears version; it's just a much better arrangement with the piano.

Lastly, I'll just say that I had never heard the Johnny Cash version of "Hurt." I just watched the video. Damn. The fact that his singing voice was obviously diminished in his frail state actually adds to his interpretation of it all. Quite powerful stuff.

After Trent Reznor heard Cash's cover of Hurt, he pretty much said it's your song now. The subject matter is something that both were intimately familiar with, but hearing it from someone who had gone all the way down the road and was near the end just added a huge boost to the emotional level of the song.

The Cramps - Fever

Cake - War Pigs (and I know someone is going to mention Gov't Mule right about here, but too bad)

Gretchen Wilson does a great version of Barracuda, and while she has the pipes to handle a tough song, it's more of a note for note recreation like Weezer's Africa, where while nothing is really taken away from the original, nothing is really added to it either, and I feel that sort of falls into its own category.
