This has got to be my favourite cover version of all time: John Cale - Heartbreak Hotel. It probably shouldn't even be called a cover...it just took the raw Presley original, and transformed it into a shrieking, experimental gothic-tinged classic. Why is Cale so underrated?

A band called Last Town Chorus covered David Bowie's Modern Love. It has really grown on me. NOTHING like the original. Pretty cool to hear lap steel guitar in a pop song.

By rights, this should probably suck, but I really like it - The Foo Fighters (a band I've had little interest in since it developed beyond Dave Grohl's studio project and that great first album) do a cover of Arcade Fire's 'Keep the Car Running'. Stereogum have an mp3 download.

Not as good as Devo's version of the same. I love it so much that I almost certainly mentioned it earlier in this thread. The hypnotic bassline is ripe for sampling as well. I probably did the same with Joanna Newsom's cover of Hendrix's "Little Wing". Magic!

This is probably sacrilegious, but one of my most hated songs is "The Weight" by Robbie Robertson and The Band.

Hate everything about it. The allegorical lyrics, the twang, the plodding tempo, the way all those voices come together to (barely) sing "aaaaaaaaaannnnd" right before "put the load on me." I don't think it's possible for another song to make my finger hit another station preset faster than "The Weight."

Imagine my surprise when I heard John Denver's :shock: cover of The Weight. His version is a hippy/bluegrassy/lively version that really brought out the beauty of the song for me.

I was amazed... one of those moments where I suddenly had a whole new way of looking at something.

Hoo boy, you're picking a fight here!

I love The Band. I love the homemade feel of their songs. "You know what this song needs? A horn section. Anyone here play any brass instruments? No? Nobody, huh? Well, give it a try anyway." I love how easily they sound so deeply American, especially since they're 80% Canadian.

And The Weight is a great song. Sure, Robertson wrote pretentious lyrics. But the singers managed, through pure backporch honesty, to drain all the pretension from them and infuse them with real humanity.

When I was a kid, learning to play guitar, my guitar-strumming friends and I would play The Weight. Hell, it was easy, and it helped us learn to sing without being so damn self-conscious all the time. The Band's singers were totally untrained and improvisational, and they encouraged us to be the same way, and we'd wail our way through The Weight happily even if we had no idea what the words were talking about, and we loved it.

I still love it.

In fact, I love it so much, Cha-Ka, that you can piss all over it all you want and not change my opinion. :wink:

I think I'm going to go watch The Last Waltz now.

I actually really love Bowie's version. Unlike his cover of The Modern Lovers' "Pablo Picasso" on Reality, his version of "Cactus" has some depth and emotion put into it.

True, true..

Who's the putz?
The putz, or the putz that walks out twice on him?

Both times, I had gone to specifically see the opening band (Phil Lesh & Friends). Both times I really tried to watch/enjoy Dylan. The second time I even tried to keep the "But he's a legend!" mentality. Didn't help.

Huge Pixies fan over here; that is a great cover - Bowie has been quoted as saying the Pixies were the only good band in the 80's, including himself in the 'not-good' category for the decade. Not sure I agree with him, but they are probably the best band of the decade. There was other good music in the 80's as well, methinks.

Odd that no one state-side really caught on to them until they broke up - they were huge in the UK, and over here nobody had heard of them.

And speaking of Bowie, I am about to commit heresy to some; his version of Ziggy Stardust is not as good as the cover by Bauhaus – sorry, Bauhaus just did the song better – its Daniel Ash’s guitar and Murphy’s voice; they are made for that song, the song was made for them. It’s just one of those things.

Even Bowie has said that they played it better than he could

Agreed, tapes. Perhaps the drumming is a bit more frantic, but it sounds the same to me apart from Murphy's somewhat higher, thinner voice.

What is wrong with Van Morrison? The guy does great original music, but his covers don't usually work.

re: sources - I heard him speaking directly of his cover of the Pixies track on NPR, of all places - it was right around the time he released it - they played both versions of Cactus (a taste of each) and asked him why the cover - he went on to talk about them being the only good band from the 80's, and how he does not really care for the stuff he was doing with Tin Machine or whatever the hell he was doing at the time.

With his remarks on Bauhaus, I believe this stemmed from a BBC (edit - it looks like this was an NME interview from 82, actually) interview - he did not care for the band, in fact he said he did not like them - however they played the song the way it was meant to played.

There is a difference, slight, yet apparent, in the two recordings - Bauhaus plays the song a little more up-tempo, and it is a little dirtier sounding - a little rawer than Bowie's version. Bowie's version is more of a ballad, where Bauhaus made a rock track out of it.

If that makes any sense; I hope it does, just woke up, and have not finished a cup of coffee.

Nah it's cool - I usually like covers that do something different to the original - that reveal something else in the song - wheras, as you say, this is pretty similar to live versions I've heard Ziggy and the Spiders do, just a slightly garage rock version maybe. Mick Ronson was a guitar god all the time he played with Bowie.

So I'm listening to Bat For Lashes' Fur and Gold, realising this is one of the bands that PJ Harvey probably listened to a lot before recording her last album. I'm thinking it's pretty good despite is 'wymyn play music' cliches, when, at the end, they do this dark, slow-paced, almost mournful version of Springsteen's "I'm On Fire" from 'Born in The USA. Unfortunately it's the most memorable track on the album.

So, I'm at work today listening to the soundtrack for "into the wild", and while "Hard Sun" is playing, my friend says "Why in the hell are all the radio stations playing that song, it's like 12 years old. I perk up immediately and set the fella straight. I says "Hey, fella this ain't old, this is Eddie Vedder's new song, it just came out". My friend says "Eddie Vedder? I thought this was Indio.

"Indio??¿ who in the hell are Indio"

I looked Indio up and yup the song's a cover and it's pretty much exactly the same with a different vocalist. Eddie Vedder made me a damned fool.

Does it count when an artist covers their own song?

"Layla" by Derek and the Dominos
Then later redone acoustically by Clapton himself.
The remake had more of a blues feel to it that made that song for me.

And as a tribute to Johnny Cash (not superior, just paying homage to a legend) Social Distortions cover of "Ring of Fire" is pretty damn easy to listen to.

Frontline Assembly feat. Tiffany (yes, that Tiffany) covering U2's New Year's Day. Man do I love that version.

Frontline Assembly feat. Kristy Thirsk covering Madonna's Justify My Love. Another great one.

And I have to admit... I really do dig Disturbed's cover of Genesis's Land of Confusion. That song needed a harder edge than Genesis was capable of, and it works quite well.

A shit album from a shit band.


what kind of a preening jackass listens to all of a band's prior material, and then, when they put out a covers album, listens to that as well?
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.
