    What are your favorite cover songs?

    If you created a music playlist where all of the songs were cover versions, what are some of the songs and whose versions would you include?

    The one that comes to mind would have to be Whitney Houston singing "I will always love you" written by Dolly Parton.

    Probably my favourites would be all covers of Bob Dylan :-
    Hendrix - All Along the Watchtower
    Byrds - Tambourine man
    Julie Driscol and the Brian Auger Trinity - This Wheels on Fire
    Joan Baez - Farewell Angelina.
    Oh and Dylan's  cover of Paul Simon's The Boxer, and his live cover of - The Sound of Silence
    Generally I prefer the original recordings.

    "Killing Me Softly" by Georgeana Bonow in bossa nova style. Gives a very interesting twist to the classic.

    Also "Stairway to Heaven" performed live by Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart)

    and Deep Purple's "When a Blind Man Cries" by Metallica

    I like a good number of covers, sometimes they do a better job than the original artist.

    Al Green- How Can You Mend A Broken Heart
    Al Green- For the Good Times
    Amy Winehouse-Valerie
    Whitney Houston- I Will Always Love You
    No Doubt- It's My Life
    Natalie Imbruglia- Torn
    Boyz II Men- It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday
    Mariah Carey- I Still Believe

    I actually did write a hub on my favorite cover tunes. #1 on my list was Johnny Cash's reworking of Nine Inch Nails "Hurt". As much as I was a fan of the original (NIN's The Downward Spiral was an important album of my youth back in the 90s), Cash claimed ownership of the song. He transformed the song from a song about self mutilation into a song of self reflection and regret. Cash's video is also particularly moving.
