Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 19

361 Who Wants to Live Forever - Benjamin Burnley (Queen)

It gave a flair to an already amazing song by queen, Benjamin's amazing voice made the song amazing!

362 Everytime We Touch - Cascada (Maggie Reilly)
363 Orgasmatron - Sepultura (Motörhead)
364 Legs - Nickelback (ZZ Top)
365 New Dawn Fades - Moby and New Order (Joy Division)
366 Mustang Sally - The Commitments (Wilson Pickett)

Love the Commitments version, gutsier great instrumentation.

367 Billie Jean - The Civil Wars (Michael Jackson)

Love MJ's version, but the Civil Wars make it a whole new sound.

368 The Great Pretender - Freddie Mercury (The Platters)

Absolutely brilliant cover by the best singer in the world and sounds much more better than the platters version.

369 The Seeker - Rush (The Who)
370 I Know There's Something Going On - Common Fates (Frida)
371 Unchained Melody - Harrison Craig (Righteous Brothers)

Harrison is 18 years old and to be able to sing this song way better than the original is just amazing, plus the fact that he has a stutter is incredible. He won the voice australia 2013 and I can definitely see why, Seal did a fantastic job on coaching him!

The version on the film Ghost (played by The Drifters? ) is the best for me

372 Toxic - Local H (Britney Spears)

1000% better than the original.

Oh baby can't you see

373 Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow (Guns N Roses)

I know that there's a head better songs in the list than this but this cover song is also nice and pretty cool... Good job Sheryl Crow

374 R.A.M.O.N.E.S. - The Ramones (Motörhead)

Motörhead wrote a tribute song for The Ramones, which they later covered.

375 Have You Ever Seen the Rain? - The Ramones (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
376 Surfin' Bird - The Ramones (The Trashmen)
377 California Sun - The Ramones (The Rivieras)

Should be a lot higher on the list!

378 Little Bit O' Soul - The Ramones (Music Explosion)
379 Disintegration/Free Money - Slayer (Verbal Abuse)
380 Ordinary World - Red (Duran Duran)

Absolutely love Michael's voice
