Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 24XW

461Walking In Memphis - Cher (Marc Cohn)
462Everlasting Love - Sandra (Robert Knight)
463Nights In White Satin - Sandra (The Moody Blues)
464Such a Shame - Sandra (Talk Talk)
465I Want You - Madonna (Marvin Gaye)
466La Isla Bonita - Ricky Martin & Glee (Madonna)
467Original Sin - Taylor Dayne (Pandora's Box)
468Gloria - Laura Branigan (Umberto Tozzi)
469Turn the Beat Around - Laura Branigan (Vicki Sue Robinson)
470Hiroshima - Sandra (Wishful Thinking)
471Hangin' Around - Hazel O'Connor (The Stranglers)
472TV-Glotzer (White Punk's On Dope) - Nina Hagen Band (The Tubes)

Even though, the music stays the same, with Nina Hagen's voice (using completely different lyrics sung in German) it almost sounds like a different song.

473The Twist - Klaus Nomi (Chubby Checker)

I'd beg everybody to check it out, just one time.

474Streets of London - Anti-Nowhere League (Ralph McTell)

This version gave a classic song a new life. Took a '60's folk-song into punk of the early '80's and treated it with respect.

475Last Caress - Metallica (The Misfits)

I love most of their covers (Am I Evil, Stone Cold Crazy, Turn the Page, Helpless, etc.), but this, combined with other Misfits-Song 'Green Hell', is by far the best. Also like their Misfits-Cover of 'Die Die, My Darling' too.

476Empty Spaces - Astra (Pink Floyd)

Ambitious to take on any Pink Floyd-Song, in my eyes, but to even improve it, is an achievement. Hats off!

477Seasons In the Abyss - Hellsongs (Slayer)

Many of their covers of Heavy Metal-Classics (Paranoid, The Trooper, Blackened, etc) are pretty amazing.

478I Heard It Through the Grapevine - The Slits (Marvin Gaye)

By far the most original cover of all the hundreds of versions.

479Modern Love - The Small Town Chorus (David Bowie)
480Crazy In Love - The Magic Numbers (Beyonce)

Totally stripped down version of one of the ultimate pop-classics, giving it almost a new perspective.
