Top 10 Cover Songs Better Than the Original


The Contenders: Page 9

161 The Way You Make Me Feel - Sunrise Avenue
162 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin

I have absolutely NO CLUE how this wasn't even on this list! I see Selena Gomez, Britney Spears and Olly Murs, but NO Led Zeppelin! Led Zeppelin took this 1929 blues classic and made it into one of their best songs in their catalog. Really epic song.

163 Hallelujah - Jeff Gutt
164 Poker Face - Glee Cast
165 Love You Like a Love Song - Glee Cast
166 Friday - Glee Cast

This is obviously better than the original! Rebecca Black sucks!

167 The Scientist - Glee Cast
168 My Little Red Book - Love

RIP Arthur Lee, the music world misses you!

169 Freedom - Robbie Williams
170 At the Ballet - Glee Cast
171 Steady As She Goes - Fitz and the Tantrums
172 Peter Gunn - Art of Noise
173 Angels Among Us - Demi Lovato
174 You Spin Me Round - Dope
175 Baby - Relient K
176 Skinny Love - Birdy
177 Please Come Home for Christmas - Aaron Neville
178 Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
