Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 10

181 Wonderwall - Robbie Williams (Oasis)
182 Blew - Miyavi (Nirvana)

A fierce performance, with furious acoustic guitar - I think the boys of Nirvana would be entertained by Miyavi, because he is on fire! and happily insane.

183 With a Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker (The Beatles) V 4 Comments
184 Honesty - Beyonce (Billy Joel)
185 Always on My Mind - Pet Shop Boys (Willie Nelson)

ALWAYS ON MY MIND, Pet Shop Boys? what? Are you kidding? That song was originally done by Elvis in 1972, and then Willie ruined it. I've never heard The Pet Shop Boys version, but I'm pretty sure they ruined it too.

186 Jolene - White Stripes (Dolly Parton)

A good rock version to an old classic.

187 Torn - Natalie Imbruglia (Ednaswap)

better than the original many thought that she did the original song - ronluna

I agree with ronluna.. it's an amazing song I didn't thought that this is actually a cover song
Natalie is great her voice is angel-like.. Is that even correct? Angel-like? Buhhh whatever

188 I Love Rock 'n' Roll - Joan Jett (The Arrows)

this is the version everyone is probably most familiar with

189 Sweet Jane - The Cowboy Junkies (The Velvet Underground)
190 I'm Only Sleeping - The Vines (The Beatles)

Simply Amazing. Any Fan of either the Vines or The Beatles should listen. Heck if you love music hear this song!

191 Still Loving You - Sonata Arctica (Scorpions)

GREAT! made the song energetic! not that sobby-sobby kind like it was in the original...

194 Lake of Fire - Nirvana (Meat Puppets)

Outstanding!! My favourite cover of all time! This song is truely emotional to listen to. R.I.P Kurt

195 Mony Mony - Billy Idol (Tommy James & the Shondells)
196 Perfect Day - Duran Duran (Lou Reed)

Dreadful, just like all the other ones on their All-Covers-Album and I don't mind many of their own songs.

197 Bringing On The Heartbreak - Mariah Carey (Def Leppard)

198 Power Of Love - Celine Dion (Jennifer Rush)

I've always heard "The Power Of Love" played on the radio before and I really didn't like the voice because the singer's voice was shrill. When I've learned that Celine sung this song too, I decided to know her version 'cos even if DJ's mistakenly name the singer of the song as Celine, I know that it wasn't her 'cos the voice wasn't beautiful. And when I heard a better version of this song, I immediately recognized Celine's voice. And I was right 'cos when i finally got her "The Colour Of My Love" album, I knew that her own version was the best one. The Power Of Love has also become a hit especially that Celine also sung a high note at one part of the song. Great lyrics. - RLAAMJR

Haven't heard Mariah Carey's version so can't really compare but Jennifer Rush was brilliant.

A british singer did a cover of this song for a advert recently and it's better than both of these

199 Valerie - Mark Ronson & Amy Winehouse (The Zutons)
200 I Wanna Hold Your Hand - T.V. Carpio (The Beatles)
