Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 11

201 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - Otis Redding (The Rolling Stones)
202 Talk Talk - Alice Cooper (The Music Machine)
203 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Aretha Franklin (Simon & Garfunkel)

No way this could ever come anywhere near Simon & Garfunkel's rendering. It was written by Paul Simon for goodness sake!

204 Umbrella - Vanilla Sky (Rihanna)
205 Snowblind - System of a Down (Black Sabbath)

Amazing cover. - FlaMeThrOwer9

206 Lollipop - Framing Hanley (Lil Wayne)

Simply amazing... never thought Lil Wanye's version could be made better... The best song Framing Hanley's ever done! - JesusOfSuburbia07

How the hell is this song that low I mean it's better then the original needs to be higher - donovanthorn

That was certainly a cover I wasn't expecting. - NuMetalManiak

207 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit (The Who)

For the first time a cover is just as good as the original but in a different style. Both songs are great but I just like the singing solo in the original. Great song anyway.

It actually might be better than the who's version

208 Poker Face - Daughtry (Lady Gaga)

Epic Cover by daughtry, a 100 times better than lady gaga version...

Just the Epic Voice of Chris Daughtry and his acoustic guitar is enough to make a song better than gaga and her music system!

One of the Best Covers of all time... - shouryakhichariya
