Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 11

201 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

202 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

203 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

218 Rebel Yell - Children of Bodom (Billy Idol)
219 Uptown Girl - Westlife (Billy Joel)
220 Yesterday - Ray Charles (The Beatles)

I can't believe it's not on the list! The cover is so much better than the original, after listening to this version I finally understood what is the song about.

Way better than the original! Much more sad and dramatic than The Beatles version. Ray Charles really expresses the meaning of the lyrics. - saaarsdej
