Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 22

421 Voodoo Child - Stevie Ray Vaughan (Jimi Hendrix)

This should be a given. Defines a great cover.

422 Rock You Like a Hurricane - The Veronicas (Scorpions)
423 Pass the Dutchie - FM (Musical Youth)
424 La Isla Bonita - Alizee (Madonna)

This cover song of alizee is the best cover ever made. Her version is million times better than Madonna's one and I don't think Madonna or anyone could imitate this song even closely to alizee. Her version takes you to a certain new level what Madonna didn't had.

One of the stupidest comments I've read! Madonna's version is UNBEATABLE! She blows any other cover version!

425 Ring of Fire - Eric Burdon (Johnny Cash)
426 Breaking the law - Motörhead (Judas Priest)
427 Different Drum = Sussanah Hoffs (Linda Ronstadt)
428 What Is Life = Shawn Mullins (George Harrison)
429 Working Class Hero = Marianne Faithfull (John Lennon)
430 It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels - Status Quo (Kitty Wells)
431 More Than This - 10,000 Maniacs (Bryan Ferry)
432 It's Only Love - Gary U.S. Bonds (The Beatles)
433 Lenny Kravitz - Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin)

I must say, I am not a fan musical covers nowadays, but this was a KICKASS performance. Even the remaining members of Zeppelin seemed to enjoy it.

434 Stand by Me - John Lennon (Ben E. King)
435 Mad World - Adam Lambert (Gary Jules)
436 Transylvania - Iced Earth (Iron Maiden)
437 Nobody's Fault - Testament (Aerosmith)
438 Unbelievable - Thousand Foot Krutch (EMF)
439 Angel - Jackie Evancho (Sarah McLachlan)
440 Long Tall Sally - The Beatles (Little Richard)

One of the BEST rock vocals of ALL TIME! A young Paul McCartney sings the "nearly impossible' on "Long Tall Sally"! - frank
