Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 24

461 When Something Is Wrong With My Baby - Jimmy Barnes & John Farnham (Sam & Dave)
462 You're the Voice - Kate Miller Heidke (John Farnham)
463 Birthday - Sammy Hagar (The Beatles)
464 Nightcrawler - Powerwolf (Judas Priest)

Amazing cover the keyboards make the song even more heart pounding

465 Walking In Memphis - Cher (Marc Cohn)
466 Everlasting Love - Sandra (Robert Knight)
467 Nights In White Satin - Sandra (The Moody Blues)
468 Such a Shame - Sandra (Talk Talk)
469 I Want You - Madonna (Marvin Gaye)
470 La Isla Bonita - Ricky Martin & Glee (Madonna)
471 Original Sin - Taylor Dayne (Pandora's Box)
472 Gloria - Laura Branigan (Umberto Tozzi)
473 Turn the Beat Around - Laura Branigan (Vicki Sue Robinson)
474 Hiroshima - Sandra (Wishful Thinking)
475 Hangin' Around - Hazel O'Connor (The Stranglers)
476 TV-Glotzer (White Punk's On Dope) - Nina Hagen Band (The Tubes)

Even though, the music stays the same, with Nina Hagen's voice (using completely different lyrics sung in German) it almost sounds like a different song.

477 The Twist - Klaus Nomi (Chubby Checker)

I'd beg everybody to check it out, just one time.

478 Streets of London - Anti-Nowhere League (Ralph McTell)

This version gave a classic song a new life. Took a '60's folk-song into punk of the early '80's and treated it with respect.

479 Last Caress - Metallica (The Misfits)

I love most of their covers (Am I Evil, Stone Cold Crazy, Turn the Page, Helpless, etc.), but this, combined with other Misfits-Song 'Green Hell', is by far the best. Also like their Misfits-Cover of 'Die Die, My Darling' too.

480 Empty Spaces - Astra (Pink Floyd)

Ambitious to take on any Pink Floyd-Song, in my eyes, but to even improve it, is an achievement. Hats off!
