Best Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 25

481 You're the Voice - Kate Miller Heidke (John Farnham)
482 Birthday - Sammy Hagar (The Beatles)
483 Bohemian Rhapsody - Panic! at the Disco (Queen)

You should really listen to this cover of Bohemian Rhapsody.. This cover is the closest thing to the real one!

It's not even on the top 10? Seriously?!

484 Nightcrawler - Powerwolf (Judas Priest)

Amazing cover the keyboards make the song even more heart pounding

485 Walking In Memphis - Cher (Marc Cohn)
486 Everlasting Love - Sandra (Robert Knight)
487 Nights In White Satin - Sandra (The Moody Blues)
488 Such a Shame - Sandra (Talk Talk)
489 I Want You - Madonna (Marvin Gaye)
490 La Isla Bonita - Ricky Martin & Glee (Madonna)
491 Original Sin - Taylor Dayne (Pandora's Box)
492 Gloria - Laura Branigan (Umberto Tozzi)
493 Turn the Beat Around - Laura Branigan (Vicki Sue Robinson)
494 Hiroshima - Sandra (Wishful Thinking)
495 Hangin' Around - Hazel O'Connor (The Stranglers)
496 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.

497 The Twist - Klaus Nomi (Chubby Checker)

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

498 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.

499 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.

500 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!
