Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
Great Cover, everybody judges this one because of the artist and because people thought he crossed the line by being a good business man instead of beatles fan. Still he is a great beatles fan and nailed this one making it fresh and interesting for the first time it has been covered. He should had left it in Moonwalker though. Putting it on the HIStory album was unnecessary. It doesn't fit the sound of the album at all.
I kinda liked it when the Beatles sang it. But it's a really cool song ya know. Oh and just one more thing my comments are always at the last on the list. Why is that?
This song was an amazing song for Michael. He made an awesome video for this and you just can't take your eyes off him... xo - love4mjj
Michael stays true to the original version yet incorporates his own personal touch. An awesome cover ❤️. - FlakyCuddles43V 2 Comments
I still prefer the original but this is brilliant. - LedSabbath
No doubt best version of War Pigs - UFasten8Me
This cover is so great that we almost forgot the original song.
This has got to be the greatest original and cover song of time. Both #1 hits.
Not a lot has been changed in orchestration, none at all in lyrics, but the voice of Tarja has taken a great song to a new level.
Best cover ever because it turned one of the worst songs ever made into something decent, well-composed and not just pop crap.
Yupp... that's called a 'cover' - hereisHorizon
Shows what brilliant musicians Yes were and are.
Carlos Santana's version of this Peter Green classic stays true to the original while adding a new flair to it through Santana's Latin influence. The Gypsy Queen solo adds a lot more power and "oomph" to the song, enough for me to consider it an incredible cover song. - c0mf0rta61ynum6
