Best Cover Songs
The Contenders: Page 6
This is such a great version of a classic song. Paul Simon openly stated how much he likes the song. Draiman's singing is perfect. They didn't make this song super metal, their is violin, piano, acoustic guitar and Draiman's singing. Truly a great songV 1 Comment
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
One of my favourite songs in the MTV Unplugged performance (hard fight though), Kurt voice just give me shivers every time I listen to this song.
This deserves top 5
What kind of people visit this page anyway?
Seriously? I'm sure a lot of votes will change once people actually hear this
This is without a shadow of doubt the best cover song I have ever heard. When Kurt screams those final lyrics I get cold shivers and even a bit emotional to think what couldve been if Kurt never shot himself - Danielsun182

Anyone who listens to Metallica says all their songs are good. Given if it was before the Black Album. But, I'd say it's still one of the worse covers I heard.V 1 Comment
Best cover song of all time in my opinion...V 1 Comment
Lot of people like this song. I love this version.
Can't believe, it's not at least in Top 50. This is what a good cover-version is all about creating something new and different, but still respecting the original. Not just a perfect imitation, or even, just speeding or slowing the tempo down, like so many in this list.
