    Cover versions



    Ryan Tubridy has started this mornings programme with "With a little help from my friends", saying thatit is better than the original ( The Beatles). How about starting a list of songs where the cover is better than the original?

    I wouldn't saw the cover is better than the original, but I'd definitely say it was the most original cover of a song that I've ever heard. Scissor Sisters' version of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb.

        Sorry, Elle, I think they should have done time for it.

          is possibly one of the worst cover version ever publicly released

            Oasis version of Slades' "Come on feel the noise" is much better than the original.

                    Lisa Hannigan covering Dylan's ''Just like Tom Thumb's Blues'' is one of my favourites at the moment.

                        The cover of Tears for Fears "Mad World" - is it used in Donnie Darko or something??

                          Johnny Cash "One" ( I also heard a version in a pub session in Dunshaughlin in 2002 which was much better than both the original and Johnny Cash's version)

                            NO, NO, NO!!!!! Nothing can beat Leonard Cohen, imho. The man is a genius and has a voice like an angel on 60 a day.
