I can appreciate some cover songs. SOME are much better than the original. But… I don’t like that when you type “sound of silence” into Spotify, the top result is Disturbed.
Hurt by Johnny Cash is another one. NIN’s version is just as good – if not better. Who can beat the build up at 2:00 minutes and the ending at 4:31 minutes…
Some notable cover songs that I think are better than the original are:
Green Day – Working Class Hero
The Ataris – The Boys of Summer
And that’s all I can think of at the moment!
Thanks for reading!
