Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
Many songs have been covered by another artist later in time. Sometimes, the cover turns out to be better than the original. I wanted to share some originals and their covers with you and please feel free to comment some of your favorite covers as well. Hope you enjoy 🙂
1- Etta James ‘At Last’. Cover done by Beyoncé
2- Fleetwood Mac ‘Landslide’. Cover by The Dixie Chicks
3-Queen ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Cover done by Panic at the Disco. *I first learned about Bohemian Rhapsody when I watched “Wayne’s World” in the 90’s. My son introduced me to the cover recently as Panic at the Disco is one of his favorite groups. This is a pretty difficult song to cover and while nothing can beat Queen’s version, I think the Panic boys did a pretty good job.
4-Dolly Parton ‘I Will Always Love You’. Cover by Whitney Houston. This is probably one example where I like the cover way more than the original. This song was meant for Whitney.
5- Chaka Khan ‘I’m Every Woman’. Cover done by Whitney Houston. *I don’t think it’s possible for Whitney to NOT kill any song she sings.
6-DeBarge ‘Love Me In a Special Way’. Cover done by Tamia. *Tamia makes any song that she sings sound amazingly beautiful.
7- Frankie Valli ‘Can’t Take My Eyes off of You’. Cover done by Lauryn Hill.
8-Betty Hutton ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’. Cover done by Bjork.
