Reportedly when Franklin heard Joplin's cover she didn't even recognize it as the same song

To me a great cover is something that takes a song and makes it different from the original...that makes it their own that can stand alone next to the original. Or even better.

Some Examples (Not already mentioned here of which there are some doozies Smile ):

Sonic Youth's dark cover of the Carpenter's Superstar

Dynamite Hack's FOLK cover of Easy E's Boys In the Hood

Black Crowes' version of Hard to Handle (one of my fave songs PERIOD)

Cardigan's Lounge act cover of Black Sabbath's Iron Man

Willie Nelson Covering the Scientist (And somehow made that song darker than the original)

The Ramones' cover of Surfin Bird (They made one of the worst songs ever written into something with a melody...that is why they're hall of fame quality folks LOL)

That's column A, Column B deals with songs that were overpopped and lost much of their meaning in the original or hit versions. Their covers reclaimed their essence and made BOTH versions more enjoyable.

Some Examples:

Gary Jules' Cover of Mad World by Tears for Fears

Placebo's Cover of Running up that Hill by Kate Bush

and a more mainstream example

Barenaked Ladies' cover of Bruce Cockburn's Lovers in a Dangerous time, a song that always hits me emotionally when things get poltically FD up...well written but the original was too 80s fied

Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". One of those songs where the cover has become the version you think of first, whenever it is mentioned.

From the "I bet you didn't know this was a cover" department:

Everyone knows and loves this song from 1997

<embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/VV1XWJN3nJo?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

It was first recorded by Danish artist Lis Sorensen in 1993

Everyone knows 1985's Holding Back the Years by Simply Red:

What you probably didn't know is that it's a cover of a song from 1982 by punk band Frantic Elevators

Since I mentioned The Supremes version of Someday We'll Be Together, it seemed like a good time to note that it is a cover.

The original was by Johnny and Jackey in 1961

Another one you probably didn't know was a cover, from 1987

<embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/4BQLE_RrTSU?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BQLE_RrTSU

Originally recorded by Franke and the Knockouts in 1981. Franke Previte wrote the song.

<embed src="//www.youtube.com/v/RquN0kdR9qE?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RquN0kdR9qE

They used the Franke and the Knockouts version when filming Dirty Dancing but ultimately failed to get the rights and had to have Medley and Warnes record it. Patrick Swayze reportedly preferred the original.

Sort of, but not exactly. Previte indeed wrote the song, but he wrote it specifically for the movie. He recorded a demo of it, but the producers didn't plan to use his version. That demo was then later recorded on a reissue of that Franke and Knockouts 1981 album - it didn't appear on the original because it hadn't be written yet.

Had the song been written and released earlier - it would not have been eligible for the Best Original Song Academy Award that it won for 1987.

In honor of the death of Paul Revere (of the Raiders) over the weekend, let's note that the band's biggest hit, Indian Reservation, was a cover.

I posted the Raiders hit 1971 version in Revere's RIP thread here:

http://boards.rebkell.net/viewtopic.php?t=82078

The original was by an actual Native American, Marvin Rainwater, in 1959

Arthur Alexander's version does not have the "Hunk-a Hunk-a Burning Love" outro

One of my favorite recent covers is Clapton's rendition of Little Wing on his Live in San Diego album (with Derek Trucks and Doyle Bramhall II).

This Hendrix piece is obviously oft-covered, but another one of my favorite (and different than usual) renditions of Little Wing is by The Corrs. If you heard this without knowing its origin, I doubt you would associate it with Jimi Hendrix.
