    Old & New

    Okay, so here's a challenge for you all

    Post both the original and a cover of the same song, both worthy of listening too in their own right

    Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence from me:

    Wow, nice one Phil, 2 great songs in their own right, quite a contrast too!




    Can't really beat the original but the "Mento" version is interesting:

    How's about the original from 1962...


    and a cover from 1973 by the same artist, who just happens to be the song's writer/composer...

    In memorium: Died two hours ago at age 94, Pete Seeger, an iconic representative of American folk music:


    IMO, the best cover - by the Byrds (c. 1965)

    Since this ditty is better than 350 years old, this is as close to an original as we can get:

    The original recording is actually a cover of the song written and not recorded by its author, Billy Roberts, until the 80s...


    The best cover was, of course recorded by the master...


    ...who, in turn, taught the song to the founder and lead guitarist of Spirit
