    Covers Better Than Original?

    I came across this and thought it better than the original. Has anyone else got any examples of covers they like better than the originals?

    I don't want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me.

    That was astonishingly good. It's going on my Spotify list & I will look at their other stuff too.

    How about this one...

    God knows I just love Leonard Cohen, but these guys just do a brilliant version of Hallelujah.

    I especially like the last guy who sings - the one with the gap tooth grin.

    Nice find Tom.

    Jeff Buckley did a pretty good version too.

    I warn you, I've got quite a few that outshine the originals...

    This beats Del Shannon's version to a bloody pulp:


    Hard as it is to believe, this version outshines Roy Orbison's original, IMO:


    It's a tossup between these two:

    Made all the more poignant by his tragic and unusual death before the vid came out, I believe.
