    Dmac, I definitely agree with that Barenaked Ladies cover being much better than the original; however I preferred the Band of Horses's original more than Cee Lo's version. I think the arrangement was too similar too differentiate it from the original; and I actually prefer the vocal from Band of Horse's more for this type of song than Cee Lo's.

    Chamillionaire covered a bunch of shitty radio joints on Mixtape Messiah 3 but I don't remember what they are, can't remember any other ones atm either smh



    By definition of cover can it just be sampling the song and flipping it, or does it have to be exactly the same word for word?

    @Philatit That's not a cover, that's just rapping over somebody else's beat. LOL

    @Rasko I had no idea Wilson Pickett remade that song. I still prefer the Archie's "Sugar Sugar" simply because it's more memorable as a fun, pop song. I think making it a more serious, soul song takes the best qualities of what made the original stand out.

    @Padwan Wow, I never heard of "The A-Team". That song is great. Once again, I still preferred the original. Birdy sung it well and has the stronger voice, but Ed Sheeran's voice better complimented this type of song IMO. I'm definitely downloading the original song.

    I think the Beatles were great musician's and fantastic songwriters, however I always felt their vocals were one of their weak-points; so covers for their songs have always sounded better to me.

    Case in point:

    Orignal Version


    Cover Version


    Original Version


    Cover Version


    Original Version


    I believe both of these covers were better

    1st Cover Version


    2nd Cover Version
