Anyone else like listening to covers of songs? I love listening to a different artist's take on the original, if only to hear it in a different way. I can sit for hours and just listen to random acoustic covers on youtube.

My roommate on the other hand hates cover songs, no matter what they are. Everytime he walks by my room, he ask "Why dont you just listen to the original?"

Maybe its just personal preferance.

Anyways, what are your thoughts of cover songs? Also, what are your favorites? One that ive been listening to alot lately is Obadiah parker - Hey Ya (I would link it, but I dont have access to youtube atm).

Some I like better than the original and others just seem to butcher it.

I like the variety and change that it offers.

Here is one of my favorite acoustic Covers:
John Mayer: Free Falling

Sounds amazing on my m80's on the Where the Light is Bluray

I LOVE cover songs. After only being familiar with the Led Zep version of "Nobody's Fault but Mine", I heard a traditional rendering recently and was mesmerized.

Renegades by Rage Against The Machine, is the best cover album ever, full stop!

If you don't agree, you don't know music grin .

I like some cover songs, but I find covers of the Beatles to be abominations unto Nuggan.

Even Earth, Wind and Fire's "Gotta get you into my life"? I always like that one. In general, I'm not sure I need to hear any more Beatles songs ever again.

Edit: I heard Bob Marley's "Jammin" by Eliane Elias recently and enjoyed her interpretation quite a lot.

I started to say that I liked the song "Merry Christmas (the war is over)" by Sarah Mclachlan on the Wintersong CD, but then while I was exploring this, I discovered that this song has been a cover song for 45 different performers. (This song was originally performed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.)

Cheap Tricks full-length rendition of the Sgt. Pepper's album is pretty good. Certainly a big gamble. They're still touring it.
