What covers of a song are better than the original?

Recommended Posts

Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston

I strongly disagree that Whitney's version is "way better".

That would be like saying one version of "All around the watchtower" was way better then the other.

I like Warren Zevon but the Pixies just killed it on this one.

I think the arrangement is what puts the second version over the top.

Probably my favorite cover.

I just heard this one on a Super Bowl commercial but I thought it was a pretty good cover, too.
