    Re: Best/Worst remakes or covers?

    the manic street preachers versions of 'can't take my eyes off you' and 'singing in the rain' are both pretty groovey but limp bizkets version of the who's 'behind blue eyes' sucks big time. fred isn't fit to roadie pete townsend's guitar let alone cover one of his songs !

    I guess that breaks the chain (no pun intended) of great FM covers.

    Santana hit it big covering "Black Magic Woman."

    Both the Smashing Pumpkins and the Dixie Chicks did stellar covers of "Landslide" (though the radio remix of the Chicks' version sucks eggs).

    Then there was that "Tribute to Rumours" album with Jewel and Elton John and. . . . oh, wait, that was an entire album of bad Fleetwood Mac covers! My theory just went to H E Double Hockey Sticks.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    judas priest have covered 'green manalishi (with the two pronged crown)' in their live show for years, which is a cover from the peter green era fleetwood mac and i also recently discovered that 'diamonds and rust' isn't a priest song either but was originally sung by joan baez (don't know if thats the right spelling). they have made both songs their own and sound like they were written by priest themselves.

    Last time I saw Priest they did "diamonds and rust" bigtime, first 2 verses and choruses all acoustic then kicking in large for the last one, it brought tears to my eyes it was so awesome....

    Priests' cover of "Johnny b goode" from ram it down is terrible, though



    Phil Collins' "can't hurry love" stinks on ice

    Dio and Yngwie Malmsteens cover of "Dream On" (aerosmith) is pretty good...


    Oh, and agreed on Nessun Dorma, that song is so sad taken in context (as a tribute to Eric'c mother, who passed away while they were recording)
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.

    Add another one to the WORST list for me:

    Scissor Sisters - Comfortably Numb
    "It can't rain all the time."

    "Quote the Raven, Nevermore."

    Re: Best/Worst remakes or covers?

    More good (as an English teacher, I must correct that mistake: gooder )
    "Hazy Shade of Winter" The Bangles
    "Mrs. Robinson" The Lemonheads (must be a Simon & Garfunkel thing)
    "There She Goes" Six Pence None the Richer

    More bad (again, the English teacher in me commands me: worser )
    "Kiss" Tom Jones
    "Lean on Me" Club Noveux (sp?, or is it Timex Social Club?)
    "American Pie" Madonna

    Club Noveux was correct. Spelling might be off but it was them.

    I havent been around for awhile so if anyone mentioned this previously sorry. I cant stand Kelly Osbournes version of the MaDonna song "Papa dont preach".
