This thread is for tracing song's original versions and to talk about all the diferent covers made to songs.

These are the ones I remember now I put (what I believe) is the original singer/band in the left side

Aerosmith- Dream On (reinterpreted as Sing for the Moment by Eminem)

Bee Gees- I started a Joke /covered by Wallflowers

Bee Gees - To Love Somebody /covered by Eagle-Eye Cherry and Billy Corgan

Depeche Mode- Personal Jesus/ covered by Marilyn Manson

Depeche Mode- Shout/ covered by Disturbed (shout 2000)

Depeche Mode-Let me see you strip /covered by Rammstein

Gloria Jones - Tainted Love/ covered by Soft Cell and Marilyn Manson

Human League-Open Your Heart /covered by Ladytron

Michael Jackson- Smooth Killer /covered by Alien Ant Farm

Michael Jackson- Beat it /covered by Senor Coconut (the weirdest cover I've ever heard ;) )

Simon&Garfunkel- Mrs Robinson /covered by Lemonhead.

The Animals-House of the Rising Sun/ covered by Muse

I've mentioned my favourite covers in the other threads already, but a more recent one I'm really digging is Disturbed covering Genesis' "Land of confusion".

HIM covering Chris Isaak's "Wicked game" also gets a mention :rockon:

Oh, and White Stripes doing "Jolene".

"Blackbird" - Dionne Farris/Beatles

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Tori Amos/Nirvana

"One" - Aimee Mann/Three Dog Night/Nilsson

"Song To The Siren" - This Mortal Coil/Tim Buckley (Tim's original is the best vocal ever recorded)

And my new personal favorite: "Six Months In A Leaky Boat" - The Wiggles/Split Enz (or Tim Finn)

Later edit: forgot about "Found A Reason" - Cat Power/Velvet Underground. Not a VU fan, but I love this version of that song.
