Great Covers that may be better than originals

Recommended Posts

It's no secret around here or anywhere that I'm a huge Beatles' fan.

Just re-read the thread and noticed this. Then recalled that my first two suggestions were both "covers that improved upon The Beatles". :blush: ...Unfortunate happenstance and nothing more. Honest.

Now, I'm quite partial to Kraftwerk's original version of "The Model", ( I suppose, technically, the actual original was "Das Model"), but I'm also a fan of late 80s noiseniks BIG BLACK, and think their version is terrific. Surprised to find such an agreeable videoclip for it.

"The Model" - Big Black

I like it! :grin:

A lot of people prefer various versions of "Hush" over the original. My favourite version is one that not many people will have heard before, by Somebody's Image, a band fronted by the great Australian singer Russell Morris.

By "original" are you referring to Joe South's version?
