Great Covers that may be better than originals

Recommended Posts

well, that's a strong opinion, but i have always like pearl jam, but i'm getting a little sick of their political stuff, and i really didn't care for eddie vedder's storytellers scene where he changes the meaning of betterman to being about bush instead of his stepfather

Here's an interesting clip somebody put together. It's a comparison of "Please Read the Letter". Written by and performed on the album "Walking Into Clarksdale" ~ Page & Plant. Plant & Krauss covered it on their album and the result is interesting .... better? I dunno, but definately different, and I like it.

Please Read the Letter

Lucky, don´t think I´m selfish and don´t care for others´ posts... it´s just that I can´t really access youtube very often. I¨m listening to this song now but it´s slow... (I mean, the internet...)

IMO Stevie Wonder's version of We Can Work It Out is hte only Beatles cover I've heard that's definitely better than the original. Earth Wind and Fire's Got To Get You Into My Life might be better too.

Well, is it possible that nobody has mentioned the Beatles' version of Twist And Shout??

I'm a proud Australian, so how about:

The Zoot's Eleanor Rigby from 1970

Incredible!! That's Rick Springfield on the killer guitar, and Beeb Birtles from LRB is in there too. YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS!!

See ya,

Here's one that well worth the finding:

Harry Nilsson's version of She's Leaving Home from his wonderful debut album.

He recorded it only days after first hearing the riginal. The Beatles soon after described Harry as their favourite US act. Coincidence?
