8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

It's nice how a language barrier can lead to an original sounding cover that still does it justice.

Weezer have just released a covers album. Unsurprisingly, it's largely shite.

It's fucking tragic when a band covers something and does it beat for beat exactly the same as the original - what's the fucking point? Do it 'weezer style' or don't do it at all. As >>11563 highlights, at least RBF bothered to arrange the song to suit their own sound.

>weezer style

Is there such a thing? I know they're generic, bland and inoffensive but if you take, say, Jimmy Eat World as another middle of the road American band then at least they've got a distinct sound.

I think they do have a style, it's not too far away from generic, but I think if I played you a weezer song you hadn't heard you'd likely recognise it as them. They have a certain guitar style and the vocals are pretty distinct. Again, nothing groundbreaking, but the two combined is enough to give them a sound, I reckon.

I really don't want to give them too much credit, they're not very good. But you could definitely make your cover of Take on Me sound more Weezery than they did, just make your guitar rhythms more staccato and get the lad in the back to do some of the chorus with you.

Amusingly here's a lad doing a Weezer cover in a way that sounds more like Weezer than when Weezer actually recorded it.

>Marilyn Manson has a similar effect on me; every time I hear one of his covers it makes me appreciate the original and want to listen to that instead.

Not so much a cover but an alternate mix by Maynard, Frusciante and Nine Inch Nails bass player/keyboardist Danny Lohner.

John Frusciante has always seemed underappreciated to me. I know a lot of his solo work is quite experimental, but Shadows Collide With People is one of my favourite albums.

Not quite a cover but I really enjoy the contrast between the gangsta rap lyrics and the carefree melody of Bananarama's Cruel Summer.
