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.

>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.

I tried listening to one of their covers but had to turn it off because it was so shite. Quite a lot of artists going for that sort of sound aren't anything special once you get past the novelty factor.

They do have as couple of genuinely cracking covers, I will defend them that far. However they also have a lot of lazy shite ones that completely miss what should have been obvious features of the original, and just throw the lyrics at a generic sounding bit of jazz backing.

It's all sickeningly hipster, but whoever picks their songs has shite taste in the first place. If they took their time they might be great.

That cover is dog shit.

It does nothing new to the song creatively. It just sounds like a crapper version.

I feel sad for Weird Al. Weezer can drag themselves through the dirt (in fact I've been lead to believe from their self loathing previous work that they like to) that's fine. But there is no need to take it out on Al, Toto and US, just to try cash in on a meme.

Given that Brian Wilson was arguably the greatest pop arranger of all time, the question is whether anyone should bother covering his work. The main artistic justification for recording a cover is to reveal a new perspective on the original composition, but can anyone credibly claim that they listened to God Only Knows and thought aha, I know what Brian Wilson missed when he arranged and recorded that?

In this case the artistic justification is to pick a song that will get a lot of likes and shares from hipsters who want to hear Pet Sounds with a saxophone.

I listened to them when I was about 12 or 13, it has genuinely never occurred to me that they'd still be going. Next you'll tell me Papa Roach has a cult following in Latin America or something.

But yeah I think it's serious. I would suggest he's probably on summat though.
