Apologies if posted before but this makes me smile
This is brilliant
Bluegrass band Blue Summit doing Dylan's Meet Me in the Morning. Improved by solos and the absence of Bob's caterwauling.
The Iron Maidens anyone? - sorry if repost:
Have we done Cat Power yet? I love pretty much all her covers. She's just done Rihanna's Stay but I haven't heard the whole thing.
I had this as an earworm for months last year:
(I still really like it )
eta though it might have been this one
NOFX's version of "Straight Edge".
What I think makes a great cover is when you can put your own twist on it, as these guys did. Here's the original by Minor Threat. Sound nothing alike, do they? But equally as good.
The Soft Pink Truth did a great Minor Threat cover too (the whole of this album is brilliant, as is their more recent black metal covers LP)
Aretha Franklin honored during Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace
Unusual and good in the sense of it being a good thing to do, up to a point.
i think this definitely belongs in this thread.
Esther Phillips is one of may favourite singers, I always felt she should have been more famous. Love this cover of hers:
This cover of Moondog's Bird's Lament
Fucking love this Bo Rhap cover by Randy Coleman. One man n a guitar.
this is the most disgusting thing on the thread so far, and there's some stiff competition.
Surely that's subjective? (I managed about 16 seconds so I don't know)
Normally, any art is by it's very nature subjectively appreciated. I've had this one rigorously scientifically tested though, and the results are definitive: there is nothing more disgusting on this thread.
Disgusting is a strong word. Can we agree on absolutely fucking shite?
It left me feeling disgusted, so I'm going to stick with that.
