Writer's Block: Cover me

Which songs have been covered better by artists who didn't originally sing them?


So normally I do not give a crap about the writer's block but this one did catch my fansy. So here are some of my favorite


I know that I already posted this song but I am still mainlining it so it has to be posted again


This version is just epic


She did a great job making this her own song.


Just pure and simple awesomeness

EDIT:


Kind of ashamed that I forgot to put this one in here too.

I love that Shiny Toy Gun's version of Major Tom. It's sounds so modern 80's, i just have to find the download.

The Tori Amos song and video were sad but deeply moving.

The instrumental version of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters... WOW i don't have the words. Just beautiful!!

Im glad u posted K.D. Lang's version of Hallelujah. i had no idea she singed it. I need to download this song too. :) Thanks for sharing!

I have been a fan of Shiny Toys Guns since I Le Disko but this song knocked it up to another level. I have been listening to this song n repeat since I first heard it a while back. Their cover of Stripped is pretty impressive too.

Tori's cover has always been very haunting. It still makes me stop what I am doing every time that it comes on.

I am pretty sure that was the first ever song that I heard by Apocalytpica and I instantly fell in love with them when I did.

I am not sure when I first heard KD's version but ever since then no other version hold a candle to hers.
