Interesting choice @wingshq !

 

Would it be too heretic to say I prefer the Kim Wilde version? :)

Marilyn Manson's cover of Soft Cell's cover of Gloria Jones' Tainted Love is great:

haha, no it's not too heretic, I prefer Kim's version over The Supremes too, but Vanilla Fudge gave me a version that gave me such a positive surprise when i heard it the first time. I have to admit I heard it first last year, despite it being such an old song.

Great thread.

 

I prefer Changes by 2pac to The Way It Is by Bruce Hornsby and the Range. The sample was used brilliantly and in a way that makes the song more dynamic. Stylistically the two songs are worlds apart but that's the beauty of it.

Wow! This is a can of worms, Meredith. It is all down to personal taste, so this maybe seen as sacrilege rather than heretical. I much prefer Metallica' version of 'Turn the Page' than Bob Segers. For me it has more raw energy, more venom, dare I say it, it's more heart felt.

As far as I know there's no original version by Bob Seger on Spotify. Shame.

A song very close to my heart and has a lot of meaning for me personally, so sorry MartinStoichkov, I can't agree with you. Much prefer 'The Who' version. :)

 

And kirashi, don't get me started on 'auto-tune'. Yes, there's a time and a place for it, but 'vocal enhancement'. No! If you can't at least carry a tune, don't sing at all. Justin Bieber take note.

My most heretical opinion: That "Punk" failed in it's attempt to do away with the old and bring in the new and was, in most ways, Teenage Kicks by the Undertones is an exception, worse that what came before.

@Red_Neck That's why the thread is for heretical opinions hehe! 

Basically, I don't like artists who makes remixes, but this one especially I like more, and because of the fact I grew up with Limp Bizkit in my teenage years

Even though I do not mind remakes, artists have been doing remakes of originals since the beginning days of Rock 'n' Roll. But it does have to be done well, keeping the heart of the original but adding just that little bit of spark to the original so the artist can make it their own.

 

I always go back to this cover release project by A Perfect Circle, they take old classic political songs and do something wonderful with them and re-imagine them somehow.

 

 

A wiki page to have some information behind the song choices:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotive_(album)

 

Also The Who's - Behind Blue Eyes, an artist has to turn up the notch to attempt to do something brazen that stands out from The Who. I do not have much of a complaint of Limp Bizkit, but well the lead singer in my view sure knows how to kill a moment from a duo he did with Staind's lead singer long ago, not sure I want to chance it with such a classic song from The Who.

 

As far as Landslide by Fleetwood Mac, I might have to venture down and see if the Dixie Chicks version can actually break the spell of Stevie Nicks original, hard to beat that awesome vocal talent there on the Fleetwood Mac version.

 

Going to have a hard think on this, sometimes I like originals better than remakes, but the 60's-70's era of rock saw rather good remakes of classic Blues songs as well, so sometimes new playing techniques pushed new remakes of these songs to new heights. Slayer did an almost complete cover album of classic Hardcore punk songs for those interested in what influenced speed, thrash metal during the early 80's.

 

 

A wiki page for information of what bands and songs were covered on this Slayer release: 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undisputed_Attitude

 

Metallica's Garage, Inc. which is the complete collection of cover work from the Garage Days Revisited era and afterwards. The release is worth a few spins, the band takes classic Rock and Hard rock, punk songs, and the new emerging NWOBHM coming out about the time the band was playing music, the band takes these cover songs to new heights in some respects, and what influenced the band members, and their music direction.

Bowie's The Man Who Sold The World is kinda boring and flat but the cover version by Midge Ure is so much better than the original.
