Cover songs

Cover versions. For some people covers are anathema, but I like them. That said, it depends what song is chosen. For example, two songs I like which are covers are

Paradise City – Slash with Fergie & Cypress Hill (original by Guns N Roses)

Working Class Hero – Green Day (original by John Lennon)

I like both of these and I also like the original songs.
The flipside of this are two songs where I really don’t like the cover version and prefer the original:

Cecilia – Suggs (original by Simon & Garfunkel)

Baby Come Back – UB40 & Pato Banton (original by the Equals)

All of the originals are on YouTube. Just goes to show that songs are in the ear of the beholder!
