I’ve been compiling this little list of good covers after famous songs. I still think that the best cover ever is Milow’s Ayo Technology which is one gazillion times better than the 50 Cent version.
And here are other covers that I really enjoyed and that you might want to check out.
1. Milow – Ayo Technology (50 Cent)
2. Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
I am a big Cohen fan, but Buckley’s soft voice+guitar combo makes this song is just awesome.
3. Live – Walk the line (Johnny Cash)
This is awesome in so many ways!
4. The Baseballs – Hey there Delilah (Plain White Ts)
5. The Baseballs – Umbrella (Rihanna)
For some 50s charm…
6. Switchfoot – Crazy in love (Beyonce)
7. Cake – I will survive (Gloria Gaynor)
8. Bowling for Soup – Baby one more time (Britney Spears)
Obviously better than the original.
9. Limp Bizkit – Faith (George Michael)
10. All Time Low – Umbrella (Rihanna)
A rock version. Not bad.
11. Alien Ant Farm – Smooth Criminal (Michael Jackson)
Not better, but interesting and worth listening to.
12. The Lemonheads – Mrs Robinson (Simon&Garfunkel)
Also, not necessarily better, but not bad either.
I’ve left Pomplamousse for the end, because they are INCREDIBLE!
Here are the links to some of their covers:
Telephone (Lady Gaga)
Single Ladies (Beyonce) – I like this one the best
La Vie en Rose (Edith Piaf)
