Not saying the originals are bad, just that covers are more iconic. The cover artists are now more associated with the song. I would like more "official" examples as well as personal choices.


Case A: Hey Joe

"Original"(First commercial recording)
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCZNFPaz1iw[/youtube]

Cover
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAMM2Wg3DW8[/youtube]



Case B: Knocking on Heaven's Door

Original
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaSIPQ-Bdc8[/youtube]

Cover
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tmc8rJgxUI[/youtube]



Case C(For Jon): Nothing Compares to You

Original
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LBc7-v5exY[/youtube]

Cover
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dq2K4jHs92A[/youtube]



Personal Mention: Cortez The Killer
Not really fair because its live vs studio.

Original

Cover

I didn't know Hey Joe was a cover, but holy shit the original is bad.

I like Eric Clapton's version of Knocking on Heaven's Door significantly better.

I think Eric Clapton's cover of I Shot the Sheriff is 100x better than Bob Marley's original version.

Here's another. Sufjan Steven's version of A Little Lost is so much better than Arther Russell's.
