    ... and appreciate this beautiful cover of Haddaway's "What is Love"?



    What covers have you heard that you consider 'better than the original'? Or at least close?

    I think this deserves recognition too:
    Cover of Johnny Cash's 'I Walk the Line'


    maybe not better but very different and really good...

    I'm a bass in my school's a-capella group - but I really wish I could sing solo, damn. My vocals don't go high enough to sing most things... :ashamed:

    Would say Amy Winehouse's cover of Valerie was better than The Zuton's version

    No. I don't like it...

    I love the original version, and I'm usually a Scissor Sisters fan, but this doesn't work for me...

    oh my gosh - obviously Pink Floyd's version will never be surpassed but that was really good and really different - it gave a completely different feel!! - i do prefer the feel of the original though
