Writer's Block: Cover me
tiredk
Which songs have been covered better by artists who didn't originally sing them?

"Hurt."
I like Nine Inch Nails, but Johnny Cash stole this song. His cover was way better.

"Mad, Mad World."
I like the Gary Jules cover, not a fan of the original.

"Hallelujah"
The Jeff Buckley version. As with Hurt, I like Leonard Cohen too, but Jeff Buckley's cover rules.

I noticed several people prefer different versions of Hallelujah, but why I wonder? Buckley's is sooo good. I do like the original "Mad, Mad World" but agree the cover is better.
