As my interests seem to be RB and music (apart from the normal family and work stuff) I ponder a lot.
This week I bought a 3 CD compilation set from a supermarket of punk songs. Being an ageing punk, I know that some of these compilations contain hidden gems and, luckily, this one did along with some other great tracks.
Anyways - to get back to the subject, I am not usually someone who likes cover versions but, being a old punk and a young one a long time ago, I know that some punk groups have released some fantastic cover versions - i will say that Sid Vicious' version of My Way was better than Sinatra's to annoy people but i think it is. There are plenty of punk covers.
In the box set, was a cover of the Beatles - Hard Days Night by Slaughter and the Dogs - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6w2RWZO0BoQ
and i love it - the bass is amazing!!!!
So, if you have the time and the inclination, post up your favourite cover versions - if it is an odd one please supply the original artist.
Another example is the song Iris which was murdered by some boy band person - memory fails me, so all covers are not necessarily good.
Hope you are all having a good weekend,
