Which Cover of Take On Me surpasses the original? I review covers by Weezer, MXPX, Reel Big Fish, A. C. Newman, Hello India Calling, 8 Bit Arcade, Seven Handle Circus, Anni B Sweet, and even an acoustic version by A-Ha themselves!
Cover Sampler: Volume 1, takes one cover from each “cover vs original” article. We also add songs from “the best covers ever,” and a few odds and ends to round the playlist out. All in all, Cover Samper Volume: 1 will give you a great two hours of music. Featuring covers by Johnny Cash, Tori Amos, Patti Smith, Jimi Hendrix, The Ramones, Pearl Jam, The Beatles, Cake, Adele, Lorde, The Barenaked Ladies, Weird Al Yankovic…..the list goes on! You’re sure to find a cover you love on Cover Sampler: Volume 1.
What really makes the covers of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes special – they make the song work for the covers, and vice versa. So many cover songs are either forced into a genre, or the band forces themselves into the genre of the song.
