My Ten Favourite Covers
CFNY Edge 102 has been playing a tonne of cover songs all weekend long. I'm a fan of the cover. I enjoy it when I band I like takes another tune I like and pays homage to it by performing it their way.
A few years ago, a friend and I compiled 80 minutes of our favourite covers we called "Cover Me Badd" but hearing covers all weekend long on the radio has me wondering what my ten favourite covers of all time might look like.
Here's my top ten, in order of preference.
- Pearl Jam - Throw Your Arms Around Me
- Pearl Jam - Crazy Mary
- Nirvana - The Man Who Sold The World
- Limp Bizkit - Faith
- Johnny Cash - Hurt
- Aaron Lewis - Black
- Aretha Franklin - Respect
- Ike & Tina Turner - Proud Mary
- Jimi Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower
- Tricky - Black Steel
