Worst cover versions ever

Recommended Posts

I was only joking about Rasputin, but I have been known to do unlikely covers (eg Slade's 'Coz I luv you'), so ....guilty as charged (but I always liked the song;( )

How about Amy Grant doing 'Big Yellow Taxi'...offal!

Feck all wrong with Slade - I'd like to cover "We'll Bring The House Down"

As for "Big Yellow Taxi", there are certain songs for which court injunctions should be taken out to prevent cunts from making a cunt of them. The cunts.

BYT is one such song.

Big Yellow Taxi's a difficult one though. The original is a class tune, right up until the very end when she does that stupid contrived laugh. When you hear that it always makes you want to go and record a new version that doesn't have it.

Agreed ...the laugh gets a bit wearing after one hearing.

I'd forgotten about the 'Jolene' cover...that was sung by (and suggested by) a certain promoter of interesting music who wishes to remain anonymous.

Here's an angram clue.... Me Rage:up:

It really was good. And not that the main vocal wasn't good, but I seem to recall being particularly impressed by the backing vocals.

my cassette of me recording covers on a dodgy 4 track are the worst cover versions of all time. actually makes steve brookstein and all those other x factor losers look pretty good....

I dunno if many folk have heard them, but the covers of Nick Drake and John Martyn songs by Elton John are painful.

Urgh, Elton John IS painful anyway but that sounds awful....
