Cover Songs That Might Be Better Than the Original Version

It’s always fun to hear how an artist can take a universally loved song and make it their own. And while I agree that some of these are better, or maybe just more well known, there’s one on this list list that I absolutely do not agree with. Here’s what songs Far Out Magazine think that MIGHT be better than the original:

1.  “All Along the Watchtower”,  Jimi Hendrix . . . originally by Bob Dylan.

2.  “Hurt”,  Johnny Cash . . . originally by Nine Inch Nails.

3.  “Hallelujah”,  Jeff Buckley . . . originally by Leonard Cohen.

4.  “The Man Who Sold the World”,  Nirvana . . . originally by David Bowie.

5.  “Jolene”,  The White Stripes . . . originally by Dolly Parton. THIS ONE! How dare they!

6.  “Me & Bobby McGee”,  Janis Joplin . . . originally by Roger Miller.

7.  “I Fought the Law”,  The Clash . . . originally by Sonny Curtis.

8.  “Mr. Tambourine Man”,  The Byrds . . . originally by Bob Dylan.

9.  “With a Little Help From My Friends”,  Joe Cocker . . . originally by The Beatles.

10.  “Respect”,  Aretha Franklin . . . originally by Otis Redding.
