Mink Machine

Favorite cover songs

For every band there is a cover band. A lot of people hate cover versions of their beloved songs, since cover bands often manage to mess up a perfectly good song. However, there are some versions which bring forth new dimensions to a song. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen)
  • Marilyn Manson – Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics)
  • Gary Jules – Mad World (Tears For Fears)
  • Nine Inch Nails – Dead Souls (Joy Division)
  • Johnny Cash – Hurt (Nine Inch Nails)
  • This Mortal Coil – Song to the Siren (Tim Buckley)
  • Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan)
  • Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Tower of Song (Leonard Cohen)
  • Ryan Adams – Wonderwall (Oasis)
  • Tori Amos – Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
  • U2 – Helter Skelter (The Beatles)
  • Cowboy Junkies – Sweet Jane (Velvet Underground)
  • Placebo – Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush)
  • Tori Amos – Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode)

Any suggestions to great songs that should be on the list?
