Cover Version

 

 

It’s said that imitation is the best form of flattery. If that’s true, then in the music world, there’s no better way to show that you love a song than recording your own version of it.
Some cover songs remain extremely faithful to the original version of the song, while others take the song in a new direction by putting the cover artist’s own spin on it. Some of the best covers are so successful at capturing the true spirit of a song that they become even more well known than the original version.

For me, the best cover songs are those that rework the original and really turn it into a new song. Some cover songs even become more popular than the original recording of the song and maybe because they have the same guitar bought at guitar center store. I think that is just fine, but sometimes cover artists go too far in their interpretation of a song. I think it’s important to respect the original version of a song while putting one’s own spin on it.

Say something to me :)
