Come on, people, POST! This is such an interesting and versatile theme, I wanna see more songs.


Btw, the cover's finished. I didn't really have inspiration for a pic, so I went with a simple typography approach similar to sth I once saw on the net.

Great cover as always

Guess I'll go with this kinda epic cover of one of the Led Zeppelin classics:



And original, which is imo one the greatest songs of all time:

If i haven't said it before, I love The Cure so when 311 did a cover of one of my favorite songs, I fell in love with it instantly. My pick is 311's version of Lovesongs by The Cure

i just went into my itunes lookng for some awesome covers that i used to listen to. found out my brother nuked the whole thing plus my original files for my entire music library and replaced it with his shitty ass nicky minaj bullshit and whatnot. im gonna beat his fucking ass when i see him! anyways sadly my pick will still be on hiatus due to this very unfortunate situation. that is all

I was actually thinking of The Big Pink's cover of Love Song myself. Need to decide on what to actually put up for my song.

Seems to be a shortage of entries this month though... what happened to everyone?

Dunno, maybe they are sleeping? 8D

Okey my pick is Nothing Else Matters by Apocalyptica. When speaking of covers Apocalyptica does it the best. Plus the music video is very beautiful.

Only 10 entries so far?? Well, I suppose we could do a double pick again.. it would be a shame not to have more songs in this playlist. ^.^
So you can post another entry until tomorrow night if you wish.
New anthology project for May will be posted on Sunday.

Hell yeah, second round!!!

And awesome pick Lotus! As I already said, I love that song.

Here's my second pick.



Original


The music in the two versions is a lot different as well as the meaning of the lyrics. I very much prefer Aretha's version, but the original ain't bad either.

Oooh, second round. I actually forgot about this cover somehow, which disappoints me.

Original by Brenda Lee (although it was done later by Pet Shop Boys and Elvis amongst others)

technically not a cover maybe, although i think it is, keeps the spirit of it at least, just adds words to an instrumental...plus it's the Beasties...cmon

Added the last song to the list now and I don't accept anymore songs in to the list, even if you are posted it earlier to this thread.

I'll send the completed collection to all participants after I am back from Estonia ( yeah I know I'm almost living there xD)

So big thank you for you all and also huge thanks for your patience, I was so absent whole last month and that caused minor delays for updating the song list. Still sorry for that.

You can still post comments to this thread.
