No not a 70s cop show catchphrase, but are there any cover versions of songs that you think are better than the original?
The first one I thought of is definitely better in the cover version – Rock On. The original by David Essex is pretty lame, but the Def Leppard cover version is seriously sexy!
Another one that totally rocks out more than the original (although I love the original too) is Major Tom (Coming Home). The cover version by Shiny Toy Guns totally outstrips the original by Peter Schilling.
It’s rare for me to prefer a cover versin, but these two blow the originals out of the water. 🙂
