    A lot of great songs or not so great songs have been covered. Some of the covers were really good and some were so-so at best. This is an example of where I think the cover is better than the original.

    The original

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92HjH1GG3ro&feature=related"]YouTube- Donovan - Season of the Witch



    The cover

    Can you think of any?

    While I love the original by Jimmy Ruffin, Joan Osborne owns this song now. Having the Funk Brothers as back up is a bonus.

    Original is by Gary Wright and the remake is by Joan Osborne. Lady has a way of making it hers.

    I loved this song when Bruce Hornsby did it but after hearing Pam Tillis do it, I like that cover better.

    The original is a Bob Dylan composition. I believe it was recorded acoustically but I couldn't find a copy of it anywhere- so you'll just have to take my word for it.

    Original:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skUJ-B6oVDQ"]YouTube- Coldplay - 'Fix you' music video
    I think this version is kind of cheesy

    Cover:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gosIuO1HqEg"]YouTube- I will try to fix you

    This version usually makes me want to cry. I think it is because of the age of the singer changes the meaning of the lyrics alot.

    Peace Out,

    I couldn't find the Dylan version on Youtube but he often called it the first rap song. In that spirit I think this version though a little odd I think it is appropriate. Not neccessarily better or worse. Just different:

    I heard this song by alot of artists, but I never really knew the original artist until one day I was in a used record store and there it was - by Kris Kristofferson.

    Here's the one that most people are familiar with.
