Cover songs better than the original

I would suggest Pictures at an Exhibition by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, but I’m not going to post the versions for comparison because none of you have the attention span to sit through 80 minutes of music :stuck_out_tongue:


#284

I’ve got an Atari Teenage Riot live album that’s a single 40-minute track of industrial noise. You sit through that and then complain about attention span.


#285

Also, I was on a CHVRCHES trip the other week, and was reminded of this

and this


#286

I’ll see that and raise you Cage’s Variations VII, which is 60 minutes of household appliance noise.


#287

I’ve been to see Einsturzende Neubauten live.


#288

Ah, you win. I’ve never seen the full band, just F.M. Einheit (playing with Stephen O’Malley).


#289

I saw them after Einheit left, it was the Perpetuum Mobile tour. So they’d mellowed out, but you know, NU Unrhue was reconfiguring a table wired up to the sound system to hit cables at one point, dragging bricks and metal rods at another, and spraying a bunch of soft drink bottles wrapped in cling film on a turntable with compressed air at one point. Rudolf’s drum kit was giant cogs and sheet steel, and they did also play a collection of drainage pipes for one song.


#290

I do think that’s the type of music you need to experience live. I would never honestly choose listen to an Einsturzende Neubauten album, but watching Einheit attacking breezeblocks with an electric drill was mesmerising. Likewise Cage, I wouldn’t buy an album of Variations VII or Cartridge Music or whatever, but I would jump at the chance of hearing any of them again in concert.


#291

Great version.
Not better though, the cover was never used in The Hunger :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#292

I usually don’t like piano covers of metal songs cause they usually just play everything as they would with a guitar and it’s just a contest of who plays faster and it ends up sounding boring, but this arrangement is spectacular…


#293

That is lovely.

Although inevitably it makes me think of this.


#294

I love this Frightened Rabbit cover of Whole of the Moon:

And it’s not on YouTube sadly, but I saw Karine Polwart doing an amazing cover of John Farnham’s You’re The Voice last year, and I really want her to release it but she hasn’t


#295

Love Primus.


#296

#297

Prefer this one… by far =P

Atlhough the washing machine is pretty awesome too =P


#298

please tell that was the most convenient clip you could find and not because you actually watched a private school movie about vampires.


#299

the CHVRCHES cover of Bela Lugosi’s dead was recorded for the Vampire Academy soundtrack, it’s not on either of their albums.

Also, don’t judge me.
