    hi guys ,

    we generally believe that an original is always better in any way to a copycat ? but i believe sometimes in the world of music .... covers can sound a whole lot better ... so tell me if you agree .. and name a few covers (and the bands who performed them) that got more attention and were generally considered better by you than the original songs

    my list is as follows :

    1 WILD WORLD by Mr.Big .... i think his version managed to better the original (which was pretty awesome too ) by CAT stevens .
    2 KNOCKING ON HEAVENS DOOR by GNR . the bob dylan one was pretty dull dont you think ?
    3 I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU by whitney houston ... way way better than dolly parton's version .... i dont think whitney's version could be more perfect .
    4 FAITH by limp bizkit .. ok ok ... so george michaels awesome ... but limp bizkit really really screwed it soooo much that it became cool ... dont you guys think so too ?
    5.WORDS by boyzone ... i dunno what you guys think here ... but i think their version was better sounding than the beegees ....
