- Covers which are better than the original song
Hurt. Johnny cash but written by Trent Reznor NIN would get my vote!
That is effing awesome!
Some more, from me…
And, their version of Live and Let Die is sooooo much better than the original!

Tainted love , Soft Cell rather better than the Gloria Jones original , however she does score a bonus point for crashing the car in which Marc Bolan died .
You’ve got the love by Florence and the machine I originally thought blew the original by Candi Statton out of the water however I now don’t think that is the case and prefer the original .
Dolly Partons original Jolene is a classic that The White Stripes certainly didn’t improve IMO .Posted 4 years ago
No just no. Johnny Cash had one of those voices that can never be beaten on his own songs.
Really? The first time I heard Mark & Lard play it on the afternoon show on Radio 1 I stopped in my trackes & almost shed a tear…
Tainted love , Soft Cell rather better than the Gloria Jones original
Taste is a funny thing, the Soft Cell version of that is at least my 3rd favourite version of that song, behind Gloria Jones & Marylin Manson. I’ve not heard any other versions so until I do it’s unlikely to get bumped further down the list…Posted 4 years agomrben100Member
Jeff buckleys version of hallelujah – think as with cash and NIN, leonard cohen has gone record saying buckleys version is better (but i’ll stand corrected on that). First time i ever heard it was radio 1 playing it on the fiirst anniversary of 9/11 – sat in car park to listen to it in its entirety, then went straight to andys records to buy the album.Posted 4 years ago
