You see it all the time- one artist covers another artist's song, and the fans of the original come out in droves to talk about how much better the original is. Sometimes they're just politely saying "Yeah, this is good, but nothing tops the original," and sometimes they're going "OMFG how dare this ..... band ruin a perfectly good song?!" But, I'm sure there's just as many people who enjoy other artists' renditions of songs better than the original, so, post them here! Here's mine: 'Heart of Steel' by Manowar, covered by Thunderstone Just because I prefer the vocals, really. 'Purple Haze' by Jimi Hendrix, covered by Winger This is just one I happened to grow up listening to for years before finally hearing the original on the radio one day. And, I'll go ahead and say, the only way I enjoy listening to Rings of Saturn is if its one of those 8-bit Remixes... just because I have fun trying to imagine what the hell kind of NES game would have a soundtrack like that.
