PostSubject: Song Remakes?    Wed Feb 24, 2016 9:09 pm

Much of the time I don't care for remakes, especially if they are trying to make a carbon copy of the original song. The bands that change it up a bit, add their own style to it sometimes get my attention. My music taste tends to vary quite a bit, blues, rock, metal, country[older stuff], and a bunch of others. Heard this song today, am familiar with the original, and with the work of the band remaking it. Not everyone will agree..but I was quite impressed with it. Anyone else got a remake that has really taken them by surprise with how a band has put new life into something? P )

Miles Davis did a fine job with Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time.

Stokowski did a hell of a number on Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

Yeah I love the Disturbed cover. They like doing covers and do a good job. Remember they did Land of Confusion as well.

I will give a listen to all of these, Checkin out the Miles Davis, time after time now. All instrumental is a good way to go for some songs. For instrumental work Gary Hoey does an amazing job with Christmas carols.

Land of confusion definitely was a good one. I tend to like their version better than the original Phil Collins one. Twisted Evil

Richard Burley, I may not have the cultural background to appreciate the quality of the cover done here. As musical piece it is well done. For classical instrumental pieces, The 2 Cellos did a cover of Iron Maiden's The trooper, not to be missed!!

That was great! Very moving. Tocatta and Fugue in D minor has always been one of my favorite pieces.

I've a vinyl rendition of this by E. Power Biggs and listen it to it regularly. Never heard it scored for full orchestra until now. Thanks for sharing Richard.

Cool



Cheers,

RR

Speaking of Bach covers, Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra is where it's at for the Brandenburg Concertos.

Listening to elevator music and recognizing "Stairway To Heaven" always brings a smile to my face......

Cover tunes are the ultimate form of flattery, IMHO.....

You know something, you might be right.

This is one of those rare situations where an artist takes a song and makes it what it should have been, no offense to Dylan or anything... Cool

I remember some years ago, Metallica put out an album full of covers. "Whisky in the jar" and "turn the page" stood out well amongst them. Also the keystone companions albums from Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders are not to be missed if you like funk, blues and such.

I'm a big fan of Jerry, and he made a massive body of work in covers. Another album he worked on with David Grisman called shady grove is one of my favorites. All geared toward an "old timey" sound. Awesome collection of old songs, played with a wide variety of instruments.

Speaking of the man who sold the world,
Bowie's Pin Ups album is all covers and very good.

One of my favorite AC/DC songs is "Long Way to The Top". Lucinda Williams cover is excellent.

I was never a Nirvana fan in general of of this song, but I love Charles Bradley's super funky interpretation of this one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=047SDd3UCJE

His version of Heart of Gold is also terrific.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_37kdxtw8wY

I'm a jam band fan, they are all about the cover songs. Here's a recent release by Warren Hayes with Grace Potter doing "Gold Dust Woman". I like it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAhVcc89e_0

I'll take old country over new any day, but I do like this version a little better than George Jones'

That was a throw-away record by Bowie (fulfilling a label requirement), but that album is one of my favorites.

It is always intriguing for me to see the new perspective on something I have been accustomed to hearing one way for so long. As before, I tend to lean towards those putting their own unique style into a piece rather than a direct copy attempt. Glad to see so many putting up a variety of songs from Bach to Bowie. There are a lot on here I was not familiar with. Very Happy

Kudos to the OP, I really enjoyed this subject. Like All Along The Watchtower it seems many covers exceed or define the creative genius.
As well as Hendrix, one of my other favorites is The Sundays cover of the Stones Wild Horses.

Speaking of All Along The Watchtower...



The proverbial candle in the wind, Michael burned out too soon for my liking.  Sad

Huge fan of Michael Hedges. Saw him live 3 or 4 times and was always blown away. One concert Leo Kottke opened for him and they later played a duet on stage. Pure magic.

Very tragic his passing, and I still morn his loss.


Cheers,

RR

Thanks Bob and Sam, I am glad people are getting some good stuff out of this thread.

That Michael Hedges cover I have never heard before. Very well done!!! I will be looking up more from him.

Like Gonzo I usually don't care for remakes. Most of the ones I've heard are an insult to the original artist's work but I give credit where credit is due and The Sound of Silence remake by Disturbed is not only well done but I found it quite moving. The intensity of the message was powerful and captivating. In my opinion this has to be one of best remakes ever. I think it ranks right beside Whitney Huston's remake of Dolly Parton's I will Always Love You. Smile
