    1. What re-recording or variation of a classic song do you believe beats the original?

      Did a lot of comparisons tonight, and I have to say I feel the variation of “Why Don’t You Do Right” sung by Amy Irving in Who Framed Roger Rabbit holds far more impact than the original...

      Did a lot of comparisons tonight, and I have to say I feel the variation of “Why Don’t You Do Right” sung by Amy Irving in Who Framed Roger Rabbit holds far more impact than the original recordings done by Peggy Lee, or even many artists after.

      What redo/variation of a classic still holds you speechless?

    2. What's your favorite song cover?

      As the title says. Bonus points for covers that really surprised you. My personal favorite is Sugar Ray's cover of The Steve Miller Band's Abracadabra. It's super faithful to the source material...

      This is is a strange one because it completely changes the mood and not even in an unexpected way. Well, it is unexpected. But given the lyrics (unaltered), it feels much more tone appropriate.

      Side note- Max Martin Wrote and co-produced this song and many of britneys stuff, and taylor swift, and many other #1/top10 spots. Mad.

      All About That [upright]bass
      Who doesn't love upright base?

      Redbone | Childish Gambino
      I actually heard this one before the orig so this might be a bias for me. But when I finally got around to listening to the orig, it felt empty. Turns out i love those trailing high notes and it wasn't entirely the same feeling without it

      That's all I've got for now but I bet a one or two sprung to mind for you
