We all have those songs we hear and stick with us over the years. They may not be your favorite song, but you still enjoy them. Then you don’t hear them for a while, and all of the sudden you hear a familiar sound. You recognize it, but it’s different. You're saying to yourself, “Hey wait, I know this song!”, but it is not the original artist. It’s a cover song. You decide if you like it and how much. The key to a great cover song, in my opinion, begins with the original being good. Then, the new artist has to do something amazing with it. You should still be able to recognize it, but it needs the covering artists style applied, making it theirs. I love a good cover song and here are the most successful attempts of artists preforming the cover.
