To me there's no contest, Nightwish kicks ass at any rate and here they took a so-so song and made it great.

Eva Cassidy for the win. Sting's was booooring.

Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I see what you did there Girly.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Original (Reznor) Remade (Cash)



Hurt- Johnny Cash





Or

Hurt - Trent Reznor





My vote = Johnny Cash. You can just -feel- the pain the shame of the things he's done in his life, in his version. Where as Trent sounds like hes just discovering something might be wrong. Johnnys just sounds more sincere and real.

Hendrix's was a cover.

Song: All Along the Watchtower

My Pick: There's a reason people generally don't realize Hendrix's version was a cover. Big Grin

Don't know if Jackson's is the original, but which would you pick?





-OR-





I'll pick the last one.....if I have to.
I think I just realized I'm not a fan of either Confused

Anarchy In U.K: Sex Pistols vs Megadeth

Original



V.S
Cover




Megadeth wins clearly. It's faster, has a lot more power and turns the solos into something remarkable. Dave is a lot more aggressive than Rotten, and the funny thing is that Rotten himself sings along in the choir.

Song: The Weight




VS




My Pick: Nobody should ever ever try to cover this song. Not ever. Never. If the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers can't pull it off, neither can you. Tongue

Song: Hallelujah




VS




My Pick: Buckley. Dude was dead months later and sings it like he saw that shit coming. It is his goddam swan song. ... Leonard yet lives.
