Sometimes an artist releases a great song and you can’t imagine it sounding any better until you hear someone else performing it, or an artist releases a song and you don’t realise just how beautiful it is until someone else performs it. A cover can add more layers to a song and some just give it a more modern and fresh vibe. We’ve compiled a list of some cool cover songs, that may sound better……….. or worse, hahaha!

Even though the original version is awesome, Lianne’s sounds much better and the words are more clearer!

There is no good quality video of her performing this song live, this will have to do. I really love Erykah’s take on this song. She performed it when she was in Johannesburg and it will forever be a favourite.

A lot of artists have covered this song but Etta James made it her signature song and it was hard to imagine anyone covering it any better but Beyonce gave it a fresh take and further proved that she is vocally gifted.

Some people think she ruined the song for them but I love this cover. Miley has vocal chords hey! I bet it was awesome for Dolly Parton to see her goddaughter performing this.
