10 Cover Songs That Dramatically Change The Original

Sometimes a cover song is basically one artist’s karaoke version of another artist’s hit. This list is in recognition of musicians who are able to transform a hit into something else entirely.

1. Death Cab for Cutie — “All is Full of Love”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=q-n3vcMk-_w. youtube.com

Nothing compares to Bjork’s perfect pitch, but who knew this song would transform so well into a rock jam?

2. Mr. Little Jeans — “The Suburbs”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=eFKYHVfD2Zw. youtube.com

Hard to imagine wanting to make out to Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” — until now.

3. M. Ward — “Let’s Dance”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=mbxQ9bvdZgU. youtube.com / Via YouTube

David Bowie’s 1983 hit is barely recognizable. Let’s Dance? More like let’s light a single candle and write a love letter with ink made from our tears, amirite?

4. IYES — “Crazy in Love”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=zzb54fPR2Ho. youtube.com

As top YouTube commenter and major Bey fan says under this video, “I’m a massive B fan and I hate hearing covers but this is amazing.” Case closed.

5. Cake — “I Will Survive”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=7KJjVMqNIgA. youtube.com

John McCrea’s trademark deadpan take on this soulful jam somehow hits all the right notes. How he does it might be one of the biggest mysteries of the ’90s.

6. Tori Amos — “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=mRuTkB9L5jc. youtube.com

This list would not be complete without mention of America’s queen of ballad covers. It’s hard to pick one when she’s notable for covering the Rolling Stones, Joni Mitchell, Radiohead, Britney Spears…the list goes on and on. But if you’re a Tori fan, this one is a classic, bar none.

7. Britney Spears — “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=vF2l_rWdvDs. youtube.com

Speaking of Britney, remember when she covered the Rolling Stones?

8. Marilyn Manson — “Sweet Dreams”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=F7cPgonpbwo. youtube.com

Like him or hate him, Marilyn Manson made some bad ass covers.

9. The Suzan — “Paranoid”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZYFtPPDspuI. youtube.com

This Japan-pop quartet chills Kanye’s “Paranoid” right out. Barely recognizable, funny, and actually beautiful in its own way.

10. Lissie — “Pursuit of Happiness”

Video available at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=fqIFZFwMClE. youtube.com

Lissie’s guitar chops and strong voice turn Kid Cudi’s hazy summer jam into an anthem.
