    hi Silver, 2 that right now come to suggestions are Michael Bolton's undesirable emasculation of The 4 Tops' brilliant, functional "attain Out, i'd be There". properly, perchance this can be a touch harsh, yet, it really is extremely 'orrible. the 2d is a few singer's conceal of the Dobie gray classic, "flow Away". It grants no longer something to the unique and the performance isn't as committed from the singer & musicians using the undeniable fact that's interior the unique. A waste of time. i do not even understand the call of the singer who covers it, and that i'm now unlikely to waste the ability to attempt to be certain - for this reason no links (sorry about that). For perfect conceal? Priest's version of the fairway Manalishi (with both-pronged Crown) knocked my ears off when I first heard it 30 years in the past. impressive potential! i changed into in teenage-heavy-metallic-youngster heaven when I heard that on Chicago FM radio. :-) For perfect offbeat conceal is pink Floyd's The Wall - the whole album - finished in bluegrass kind by ability of Luther Wright and the Wrongs. Preposterous, and somewhat a attain, yet especially pleasing and commonly wonderful.

    I agree with Clint. I recently asked a similar question and cited FOB's Love will tear us apart as an example.

    Not that it could ever ruin Joy Division's original, but it was still stupendously bad.

    Guns N' Roses - Knockin' on Heaven's Door

    I like the Dylan version just fine. But Axl Rose.....anything about Axl Rose bothers me, actually.

    Hillary Duff did a cover of the Who's My Generation and changed the lyrics! It was bad... really bad.

    It didn't completely ruin the Who for me, but it bothers me.
