    Curious to see if anyone out there has come across covers of songs you think are better than the originals.

    One that comes to mind is Ryan Adam's cover of Wonderwall



    Another more recent (and not to knock the "Ga") is a country cover of Born This Way by Little Big Town

    I'm going with Janis Joplin's cover of Big Mama Thornton's "Ball and Chain." Janis does a great job of covering other artists.

    Bob Dylan's voice makes my flesh crawl, so I think all Dylan song cover versions are better than the originals.

    Kinda sappy, I know, but the Glee cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" really gets to me. There were not a hell of a lot of boy-to-boy love songs when I was in high school, so this version has a lot of resonance (and to think it appeared on Fox!)

    I won't say I like this version better, but I do prefer it for certain moods......like workout music.

    I can't believe you posted this! This is my favorite remake of all time. The music to the original version was too carefree for the lyrics in my opinion. Love this version!
