MUSICK (or the question of cover versions)

Big welcomes to

; I hope you enjoy yourself and decide to stick around!

I keep hearing that cover versions are a waste of time and that artists should focus on producing their own music…

Utter bullshit. I’m sorry but it just is, there are some wonderful cover versions out there, amongst all the absolute shite, and I decided today to share five of my absolute favourites with you:

Mark’s Five Top Covers

I was going to do a mini-review of each song but I thought I’d let you have a listen first and see what you thought before my ramblings begin.

I’m also going to be sending you some piss funny covers too (as I love them as well) but for now enjoy the class.

Of these five I can safely say that three are far superior to the original song, one is probably better and one is nowhere near as good. Any guesses for what falls where?
