What is your opinion of them? Are there covers by other artists/band that you have enjoyed listening to? Generally, do you prefer the originals or cover versions? Another band taking a song and putting their own spin on it can do wonders at times. Yeah, I've heard some horrible stuff but generally, if they're that bad, I can't even remember them. (a little ironic, perhaps but that's a good thing for my well being, I suppose) Anyway, examples of how a particular band can make me find something else that I don't in the original versions would be Sonic Youth's cover of Superstar (featured in Juno) and My Morning Jacket's take on Elton John's Rocket Man. Rocket Man, Superstar or any of the acts mentioned above are not acts that I would normally be listening to but these two alternative versions of the songs, I love. Another cool way of finding covers or just getting into "new" bands, is listening to a cover of a given song made my a band you like. While I had always heard of Deep Purple, I never really tried to listen to any of their work, mostly because I couldn't get into similar hard rock/heavy metal of that kind. (Dio and related acts) When I listened to Opeth's cover of Soldier of Fortune though, I changed my mind. :) Discuss.
