In a Musical Mood

So I was thinking–what are the best covers out there?  I mean, there are tons of awful remakes, but some artists are able to get it right.  Here are some of my faves. (Yes, the remakes are kinda old too–but y’all know me–good music is timeless to me, lol).

Am I Dreaming?

Atlantic Starr (1980)

Old Skool, featuring Xscape and Keith Sweat (1998)

Slow Jam

Midnight Star (1983)

Usher, featuring Monica (1997)


The Beatles (1965)

EnVogue (1992)


Samantha Sang (with Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees on the background)  (1977)

Destiny’s Child (2001)

These are just a few, and both versions of each are great!! What are your fave remakes?  Who do you think did it as good or better than the original?

  1. My favorite got it’s title recently. It’s Bob Marley’s “Is This Love” covered by Corrine Bailey Rae. I can listen to it all day. It’s perfect especially with the tragedy that happened in her life. It reminds me the true definition of love and that it’s real.


  2. I love Tamia’s cover of “Love Me in a Special Way” by DeBarge. I also love Mary’s cover of “A Dream” by DeBarge ( or maybe I just love DeBarge). But Bey did a decent cover of “Wishing on a Star” and Angie Stone did great on Simply Red’s “Holding Back the Years”. I’ll keep thinking!
