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)
Midnight Star (1983)
Usher, featuring Monica (1997)
The Beatles (1965)
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?
