Songs other people sing

I've never really liked covers as much as originals. Until I heard a little redhead blow the doors off of The Weight.

Then I started hearing covers all over the place that I loved better than the originals. Clapton's blistering rendition of Don't Think Twice, It's Alright, Motley Crue surprising the piss out of me with their Elvis cover.

I've even found myself liking covers of songs I never liked in the first place.

My brain got rolling down the cover rabbit hole this morning because of a Ben Marwood cover that I LOVE.

I'll tell you an embarrassing secret. The first time I heard it I thought he was covering Frank Turner. Then I thought, maybe Frank is covering Ben.

I know now that I am so fucking wrong.

In either case, I like both of their versions better than the original. I like Ben's a wee bit more.

I have to go drive a boat now. I will check in on comments throughout the day. Post a link of some of your favorite covers in the comments, or tweet them at me, or FB, or telekinesis. Whatever.

Yes, I will judge you.

Titty sprinkles!
