    Seems like whatever version of the song you hear first is usually what one prefers. Of course there are a few exceptions...

    I had heard the Eagles version off Ol' 55 on the On The Border album and never really liked it. Then a few years ago I came across the original Tom Waits version which I love and obviously like more!


    Tom Waits original version

    Original (Written by Sia)

    There's another version by Josef Salvat that I prefer to Rihannas' version (can't bear that version) but I love Buffalo Tales' Cover the best.

    Ursine’s version of Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game is leaps and bounds better. It’s downright enchanting. Enjoy.

    Pretty much everything Elvis ever did. I had one professor who pointed out "Elvis didn't have an original bone in his body" and proceeded to rattle off an endless list of covers that Elvis did. Many of them shocked the class because they were so identifiable as Elvis numbers everybody thought he wrote them or at least was the first one to put out the single. Nope! But he sure knew how to make a song his own.

    Better than the original.... I dont think so as the original is a Hallmark

    But it is definitely a cover done well

    Adele's version of Make you feel my love is much better than Dylans

    Love the song but Pearl Jams version steals it for me.
