The song in the final scene of The Big Lebowski is a cover of a Rolling Stones song.

I sure as hell didn't know that I'm Every Woman wasn't a Whitney Houston original until the Kevin Smith Prince story.

"Chaka Mad?" "Chaka REAL Mad."

The Motorhead version of "Hellraiser" was released after the Ozzy version, but Lemmy co-wrote the song, which puts it in one of those funny gray areas. (Also the Motorhead version is way better.)

My wife just found this out a few weeks ago. I was listening to a Bowie playlist I created on Spotify and after the song ended she admitted she had no idea the Nirvana tune was a cover.
for years i thought i had just imagined the NIN version of this song.

THIS IS A JOURNEY SONG?!?!



I think being that this is a 1992 recording, the one I'm more familiar with. I had forgotten about it until this version of it showed up on the smooth jazz / rnb station here about a week ago or so

I already thought it was weird that there was such jealousy from Coolio when this song...


... more or less completely eclipsed this song...



... but was really weirded out when I realized that was just making minor changes to the lyrics of this song.

A lot of hip-hop is like that. Though it makes Coolio's initial beef with Al (they've made nice since then) more than a tad hypocritical.

I didn't know that Marilyn Manson did covers of Tainted Love and Personal Jesus until I bought his greatest hit album.

It's not a cover but I nearly shit a brick when I realized The Faint's Southern Belles in London Sing is literally B-Movie's Remembrance Day. Like, down to the fucking minute long intro of random noises. Like, to the point where I'm not sure how this wasn't legally actionable.

Seriously. Name a successful rap song from 1985-2005 and there's an 80% chance you could find the 70s song they lifted half their jam from.

I know everyone digs his version of "Sweet Dreams", but the best song cover by Marilyn Manson is "Down In The Park", originally by Tubeway Army. He also does a pretty good job with "Golden Years" (David Bowie tune) and "I Put A Spell You" (various folks).

The Marilyn Manson cover of "This Is Halloween" is also fantastic but I'm not even sure if I'd count it. I guess it is cover, technically.

Same idea with Tricky's "Hell Is Round The Corner" and Portishead's "Glory Box". (Musically, not lyrically.)

I'm dangerously out the loop as far as a lot of 70s music goes, so it was a while before I found out one of my favorite Dexy's Midnight Runners' songs was a cover:





Still prefer the Kevin Rowland's vocals.

I technically already knew this song was a cover, but I was going nuts the other day because something was playing in my pub and I definitely recognized the bouncy melody but not the instrumentation. Turned out is was the Allman Brothers' original instrumental "Jessica"; I'm familiar with the TMBG version off the Why Does The Sun Shine EP. I looked it up and apparently Phish covered it in the same year as well. Huh.

I'm surprised you never saw that in the movies or something. It's a good montage song. (e.g. the road trip scene in Field of Dreams)

I agree, I think the fiddle and the falsetto vocals make that song, I'm always slightly disappointed when I hear the Van version playing somewhere.

Here's another suspicious Portishead one:

Deep Water vs Tonight You Belong To Me

For years I believed Jeff Buckley's cover of "Hallelujah" was an original. To be fair, it is overwhelmingly the best version of the song!

Not my own realization but I have talked to plenty of people over the years who think "The Nurse Who Loved Me" from A Perfect Circle's album Thirteenth Step is an original. It sure as shit ain't. It's a Failure song, one of the most underrated band of the 90s, from their album Fantastic Planet, one of the most underrated albums of the 90s.

As a small child in 90’s Texas, I heard Travis Tritt’s version before the Eagles. My brain still shamefully equates it as the “original.”

I just found out that The Damned's "Alone Again Or" is a cover of proto-punk/garage rock band Love.

As featured in Bottle Rocket. Yeah, the original is a great track.

Ah, ok. Thinking of the wrong record, apparently. But I knew they did one that was all covers.

That whole Love album (Forever Changes) is well worth hearing. If you liked "Alone Again Or" you'll like the rest.

There so many examples of this. I went through a funk phase for a while, much longer after I went through a rap phase (I still listen to both genres, they're in my repertoire now) and as I was listening to all these funk bands, I was like, oh, all the hip hop of the '90s sampled all these bands from the '70s (or whenever they were from).

I was going to post individual links, but this webpage did that for me. Snoop's debut album has a track that heavily lifts from Bernard Wright's tune "Haboglabotribin." I realized this because I had bought a Bernard Wright CD years after I bought the Snoop Dogg cd.

There are just too many examples to name.

Listen to funk, kids. It's good for you.

edit: I have "Computer Games" too, by George Clinton (the one that has "Atomic Dog"). Overall, pretty fun album. Though I like the early Parliament and Funkadelic stuff the best.
