What’s in a good cover you say? Well my experience leads me to believe it’s a few things. First off what it is not, is just taking someone else’s song and trying to reproduce it exactly like the original. Basically you’ve worked hard to create an original sound for your band right? So taking another song and reconstructing it in your new fresh style is generally the idea…I think one of my favorite cover songs is Devo’s version of “Satisfaction”. Here we have this theory of the cover song expanded one step further…Take a famous band’s style and reproduce a different famous band’s hit song…Thanks to Mr. Fink for the link.
