So continues our cover theme week. I think that the natural, but misguided, instinct when covering a great song is to try and be faithful to the original. But even bar bands can do faithful covers. So today's post is a nod to originality, even in mimicry. Some of these covers merely employ different melody or instrumentation, while others are not even identifiable with the original song. But they're all different. Again, feel free to post your favorite covers in the comments!
