Cover Versions

Yesterday I watched film which included a cover version of The Pretenders „Brass in Pocket“. Original video can be watched here.

Where I’m not totally against cover versions, e.g. I just love it when one of my favorite musicians interprets a (classic) song, but some songs where perfect when first officially performed and simply don’t get any better. And this includes the entire catalogue of The Pretenders. This laid back, sort of non-chalant singing by Chrissie Hynde cannot be topped.

Btw, this is also true for any songs by Annie Lennox, Alison Moyet, Sarah McLachlan and lots more.
