Cover songs are a crap shoot. Forever compared with the originals, you'll always have dissenters and purists who prefer the original versions of songs. That's often entirely founded. However, sometimes a cover song comes along that's so magically good, you can't help but love it – sometimes even more than the OG version. These are some of the top covers ever created – with, admittedly, a few of my personal favorites tangled in there somewhere. What? I never claimed to be an unbiased writer, stalkers.
1. Sleeping at Last, “Chasing Cars”
This cover version of Snow Patrol's yearning, pleading love song is the initial inspiration behind this post. Sleeping at Last is worth a listen no matter what, but Ryan O'Neal's voice taking on this tune is just beyond.
