    99% sure this thread exists somewhere in the past but seems like it’s a little too old. Title is self explanatory: which covers do you think are better than their original versions?

    IMO:
    Ben Platt, “Yoü and I” (Lady Gaga)
    Ben Platt, “Vienna” (Billy Joel)
    Miley Cyrus, “Heart of Glass (Live from the iHeart Festival)” (Blondie)
    Lorde, “Swingin Party” (The Replacements)

    Fiona Apple – Across The Universe

    the original (Beatles) is a sad, unfinished folk song and the cover is a transcendent, beautiful masterpiece.

    Lorde, “Swingin Party” (The Replacements)

    That cover is ethereal!

    I don’t expect many people to agree, but I think Lily Allen’s cover of “Somewhere Only We Know” is beautiful and better than the original version by Keane.
