Rules for covers
Jan 07, 2003, 12:05
There's a quote from the movie 'crossroads':

'that ain't the way the song goes.. you got to take the music some place else.. take it past where ya found it.'

Amen. If you can't do something different witha cover, don't bother. Dare I say The Bangles' Hazy Shade of Winter made me look at the song a new way...?

Best cover in my life: Tori Amos doing Smells Like Teen Spirit. It's a total revelation...slow, soulful, dark and scary. A mate did it her way at one of his gigs and the crowd didn't know whether to applaud or throw things.
