What artist should cover which song?!

I would really like to hear Fiona Apple sing my favorite song ever, "At Last" by Etta James

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

LeAnn Rimes could cover any song and make a good job of it. Unchained Melody has always been sung poorly, then i heard LeAnn's version........WOW!

lol LeAnn does have a great voice.

I don't know about who should cover what song, but why is "Long and Winding Road" suddenly being covered to death? Corrs did it last year, now Gareth Gates did it...

I don't like covers. try to be creative and make a new song.

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I would like to cover "Children of the Revolution" myself. One day.

I tell you, 99% of all covers are rubbish. Guys like Puff Daddy, sorry P. Diddy are beeing called songwriters/Producers? what exactly has he ever done by himself? He just steal some 80's songs and add a rap to it. Same goes for my man Will Smith, sorry he's a useless musician. Boyzone, Atomic Kitten, Mase( good that he retired) A*Teens, Wyclef Jean, Shaggy and all those other artists that cannot make their own music. The music industry has sunk very low. The meaning with music is that it should develope and that people should come up with new ideas, new music and new songs, not just reapeat something that has already been said.

How do i get?

I agree with irma, although some covers can be nice (I loved Uptown girl by westlife ). It's funny sometimes to hear 3 or 4 versions of a song. I know 3 versions of Do you know where you're going to, and I have them all 3 on Kazaa, just for fun I play them behind each other sometimes

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

I think Celine Dion covered "At Last." It's one of my favorites too. I also liked Fiona Apple's version of "Across the Universe."

I very much like Sarah Brightman covers. For example, I love Dido, but I like Brightman's version of 'Here with me' much better. Same with Hooverphonic's 'Eden' and that says a hella lot since I'm a huge Hooverphonic fan. Then you have songs like Queen's 'Who wants to live forever' which I don't like at all in the original form, while Sarah's version is one of my all time favorites.
I haven't heard the original 'Dust in the Wind' yet, but I love Sarah's version.

Anyway, you got the point. lol


EDIT: I just heard the original 'Dust in the Wind' and, yet again, I like Sarah's version much better. I guess it's her voice that does it in combination with the general 'ethernalness' (is that a word?!) if you know what I mean.
