Re: Covers that are better than the originals!

The Simon and Garfunkel track made me think of this...I haven't played this for some time ..I have the original of course being a prog nut. Not sure how anyone could best S and G at their own game but truly a great version.

Anyone Who Had a Heart by Dionne Warwick was released in November 1963:



A very similar though somewhat screechy cover by Cilla Black was released 31 January 1964 and was a #1 hit sensation for three weeks in a row in the United Kingdom:



Another very similar cover by Atomic Kitten was released in 2008:



They clearly didn't have a clue though as to live delivery of the song. I mean smiling and wiggling when they were supposed to be pouring their hearts out? Whoever coached them on delivery should have been flogged. Well they were pretty anyway....
