Placebo – Running Up that Hill

“Running Up that Hill” is the most popular song of Kate Bush’s earlier years. Originally it was named “A Deal with God”, but was later changed due use of the word “God”. Giving the song a new name was successful, as well as giving it a new versions. The British Placebo covered the track and released it originally on the bonus disc of their album “Sleeping with Ghosts”, and soon included it on another one: “Covers”.

Walk off the Earth – Somebody That I Used to Know

It’s not a secret that the Belgian-Australian musician Gotye wrote “Somebody That I Used to Know” inspired by his own experiences with relationships. But six months later, five other people covered, sang, and played the same song, which figuratively illustrates that we all have these particular experiences with relationships.
These five are Walk off the Earth – a Canadian indie band. The way they played this cover is more than impressive: ten hands on a single guitar. Beautiful.

Stevie Wonder – All I Do

This song isn’t widely known as а cover. The fact is, it was originally writen by Stevie Wonder himself (with some collaboration). So is it actually a cover? We’d like to think so. Stevie, a 16 years old teenager, wrote the song in 1966. But then Tammi Terrell was the one who recorded the first and original version of it.
10 years after Tammi’s death, in 1980, Stevie Wonder recorded his own “All I Do” and made it one of his classic songs.

Muse – Feeling Good

That’s right, we’ve already presented another version of 1965’s “Feeling Good“. Some of you may think the Nina Simone’s cover is unattainable, but that’s not completely true. Muse made from this track one of their biggest hits, and it was also claimed by many for one of the greatest covers ever. Not to mentions the awesome music video, which can be seen here.
