FMD 4/9/21: Disappointing Covers

I was perusing youtube for some new music last night and came across a cover of a song I like ("To Love Somebody") by an artist I enjoy (Jade Bird), and thought, "alright, this should be great!"

It was not.

Anyway, I don't recall us talking about disappointing covers before, and also we haven't had a FMD post for a bit, and so here's a thing for today.

Edited to add: apparently there's a "bad covers" tag and a "covers played so much worse" tag, so maybe we have done this before. I'll check it out later. I'm not undoing all this great writing I've done in this post so far, just because it might have been wrong. That would be way too fully baked.

FMD 1-25-19: Cover Me

With the Weezer "pointless covers done exactly the same as originals" album coming out (I kid! I kid!), and with the fact that I don't know that we've really talked covers for a while, I thought maybe this would be a good topic for the week.

What's your favorite cover song?
What song that was covered do you much prefer the original of?
What song did you not know was a cover until much later?
What song would you like to see covered?
Which are the best and which are the most pointless covers? You know, that type of thing.

Anyway, drop a list, and give us some cover-age!
