    As the title of the thread say's. What cover version would you deem as good as or better than the original.

    I think this has to be up there with the best. :50:

    To be honest, I could have picked a few more songs he has covered.

    Just a few but there are tons of great covers out there.

    My band done a cover of a Saul Williams song, "List of Demands". Anyone heard it?( the original not the cover. sadly only got a live recording, but if anyone wants to compare it to the original feel free to ask)

    Absolutely :) Even Noel agreed. Afterall Noel loved this cover so much that he actually gave Ryan the rights to the song cos he said ryan found the sound for the song that he never could with Oasis. I think this version is soooooo much better. Not to say the Oasis original isnt a good song just this version does it for me more :50:

    Yeah, Noel prefers that one so much that when he plays it he plays that version.

    Personally I thought it was terrible, don't get me wrong Ryan Adams is a good singer but Wonderwall's charm is the bit of rough voice, Adams sings it too clean.
