I’m getting sick of the songs at work, which rotate amongst a selection of company-approved schlock. But there’s one song that I haven’t tired of yet, and it’s Matt Weddle’s cover of “Hey Ya”, by OutKast. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the original. But somehow, the dynamism of MW’s cover, the way he brings down the chorus in volume, in contrast to 99.9% of pop songs, and the sheer electricity of his version – I have to say, I almost like it better than OutKast’s.
Any songs whose covers you prefer to the originals?
