My views on cover songs have been documented. Most of the time, just give me the original.
That doesn't mean there are not covers that I enjoy. Here are two.
First is Lita Ford's cover of Alice Cooper's "Only Women Bleed." I love Alice and his original version is fantastic. Lita's cover is spot on and it's nice to hear this song sung in a female voice.
Next is Mindy Smith's version of Dolly Parton's "Jolene." Now, nobody can touch Dolly. I like this cover. It's slower and more haunting than the original.
