For next week’s edition of the multimedia incursion, I’m plundering the plethora of cover versions floating around here. In order to limit the selections to a manageable number, I employed the following proscriptions: the originals are all familiar rock-and-roll songs (not standards or classical pieces) and the cover versions are all markedly divergent (in style, instrumentation, and/or language, et al.) from those originals.
There will be two winners, so please choose one from Column A and one from Column B. The original artists are listed in the polls, but the artists and nature of the cover versions are going to be a surprise. Polls close at 10AM EST (GMT -5) on Monday, 10 November.
Vote Early, Vote Often!
Vote On Time, Vote Once!!
Bonus Factoid: Celine Dion is responsible for the world’s worst cover version, a poll of music experts has decided. See the article at BBC News.
