Top 10 Great Cover Songs: "We are all in search of those few songs when the artist has perfected the lyrics, rhythm, and sound to bring us something special. Often this comes from a new twist on an old song. Whether it be in the studio, at a live concert, or amoungst friends, there are very few lead singers that have not covered their favorite tunes. In order to reach musical perfection all elements of a recording must align. In many of these selections the record pace was a bit slow or fast, the acoustics a little dry, or maybe one version just outshines another. One thing is constant and that is all of these songs have great lyrics and tell a vivid story. I have compiled a list of the Top 10 Greatest Cover Songs."
