I’m fully aware that I’m going to get slammed for this. That for every song on this list, someone will say, “SACRILEGE! THE ORIGINAL IS UNTOUCHABLE!” I give you this knowing that’s going to happen.

I also know that without the original, the cover wouldn’t exist. That, however, doesn’t mean I wouldn’t rather hear the cover.

Every time I tell someone I like this version better, a little part of them likes me a lot less. I’m sorry, at least I’m honest.
