covers that got it right

Cover songs are a part of music. Most of the time we hear a cover version of an already very good song and afterwards we wish we hadn't. But every so often, an artist comes along that does the song justice and delivers a version of a song that is just as good, if not better than the original. Tune into this episode to hear a selection of some of the cover versions that got it very, very right.
