Blues, Jazz & Soul : 1 song, 2 versions

1 song, 2 versions

Easy thread:

Post 2 versions of the same song.

It could be the original and a cover; it could be two remakes.

The genre of music doesn't matter.

Feel free to comment, otherwise, 1 song, 2 versions, please. Thanks.

Peggy, I didn't know Faith Evans did a cover of True Colors. At first, I thought Phil Collins had sung that song first, then I found out years later it was Cyndi Lauper's song.

"I rope-a-dope the evil with righteous bobbin' and weavin'..."

Re: 1 song, 2 versions

I totally agree with you! I listen to his remake the most. I love whatever instruments he was doing in that song. I actually thought it was his song at first, lol.

Re: 1 song, 2 versions

LOL. even Mariah Sang over Cherrelle's original beat because she had the same producer


I've been trying to use Audacity and splice and dice the 2 versions to mix it as a duet

but i've had no luck because the volumes don't match on my files

Some youTuber mashed them together and even incorporated a few elements of the instrumentation to palmer's cover
