Songs you didn't know were covers until...

3 posts in this topic

So my roommate and I were in the car the other day and a song came on that completely took him aback. Not because the song was great or horrible, but because he realized that one of his favorite songs was not an original (can't remember what it was because I thought it was terrible).

But has there ever been a time where you were a little surprised to hear an older version of a tune you always thought was original?

2 that came to the top of my head were

I Love Rock and Roll (originally by The Arrows, covered by Joan Jett)

and

China Girl (originally by Iggy Pop, covered by David Bowie)

Iggy and Bowie co-wrote that. Just an FYI if you didn't know....I've never heard Iggy's version.

Yeah, I read after i found out that Bowie released his own version to help out Iggy's financial troubles.

    • Yeah.... a single person of a religion encompassing over a billion people on the planet.  I don't see social media blowing up with the Muslim community in the western part of the world denouncing these attacks.  When Dillon Roof happened, there were a lot of Christians that denounced him immediately and repeatedly.  The point is that effective change for this extremism must come from within those communities.   The tide is turning, but people within those communities still feel fear of reprisal from within their culture for saying anything that could be construed as aligning with anti-Muslim stances.  Those dangers shouldn't be summarily dismissed for those that are brave enough to take this stand. I also stated that the media needs to do their part in accurately portraying these denouncements.  What I see instead is the media propping up ridiculous caricatures of people rather than your average person.
