Growing up, I often heard the argument against modern art (including music) that it wasn’t “real art”. But what is “real art”? What is “real music”? That answer is going to be different depending on whom you ask.

In conclusion, it seemed that these specific cover versions are preferred over the originals. Yet, the reasons for this are extremely diverse. They range from an emotional response, vocal quality, to instrumental and arrangement. Thus, covers can be seen as better than the originals for a vast variety of reasons. However, this article provides the evidence of three songs and two corresponding covers. This doesn’t provide a full view of all songs or all covers. I think it does offer an interesting point that cover songs are legitimate as a musical form. It also highlights that everyone has their own subjective tastes in music.
The simple answer to the long story is that I started a blog about covers and parodies because I wanted to share them with people. I want to write about songs that are unique because they aren’t the original.
