PostPosted: Sat Feb 07, 2009 12:30 pm    Post subject: Best Youtube Cover Songs

You know what i'm talking about it... Youtube versions of songs that are made by virtual nobodies but sounds as good and sometimes better than the originals! (i bet a number of you have done you're own version of a song and put it on youtube).
Here are few of my favorites:

Just Friends - (Musiq Cover by Paul Dateh)

Hallelujah - (Jeff Buckley Cover by Some European Dudes)

Umbrella - (Rihanna Acoustic Cover by MarieDigby)

Apologize - (OneRepublic Cover by Alejandro Manzano and Daniel Manzano)

Marie Digby is hot. Her original stuff is good too.

Here's an interesting one. The song is a cover of a Weezer b-side titled
"I Just Threw Out The Love Of My Dreams."

It's recorded by Reach, a Japanese band, and was released on a Weezer tribute album.

Anyway, the video is not of Reach, unfortunately, so in that regard it doesn't really meet the qualifications for this topic. Instead it is some kids lip-synching to it (It's a terribly amateurish vid, but there's some kinda cool stop motion mixed in).

I really like Reach's cover of this tune, so I thought I'd share it.
