We tripped the light fandango

Wednesday, March 12, 2014
We sometimes play “Which is Better” here on the blog. Cover versions of songs are sometimes more popular than the original. There are plenty of lists on the subject of covers that were hits. I like seeking out the more cringe worthy covers for fun.

I played the Everly Brother’s cover of A Whiter Shade Of Pale to Diane. She shared Engelbert Humperdink’s cover with me. According to Wikipedia, there are over one thousand known covers of this song. So the search was one for the worst cover of the song. Now, there are some I approve of:

Annie Lennox
)
Dave Matthews
)
but for sheer cringe worthiness, nothing takes Willie Nelson’s cover.  )

Yeah, The Red Haired Stranger wins.
