Chris Cornell is another vocalist who can make as much of an impact with other artist’s songs as he can his own. Cornell is probably my favorite singer of all time and he has one of the most versatile voices in music with a wide range. Here are some of his best covers.
Everybody’s Got Something to Hide (Except for Me and My Monkey) (The Beatles)
Girl U Want (Devo)
Nothing Compares 2 U (Prince/Sinead O’ Connor)
Thank You (Led Zeppelin)
One (Music by U2/Lyrics by Metallica)
Billie Jean (Michael Jackson)
Redemption Song (Bob Marley)
Imagine (John Lennon)
Seven Nation Army (The White Stripes)
There are a long list of other great covers available on YouTube.
