Remakes. There’s lots of them. Sometimes I like the original and sometimes the remake. It’s funny how when you’re listening to a song and then realize that the song you knew was not the original. Many times I’ve been surprised to learn that a song is a remake.
So here’s a few remakes that I like.
The Race is On by George Jones and Sawyer Brown – Sawyer Brown all the way. Yes, it was the first version I heard, but I love SB and this one is awesome.
Sweet Caroline by Elvis and Neil Diamond – Elvis may be The King, I choose Neil with this one.
Layla by Eric Clapton – This one is actually a tough one for me to choose. I’m not sure which I like best because they’re both good.
What of the above do you prefer? What are some songs where you prefer the 2nd version over the original.
