^^^ I remember It's My Party, which IMHO was one of those rare songs where I preferred the cover to the original!

Not there is anything wrong with Lesley Gore's original, it's superb, I just prefer the cover.

^^ I know what you mean @finlux

For me, I usually prefer the version I've heard first, even if it's not the original, but that rule is not hard and fast. I actually like listening to different versions of the same song back to back to hear how the interpretations differ. You might recall that I posted three different versions of "Voyage Voyage" last August

Agreed. Often a cover is nowhere near as good as the original, other times it is much better. Like Sirenia's version of Voyage Voyage. A fantastic cover that blows the originals out of the water.

Going back to Voyage Voyage, I've been listening to other covers :)

Here's the Sirenia one that @finlux mentioned above



And here's one that's either done in a Gregorian fashion, or by a group called "Gregorian". Must admit my hopes for this were not fulfilled!



I quite like this one



and this one

^^^ I see what you mean about the 'Gregorian' one!

I liked the Ки? Туа! version of Voyage, Voyage, but my favourite is still Sirenia's version.
