Тwin Hits — 100 лучших каверов всех времен

Тwin Hits — 100 лучших каверов всех времен

Давным-давно было радио «Модерн». Пару раз в неделю интеллигентный ведущий Алексей Разумовский вел десятиминутную передачу Тwin Hits, рассказывая о разных причудливых кавер-версиях известных треков. И подсадил он меня на это дело. С тех пор я коллекционирую каверы.

Редакторы New York Post в 2008 году составили список «100 лучших каверов всех времен». Давайте взглянем на результаты. Благодаря Youtube почти ко всему удалось найти звук — кликайте по обложкам, чтобы послушать.

Итоги

  • Больше всего каверов, конечно, на Beatles.
  • Даже судя по статистике просмотров оригинала и кавера на Youtube можно понять, что у кавера может быть гораздо больший успех, чем у оригинала.
  • С песней-кавером можно заработать популярность. Вы знали H.I.M. до Wicked Game?
  • Кавер нужно не испортить. Кавер — не только интерпретация, но и дань уважения. Не можешь пережить песню — не суйся, мистер Paul Anka.
  • Нет профессиональных переделывальщиков вроде Richard Cheese, Young@Heart и пр., каверы которых весьма достойны.
  • Фавориты в моем зачете из этого списка: the Clash — I Fought the Law, Sid Vicious — My Way, Sonic Youth — Superstar и Siouxsie and the Banshees — Dear Prudence.
