Cover vs. Original

Woman


One of the most beautiful songs by John Lennon, who was murdered only shortly after it was published. He became the biggest rockstar (next to Elvis). But also Ozzy Osbourne did a good job with this cover and revived this song.

Comments about Woman:

It's bad enough that Lennon was murdered in 1980, without Ozzy coming along 25 years later and murdering one of his songs!

First of all.... without any questions the Lennon-version is better than Ozzy's... but as the last guy said... Ozzy didn't even try to be better than Lennon... he just made a tribute to an awesome song.
You should go compare it with other Lennon/Beatles-covers like Cocker's "With a little help..." and then I must say... Ozzy's "Woman" isn't the best cover... but still it is very good respective work and unique!

Don't just compare the both , Ozzy Osbourne didn't do a cover to say he is better he made it as a tribute.
