Cover vs. Original

Black Hole Sun


For being a cover, these are just about completely different songs. I love the original, and I love the cover. Seeing as they are different songs, I'll go with the original.

The two are entirely different songs. The original is just that. Die Originale. Soundgarden is classic in their sound, but the cover is an exciting foray of a song. Both songs are equally mesmerizing, and makes it difficult to choose between the two.

Cibo Matto's version is practically another song entirely. They're both great songs, but maybe because I haven't heard it a million times yet, I'd go with Cibo Matto. But, I'm biased, Cibo Matto is awesome.
