The general consensus is that cover versions never convey the truest intentions of the original. In many cases, it’s a telling observation. As always exceptions to this view are many – a great cover version can lift a song to new heights, find a different form of expression to the original or simply become the version of any given song that people relate to the most.
Our covers playlist is selected by various One Quarters, with contributors coming from Asta Honkamaa, Nick Triani, Eduardo Alonso, Lotta Savolainen, Karstein Volle, Arttu Tolonen and Joel Kupiainen. Old skool OQM playlist picture from Kaarlo Stauffer. Enjoy.
