* Music/ReelBigFish has performed a myriad of covers, although most famous would be their cover of "Take On Me", originally by Music/A-ha, as it was part of the BASEketball soundtrack.

If a song is recorded by a singer-songwriter, and then by somebody else, the second person's recording is a Cover Version. If the song is from TinPanAlley and not released by the original songwriter, the Cover Version is either any version after the first recording, or any version after the first hit recording. The term got its name in TheFifties, when labels used to record & release "black" (rhythm & blues) and "white" (country or rock n' roll) versions of the same song, thereby "covering" the market.

* The BlueOysterCult's song ''Going Thru The Motions'' is perhaps better known in Great Britain in the hit version by rock chick Bonnie Tyler. Co-author Ian Hunter, of MottTheHoople fame, also recorded his version (albeit after the BOC put it on their ''Spectres'' album, which qualifies his version as a cover) which also charted.

* TheIsleyBrothers cover of ''summer breeze'' probably counts. Ernie Isley adding a EpicRiff and ending on a bad ass 3 minute guitar solo. It went from a folk type tune by Seals and Crofts and turned into psychedelic funk/rock/soul track. * DavidBowie is frequently covered, specially "Heroes" and "Rebel Rebel". * MyChemicalRomance did a cover of BobDylan's "Desolation Row" for the "Watchmen" soundtrack, but cranked it UpToEleven.

* Music/MarianasTrench did a really beautiful cover of the Billy Joel song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3EsAVX3gAo "And So It Goes"]], at the end of the director's cut of their album ''Masterpiece Theatre''. Lead singer Josh Ramsay also did a really...strange cover of Music/NickiMinaj's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imNiSM1rnUI "Anaconda"]].

** To add to the gag, the CD release of the song had two B-sides of Pulp songs covered by other artists, which parodied common types of bad cover. Music/NickCave's "Disco 2000" parodied the "cover a silly uptempo pop song as [[SofterAndSlowerCover slowly and depressingly as possible]] for instant irony/gravitas" phenomenon, while Music/{{Moloko}}'s "Sorted" (as in "... for E's and Whizz") parodied dance "remixes" that are simply generic EDM tracks with a perfunctory sample of the original thrown in occasionally.

Hit songs tend to attract Cover Versions. Sometimes, Cover Versions are more popular than the first version; the original is then CoveredUp. If a cover is done in another language then it is a TranslatedCoverVersion. See also TheCoverChangesTheGender and TheCoverChangesTheMeaning.
