* Music/BobDylan loved Music/JimiHendrix's cover of "All Along the Watchtower" on ''Music/ElectricLadyland'', and began to incorporate some of the cover's elements into his own performance. Dylan wrote in the liner notes of his ''Biograph'' box set ""I liked Jimi Hendrix's record of this and ever since he died I've been doing it that way. Strange how when I sing it, I always feel it's a tribute to him in some kind of way."
* Small example, but after Music/JoeCocker 's version of "With a Little Help from My Friends" changed the line "what would you think if I sang out of tune" to "what would you do if I sang out of tune", even Music/RingoStarr started using the modified lyrics.

** Dylan also loved Music/TheByrds' cover of "Mr. Tambourine Man" and from that single onwards, the band was given first dibs at any Dylan song they wanted to cover. Dylan was reportedly disappointed that the band's 1965 cover of "All I Really Want to Do" was outpeaked on the pop charts by what he considered to be an inferior cover by Music/{{Cher}} that had been released in the same month.

* When Music/FrankSinatra covered the Beatles song "Something", he made a minor lyrical change, changing the line "you stick around now, it may show" to "You stick around, Jack, she might show". Music/GeorgeHarrison would use the new lyric in life performances since then, up until his death. Harrison has also been quoted as saying "My personal favourite is the version by Music/JamesBrown. It was one of his B-sides. I have it on my jukebox at home. It's absolutely brilliant."

* Creator/GeorgeRRMartin hasn't stated that he prefers ''Series/GameOfThrones'' to his series of books it is based on, but he has gone on record that there are slight differences he wished he had thought of, for example, he stated he considers the show version of Shae a much better character than his book version. In addition, he's apparently said that he might move some of the TV-only characters [[CanonImmigrant over to later books]], citing Creator/NatalieTena's performance of Osha as being more interesting than how he had written it.

* Despite it being rather divisive among fans, the creators of the ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'' {{OVA}} said they prefer the English dub over the original Japanese.



* Satoshi Tajiri, the creator of Pokémon, once stated that the ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'' manga most resembles the world that he was trying to convey. It's a long outdated quote though, and very likely does not hold true post Generation II (because Tajiri isn't even in charge of the franchise past then, Junichi Masuda is).

* The staff at Creator/FourKidsEntertainment apparently loves ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', although Konami and Upper Deck do ''not''.
** This may be because that much of the humor is derived from changes made to the show when it was dubbed into English - changes that obviously wouldn't be present in the Japanese version.
** Many members of the cast and crew at Creator/FUNimation, such as Creator/ChristopherSabat, enjoy Creator/TeamFourStar's ''Dragon Ball Z: The Abridged Series''. A couple cast members have even gotten work there. Scott Frerichs (AKA Kaiser Neko) was even an extra in the official dub for ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF''.

* Music/BillyBragg liked Kirsty [=MacColl's=] cover of "A New England". He wrote an two entirely new verse of the song especially for her to record. After her death in 2000, he's always included those verses in his own performances of the song as a tribute.
