Moved here in the hopes of finding either support or debunking of it; from the entry for "Angel Of The Morning" (Incidentally, Juice Newton's version was not the original by a long shot.):

"Juice Newton's "Angel Of the Morning" is about a girl trying to seduce a guy even though he thinks she's too young and innocent for him."

I can't find anything to support this idea in the performances or even in the imagery of the music video.

"The two versions of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" showcase similar but very different messages."

??

Not sure how to put it better though.

Not certain if this is an example: Neil Young covered John Lennon's "Imagine" for America: A Tribute To Heroes (a telethon 10 days after the September 11th attacks). He changed one word ("Imagine no possessions / I wonder if [you -> I] can"), but it completely changes the tone of the song (Preachy to a mixture of Hypocrisy Nod and wistfulness).

Is that an example of this?
