Torn (#OriginalMyAss Ep1)

I’m appalled and my whole childhood was a lie.

I’ve recently started digging up information on which famous songs were actually covered by the artist who made them famous.  This random research project was sparked by the brilliant cover of Sounds of Silence from Disturbed.  (The song was featured on this site before.)  And we can all agree that their version is better than the original.

What I didn’t expect was to find so many famous songs that was actually covers, previously recorded by other singers, before it turned into hits.

This will be a series of posts which I will call #OriginalMyAss and please be warned that it might destroy your childhood and love for certain songs.

Here is TORN from NATALIE IMBRUGLIA…

It was originally recorded by some unpronounceable Danish girl in 1993, then again by Ednaswap in 1995, before it turned into a debut hit single for Natalie in 1997.

Now you know.  And I’m sorry.

    Brilliant idea! You could also include songs that the artist didn’t write, only performed. Like Steven Tyler’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”

      That would include the whole discography of Britney Spears then…
