A good cover is distinct and fresh without losing the essence of the original. Once the melody hits, the listener should have an “Oh! I know and love this song!” moment. It’s also nice when a cover clears up a few lyrics that have previously gone misheard.

I hope The Klaxons (pictured above) receive some much deserved street-cred for playing Blackstreet.
