Even Better Than the Real Thing is the title of a number of Irish charity albums recorded on The Ray D'Arcy Show on Today FM and released over a number of years for the Irish Christmas market. The albums featured Irish artists performing covers of various pop songs until 2005 when the series was temporarily discontinued, although in 2008 Even Better Than the Disco Thing was released featuring covers of disco songs instead. The title is taken from the U2 song "Even Better Than the Real Thing".

On the long road to Dreams Worth More Than Money, his second album, the most thorough reminder of his skill was Dreams and Nightmares, the two-part intro and title track off his 2012 debut. That song alone would’ve been reason to follow Meek for years to come - that is, if similar jolts weren’t everywhere else in his catalog. That energy is a big reason why eyes stayed on Meek’s career even when it wasn’t possible to see him. Conversation about Dreams Worth More Than Money started getting loud last summer, and its delayed released can be blamed on the fact that Meek then went to prison for a few months. But the way fans celebrated his eventual freedom, combined with the public learning about his (still ongoing) romance with Nicki Minaj, catapulted Meek to superstardom for the time being.

Perhaps Metallica’s version isn’t better, but it’s epic in the listening pleasure it has to offer. Whiskey in the Jar isn’t by Thin Lizzy; an Irish folk song as old as the hills, its been recorded by artists from The Dubliners to Peter, Paul & Mary, and its origins predate recorded music itself. But it’s pretty clear that Metallica’s 1998 cover is an ode to Thin Lizzy’s hit 1972 single. Found on the band’s 1970 album Loaded, the Velvet Underground original is a stately ballad, influenced by Lou Reed’s adoration of ‘50s doo-wop and dreamy Phil Spector productions, complete with a spoken word lament/plea to a lover. Chan Marshall’s version, by contrast, is of a piece with most of the material she recorded for her 2000 Covers Record. Beyond the lyrics, all the musical signifiers have been removed in place of a quiet piano line, her aching vocals, and an emphasis on the line, You better run to me.

Is it that we live in a culture that embraces cover songs, nostalgia and movie franchise reboots more than anything entirely original? Or is it just that arguing about cover songs doubles the amount of fans (those of the original band and the cover band) who can be outraged? Whatever the reason, it hasn't stopped us from assembling our own list of songs that take well-known source material and spin it into something amazing in its own right.
