Love It or Leave It: TV on the Radio Covering Bowie's "Heroes"

Love It or Leave It: TV on the Radio Covering Bowie's "Heroes"

Normally, I'm nowhere near as fond of a cover as I am of the original song (few people are, I'd wager). Usually they just sound like cheap knockoffs. So I expected little of TV on the Radio's cover of David Bowie's "Heroes," and maybe that's partially why I liked it so much. It's different from Bowie's but familiar enough to not destroy the memory of the original. Also, I'm intrigued by the fact that Bowie himself chose both the band and the song of his that they should cover for the title track of this benefit album of covers.

Take a listen and tell me: Do you dig it? Or not so much?

I actually like this cover, which I didn't expect. It's much better than The Wallflowers' version on the Godzilla soundtrack back in the day. (Ooops I'm dating myself!)Ditto on Seu Jorge!!!

My favorite Bowie covers were done by Seu Jorge.

I love David Bowie and rarely like any of his work that is covered. I haven't heard this one yet. Maybe I'll like it.
