    As a counter to Dueducs great covers thread how about a worst covers thread. Without a shadow of a doubt mine would be Whitney bellowing I Will Always Love You. Total ruination of a beautiful, gentle number.

    I really liked Whitney's version of that song But that's just me. One that I really didn't care for at all was Korn's version of Another Brick in the Wall.

    They definitely count!!! I normally don’t care much one way or the other about commercials using famous song bits. But there is something about that ad that just gets under my skin and irritates.

    Most of the really bad covers i have heard come either from small town piano bars or karaoke night at the local watering hole. Just saying.

    I agree with the OP. IMO Dolly's version is far superior to the Whitney Houston one.

    You may have me beat there, I have been to wedding receptions in the 1970's with live bands. Truly cringeworthy covers of CCR and the Beatles
