You guessed it, it's time for a showdown. We love to hear musical artists give their take on an original, and sometimes it turns out even better!
 
Some singer/songwriters have a knack for making songs their own so much that we don't even realize they covered them. Check out our Fall playlist on Soundcloud for Lorde's cover of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World"; it's creepy-good (here's the original version of the 80's classic).

Here is Willow's version of the super-cool tune:

 
 
Now, here's the original version of the song by King Krule (and we love.):

 
What do you think? If you know of any other good originals vs covers, let us know in the comments.
