Celine Dion’s Oscar-winning ballad from Titanic has been reinterpreted by headbangers near and far – pretty much wherever there are long-haired dudes with guitars. A quick Google search on “Heavy Metal Covers My Heart Will Go On” yields many results. The latest to give the track the metal treatment is DragonForce, who included it as the closing track on the new album Extreme Power Metal.
Welcome to Cover Me Q&A, where we take your questions about cover songs and answer them to the best of our ability.
Here at Cover Me Q&A, we’ll be taking questions about cover songs and giving as many different answers as we can. This will give us a chance to hold forth on covers we might not otherwise get to talk about, to give Cover Me readers a chance to learn more about individual staffers’ tastes and writing styles, and to provide an opportunity for some back-and-forth, as we’ll be taking requests (learn how to do so at feature’s end).
Today’s question, from Cover Me staffer Raphael Camara: What’s a song that’s been covered too many times?
This Week on Bandcamp rounds up our favorite covers to hit the site in the past seven days.
Some weeks we have to dig deep to find five great new covers on Bandcamp. Other weeks…man oh man. Without even trying this week we found ourselves with 20+ songs, any one of which might have made the set on another occasion. We narrowed it down to 10 – five main tunes, and five bonus tracks. Think of it as an extra-sturdy dose of covers to get you through the hurricane.
