In today’s “The cover is better that the original”, we chose Eagle Eye Cherry’s To Love Somebody. The original song is by the Bee Gees
Why it’s better: The Bee Gees wrote great songs but there are covers of their songs that are way better than their originals. Eagle Eye Cherry’s cover of To Love Somebody is a great example. It’s different from the original song because it has an upbeat tempo, more 90s. Eagle Eye Cherry’s version is kind of bittersweet. I listened to it for the first time in a Mexican movie called “Y Tu Mamá También”, it certainly added another level to the song and now it connects with my youth self in more ways than one.
