It’s no secret some covers are more popular than original tracks. Many Nirvana fans, for instance, are still sure that “The Man Who Sold The World” was written by Kurt Cobain, the group’s frontman. However, he was just someone who made – of course, fantastically – a cover for Davie Bowie’s track from the album with the same name. An anti-war hit “In The Army Now” became globally popular after it was performed by the British rock group “Status Quo” in 1986. However, it had been written several years before that by a little-known duet Boland&Boland.
YouTube era ushered the way for hundreds and thousands of talented musicians. Many presented their exquisite vision of their favorite songs. Some of them, such as the project RADIO TAPOK, translate the world hits into Russian.
