 Covers vs Originals

What do you think of covers of songs?
I know some that tend to very much dislike the idea of covering a song, but most seem fine with it. Those who dislike it claim that the cover hasn't as much feeling as the original song, or it simply isn't as good. I personally like both covers and originals. I like how the cover artist puts their own spin on the original.
If you like covers, what artists do you like? Some notable cover artists (for me) are Boyce Avenue, Christina Grimmie, and Kina Grannis.

Decir 'perfecto' es mentir y decir 'maƱana' es predecir...

It depends, I have many times liked a cover without knowing it is one, and when I heard the original, it takes a while before I like it too.

I am not against them, I think it is good, so long it is a cover and not plagiarism or taking a part of it into a completely different song.

I don't have favourites but well...
"I think we're alone now" I hear it nowadays with a girl, I knew it by "Inspection 12", I have the feeling it is a cover. Speaking of Inspection 12 "You can call me All" is another cover I like from them.

Hmm. I admit, I like some Erasure's covers. Not all, but many of them.
Specially their Abba covers, I also like covers of Erasure songs, like "siren's song" .

But I am so happy of the old songs I've learn like Abba, Bob Dylan, etc that I know the lyrics and rhythm because of the covers I'd listen too, being able to sing with your parents or friends, feels so good. specially with parents/family because it closes magically the generation gap for the minutes the song last.

Another kind of covers I like is orchestral lyric-less versions of songs. X3
Like Guns and Roses, Iron Maiden, and others.

I'll get videos later, you too feel free to share yours.

Some of them are very well done, like the Alegria one and the Titanic one. I like covers actually myself.
