Now listening to "Blasphemous Rumours" by German act Angelzoom. A cover of Depeche Mode obviously, but dare I say the cover IMO is better than the original. While realising a lot of Depeche Mode fans would consider this statement blasphemous, the cover just has a lot nicer dreamier harmony and a more emotional vocal. The original has a quite dramatic lyric sung without any emotion, as if the lyric is fun to listen and dance to. The cover injects emotion into the song that the original lacks.

Maybe this could be an idea for another topic: name a cover song that improves the original
