The 10 Song Remakes We Want to See Happen
Remaking a song is no easy task. Usually, there is nothing like the original. However, when a remake is done right, the artist might make music history, accidentally overshadowing a song’s original composer. Some of the most popular song remakes to do just that are Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You‘ (originally by Dolly Parton), Aretha Franklin‘s ‘Respect‘ (originally by Otis Redding), and Maxwell‘s ‘This Woman’s Work‘ (originally by Kate Bush). The BoomBox dusted off some of our favorite lost hits from the ’80s — the decade when hip-hop first began making a name for itself — and after some careful deliberation came up with a list of unlikely song remakes that would be sure to wow.
