The 4 Greatest David Bowie Covers

David Bowie’s vast and varied catalog has inspired several covers by other musicians. And that’s why listening to David Bowie is like nothing else. It’s only inevitable that his legendary repertoire would motivate some covers. Check out these 10 greatest David Bowie song covers.

“Sound And Vision” – Beck (2013)
The symphonic version of “Sound and Vision” that Beck performed is eerie, providing a striking contrast to the upbeat and joyful version that David Bowie sang. It is a gem of a cover that is full of dramatics and is flooded with singers from the accompanying hallelujah chorus. It is possible that the legend would have been pleased with this version.

“Space Oddity” – The Flaming Lips (2017)
The Flaming Lips add noises suggestive of rocket launches, stratospheric excursions, and zero-gravity strolls, making David Bowie’s famous “Space Oddity” sound even more out of this world.

“Suffragette City” – Red Hot Chili Peppers (2012)
The Red Hot Chili Peppers toughen up “Suffragette City” by David Bowie. For all those alternative rock Bowie fans, the band puts their spin on the song with a hard-driving, headbanging interpretation.

“Modern Love” – Mipso (2022)
When compared to other re-imaginings of Bowie songs, Mipso’s rendition of “Modern Love” still manages to stand out. This performance is quite impressive because of the ethereal voices and harmonies, as well as the sparse instrumentation and arrangement.
