Faith Hill, Jessica Simpson Bashed for Covers
Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch readers have compiled a list of the 20 Worst Cover Songs Ever, and not surprisingly, country artists were included. Coming in at both the No. 1 and No. 2 slot is country's newest star, Jessica Simpson. First, for her cover of the Berlin classic, 'Take My Breath Away,' and then for her remake of the Robbie Williams hit, 'Angels,' both of which were included on the Collector's Edition of her 2003 album, 'In This Skin.'
"Reminds of that scene in 'Jaws' when the drunk sea captain gets the town's attention by scratching his nails down the blackboard -- which sounds 1000 percent more pleasant than this cover," writes one reader of Simpson's 'Take My Breath Away.'
Faith Hill's remake of the song Janis Joplin made famous, 'Piece of My Heart,' made the list at No. 18. Sheryl Crow's cover of Guns N' Roses' 'Sweet Child O' Mine' was bashed in the No. 4 slot. Whitney Houston was also included on the list, for her rendition of the Dolly Parton classic, 'I Will Always Love You.'
