Either you hate or love cover versions. According to my life experience I have only come across these two opinions about cover versions. Our point of view on the topic is no longer a spoiler after this page title. Yes, we love cover versions, especially Synth Pop cover versions. And for the full "Inception" experience: We adore Synth Pop cover versions of Synth Pop songs!
What makes a good Synth Pop cover? Also here the opinions are controversial. Personally I think, to play a good song as close to the original as possible is pointless. Why should I listen to a 1:1 copy when I can also listen to the original? A good cover should be independent. No, it must even shine through its independence. The band or the artist must be able to breathe new life into the song. Be it through a new instrumentation, a different style, a different tempo and of course the own musical DNA.
A cover version is to be understood as a kind of love letter to the original author and should be gratefully received as such. With this page we would like to honour all the bands and artists, who in turn honour their favourite band and artists with their cover versions and thus pay tribute. Maybe that's why they started with music themselves. Therefore we have put together a small overview with music videos, our tribute compilations and a big Spotify Playlist on this topic.
