What is a cover song?

Wikipedia defines a cover song as "In popular music, a cover version or cover song, or simply cover, is a new performance or recording of a contemporary or previously recorded, commercially released song, usually by someone other than the original artist."

The Free Dictionary defines a cover song as "a recording of a song that was first recorded or made popular by somebody else; they made a cover of a Beatles' song."


We weren't able to find why singing someone else's song is called "cover" but if it is called like that, let it be.

So do you sing cover songs according to the above definition? And if you do, do you have videos of your singing on YouTube or Vimeo? If you do, please be our guest and add them to the Cover Contest. We hope you will win. Honestly. Do it!

Happy singing!
