Covers better than the Original: ‘Love Hurts’

For a generation of pimply teens, Nazareth’s “Love Hurts” is the only version of this song that matters. Released in 1975, this was an early power ballad that had lighters raised and brooding boys lamenting.

But their version isn’t the original. The song was written by Boudleaux Bryant and first recorded by The Everly Brothers in 1960.

By the way, of you’d like another version of the song, this one by Roy Orbison, check out this free mp3 from Amazon.

Lots of good reactions to “Covers better than the Original.” Keep ’em coming!
