    • It's what we call on the show a "re-cover". This is when an artist takes one of their own songs, and reinvents it with a completely different sound. Bruce's new take on "Blinded" moves the song into a direction completely different from his original, or the Manfred Mann versions. Look at the unplugged version of Eric Clapton's "Layla" for another great example.

      That said, just because an artist wrote a song doesn't mean they can't cover it. The Family and Sinead O'Connor both released versions of the Prince-written "Nothing Compares 2 U" long before Prince recorded his own version. Which makes his a cover.
