The 10 Best Covers of Irving Berlin Songs

Everybody from Taylor Swift to Twisted Sister (look it up) has covered Irving Berlin. All the jazz greats, all the sappy lounge singers, all the fresh-faced pop starlets — they’ve all chosen tunes from Berlin’s great American songbook and tried to make them their own. In fact, just yesterday, Willie Nelson and Sister Bobbie released December Day: Willie’s Stash Vol. 1, which includes several Berlin covers (“What’ll I Do,” “Always”).

In honor of the Geffen Playhouse’s current production of Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin, we decided to round up 10 of the best and most memorable covers of Irving Berlin classics.
