15: A song that is a cover by another artist

Wanted Dead or Alive - Tom Cruise and Julianne Hough (Rock of Ages - 2012 movie)

Another place, where the faces are so cold,

I’d drive all night just to get back home.

I love Rock of Ages, and when I saw this one I knew I was going to pick a song from it, mostly because I really don’t like covers of songs very much. I think the music sounds better in stage productions of this show, but I actually like the movie’s story better (they’re only a little different). I almost used “I Want to Know What Love Is” or the opening song, but I ended up using this because I remember how much Tom Cruise’s voice SURPRISED ME!!!! And this is a REALLY good cover especially for a movie (it doesn’t sound Glee-ish at all, like some of the songs in the movie!), and it’s one of my favorite songs in the movie/musical anyway.
