pardon my ignorance and perhaps the life i have led under a rock.. but what exactly makes a 'cover' song a 'cover'? or more simply.. how do you know a song is a pink floyd 'cover' or just a pink floyd song?
If a band plays a song that another band has written and released, then it is a cover, the song may have been done in a different genre with differnet keys and scales, but it's still the same song.

Jeez... if your house was on fire, what would you do? Phone the fire department, or go on UG and ask us what to do?
if pink floyd wrote it and copyrighted it, but someone else performs it or records it...

welcome to life out from under that rock.....

A Pink Floyd song is by Pink Floyd, a Pink Floyd "cover" is someone doing a version of Pink Floyd's song.

lol love how every example is pink floyd

edit: just to be cool and go against the crowd. Bob Dylan released "Like a Rolling Stone." Jimi Hendrix was greatly influenced by Bob Dylan, and decided to release a cover of Bob's "Like A Rolling Stone". It's a cover, even though the two don't really sound anything alike.
