Ugh - remakes!

So when I was putting my daughter to bed a bit ago, I had the Love Song station on DirectTV playing in her room as background noise, and heard the crappiest remake EVER. How do you feel about song remakes?


Sometimes, I love them, like with Seether's remake of George Michael's "Careless Whisper". And Reba's take on "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" kicks the originals ass.

But then you've got Whats-His-Name Vandross remake of The Carpenter's "Superstar", and it blows chunks!

If you're going to remake a song, you'd better make dang sure you do it WELL.

  • I HATE them....the worst one for me is I Melt With You by Modern English....I love that song and they sing it so well. here's the thing. i hear all these covers of the song on chocolate or car commercials and they're sung by women who sing it like it's a love song and it's NOT. I Melt With You is a brilliant song about sex, it's not a love song, Modern English made it sound dirty, the way it's supposed to sound. every time i hear it and it's not by Modern English i cringe.

  • I like Marilyn Manson's cover of Tainted Love, I also like Seether's cover of Careless Whisper. Stevie Ray Vaughan's take on Little Wing was AMAZING!!!! They can be cool when done right. But there are some lame attempts....Jessica Simpson doing These Boots, for instance. Made a bad song so much worse!

  • I thought 311 did justice to Lovesong by the Cure (and that's saying a lot because I love the Cure!!!!)

  • I'm not a fan of 311's cover of Love Song. i like Anberlin"s cover of Love Song...it was more hard rock
