Just a question...
Which songs that have been remade are your favourites - and which version - the older or the newer one would you prefer?

IMHO , the new artists usually ruin the beauty the songs had when it was performed by their original artists - e.g. "Under the bridge" - All Saints

Personally - I like most version of "I will survive" - but the new version done by CAKE in the rock style is pretty cool.

Also, Chantel Kraviazuk's "Leaving on a jetplane" , Madonna's "American Pie" and The Corrs's version of REM's "Everybody Hurts" are among my favs.

I like Orgy's version of "How does it feel?", although they market it as Blue Monday.

I LOVE the remake of the Bee Gee's "Tragedy" which was done by the British pop group Steps for the Bee Gee's tribute album. The song went on to become Steps' trademark song and is the biggest selling Bee Gee's single EVER. The Bee Gee's themselves said they loved the remake.

Other remakes that I like better than the original are a1's "Take On Me" (first done by A-Ha from Norway, one of a1's band members is from there) and Aurora's "Ordinary World" (originally done by Duran Duran).


Head in the clouds... yet feet planted firmly on the ground.

I love the Oasis version of Helter Skelter. Of course the original beatles version is better, but the Oasis version is still tops.

Also, a bootlegged version of Nirvana's Penny royal Tea, that was done by the Manic Street Preachers. It's a great cover.

Primus did an EP of nothing but covers called "Miscellaneous Debris" a few years back. Their versions of Pink Floyd's "Have A Cigar" and Peter Gabriel's "Intruder" were great! They also recently did a cover of Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be" on the "Rhinoplasty" EP that was pretty good. I also enjoyed Infectious Groove's version of "The Immigrant Song" by Led Zepplin. Nothing beats original Zep, but they came close.

All these 'remakes' just prove one thing that I've been saying all along:
Todays "musicians" are devoid of any talent, originality, or creativity whatsoever. No single act born of the 1990's (with the possible exceptions of Nirvana and Pearl jam) will ever, EVER become more than footnotes in the history of music come 10 or 20 years from now. Never again will we have another Beatles, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin or Fleetwood Mac. It's really sad. They have to rely on robbing and raping timeless classics to make a buck and be heard on the air. To make matters worse, the remakes SUCK. I'd rather listen to static than any of their regular trash. And the worst part of it is that there is a generation of kids who THINK that Madonna wrote American Pie!!!!The fact that Don McLean endorsed Madonkeys remake of American Pie means that she must've lost a police baton up his ass.
Not only did she rip him off, she couldn't even do the full 8 1/2 minutes of the original song.

Agreed entirely, Matt D. And, I'll admit, I'm part of the generation you speak of.

I'll say that I like Guns 'N Roses version of "Live and Let Die", and Cake's "I Will Survive" (to a lesser degree), but the only honestly memorable song I've come across in the '90s is Kid Rock's "Cowboy", and a few of Vanessa Amorosi's songs.

Hopefully the '90s groups will quickly fall through the cracks and give us a new group of artists who can make songs that top the 1960s/70s hits.
