I actually thought the cover was better than the original. But I like the remix of Orgy's Blue Monday more.Originally Posted by Canuck21
I am human and I need to be loved just like everybody else does.
Like I said, it's not bad; meaning it's good. It's just that the sound is not too original and I don't like the band, it's trying too hard to look cool, that's why I say they are poseurs. As a fan of New Order, of course I prefer the original and original it was. Blue Monday was released in 1983 and at the time its sound was revolutionary.Originally Posted by Digitalis
Found a few other covers of "Love Will Tear Us Apart"...Originally Posted by Canuck21
Nouvelle Vague - Yet another cover by them. They must be fans of Joy Division and New Order. It gets quite boring after a few seconds
Fall Out Boy - Sounds kind of emo, not my cup of tea
José González - The slowing down of Joy Division and New Order songs bores me to death
Toy Division - The best cover ever! LOL
Arthur Baker - Not a cover but a remix and I kind of like it
The Bobby Fuller Four's version wasn't even the original. The song was originally recorded by Sonny Curtis of The Crickets.Originally Posted by Ken Cheng
The Crickets - This video is not the original recording but it's performed by the original band
Bobby Fuller Four - This version was more successful and it is this version that The Clash was inspired to do a cover
The Clash - This cover is very good and this live performance is simply amazing, the best IMO
Green Day - This one is quite similar to The Clash's and it's like a cover of the cover
I finally found a video of The Cure's cover of "Love Will Tear Us Apart" with Robert Smith's vocal. This is one of my favourite covers. It is as good as the original.Originally Posted by Canuck21
I wish that people would participate in this thread more often. I'd like to find out more covers because sometime, you don't know that it's cover like Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You". If Huang Rong didn't mentioned it, I would have always thought that that was an original. I'm glad that I learn about Dolly Parton's song because I actually prefer hers.
Original: Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship
George Lam made it his own with a cover version.
Sandy Lam is the queen of cover songs.
Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself
Original: Morrissey - Who can beat the legendary Moz?
Cover: The Killers - These guys come close to the Mancunian legend
Original: Joy Division - This is post-punk at its finest; raw, emotional, gloomy, creative, influential, Mancunian
Cover: The Killers - Most of you probably prefer this up-to-date and pop sound
As a side note, Tony Wilson died last night (August 10th, 2007) at the age of 57 of a heart attack. Those who love indie music will ever be grateful. RIP Anthony Howard Wilson.
I just love how you Captivate My Mind
