Cover Songs

Post by Terria on Sun Dec 18, 2011 9:57 pm

Fuck Leona Lewis and call it bestiality.



What the fuck is this? Hurt is a brilliant song, why the hell has she shat all over it. When Nine Inch Nails did it it worked well in context with the rest of the album. Sure, it was a bit wangsty but it's Reznor, what do you expect? When Johnny Cash covered it it worked fantastically because he gave it new meaning and depth. That's why it's considered one of the best covers of all time (if not the best). When Leona Lewis covers it... why the fuck is Leona Lewis covering it? How the fuck can she give anything new to this song?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/16178204

Yes Leona, any song can and should be covered, but not by just anybody. Cover a song that means something to you (Wild Horses maybe). And while we're on the topic of Leona...

"Lewis has spoken in the past about her passion for playing video games. In between recording new material she said this year she's become obsessed with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - a fantasy role-playing game. "I think it's really good. It's a bit violent but I really like it," she explained. "I'm not very far into it. The thing I like about it is that you can ride horses on it."

No, video games are meant to let you escape reality. Why are you just playing as yourself? (You may thing the horse jokes are unfair, but she did release an album called Spirit so fuck it.) At least I won't have to listen to any other shitty covers this Christmas.



:anders:

Oh you have got to be fucking kidding me. I actually like Last Christmas. I enjoy the one time of year I get to listen to it. So why on earth have I been stuck listening to crappy covers two years in a row? I hate this whole fucking trend of shitty Jersey-Shore-ripoff shows that we've embraced. The Only Way Is Essex, Made In Chelsea, Geordie Shore, Desperate Scousewives. I can't believe they're all real shows. Why on earth have they got to branch out into music as well now? I don't care that it's for charity, as if that's supposed to make it uncritisizable. Wherever the money that the fucking morons who bought it is going to, it's still shit.

Pussycat Dolls - Jai Ho

FUCK YOU AND FUCK YOUR COVER

YOU CAN'T EVEN SPEAK HINDI

YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT JAI HO MEANS. YOU DEGRADE IT TO SOME KIND OF STUPID SEXUAL EUPHORIA

YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF THE DEPTH OF SOUL AND JOY 'JAI HO' CONVEYS AND THE BASTARDRY OF YOUR TAINT

What's more - you took away all that was wonderful in the meaning of Jai Ho's lyrics. For that you will forever be my least favourite of those crappy girl bands I never liked anyway

The Saturdays are henceforth genii compared with the likes of you

@GrinningManiac: Good show.

OP: As the 20's was the Jazz age, the 30's the depression, the 40's war, the 50's paranoia and the 60's liberation, so the 00's is the age of self-consciousness.

History favours the memorable.
The present may look like artistic death but that's only because you're getting the full picture.

Also I gotta say, the only reason there is for making a cover is making it sound good. Depth & meaning don't come into it, if it's good on the ears then it's justified.

My favorites.
Also, all the Dillinger Escape Plan covers have been AMAZING. Bar their cover of Paranoid, which is a bit shit.

Second one is pretty funny, though I'm not sure if its intentional or not.
