There is an old vein of Pop proficiency in the neighbourhood. ABBA and those Norwegians left a legacy.

ABBA were genius. They could just bring the classical into the disco pop and make it hang together. Just check how simply and perfectly they mix euphoric arrangements in dancing queen.

I think, either I am a future teller, or he is a DIYer and reads here. Or you know him and told him!

Not only Metallica but he did the very song even. Weird. The choreography group addition is lame though.

I hate comparing remakes to originals. Some times the context of the original is lost. Sometimes the original is horrible and forgotten and the new version stands on its own
I am not a huge fan of Madonna, but no one can take away what she did to pop music at the time.
I do seem to enjoy Jay's style of singing and the song came out well...
I tend to like remixes of original songs often keeping original vocals. Even better if the original artist is part of the mixing process.

Here is a cool remix that kind of brings the heavy euro rock guitar that was used in Jay's version, with the softness of B'jork's vocal style.
The Madonna remake made this pop up in my head
Remix of "Isobel".
YouTube - Bjork - Isobel (Metal Version with Carcass)

Off topic a little more, there is a ridiculous remake of The Sugar Hill Gang's "rapper's delight" that is a country version. Done by none other than Mike D of the Beastie Boys singing as fake "Country Mike". I think all the Beastie Boys were involved with the album "Country Mike's greatest hits".
I got the album at a used record store and cannot find it anywhere. It's a fluke, I guess. The country version is so awesome, my Mom even likes it! YEEEEE HAW!!!
