We all know that alot of songs are re-made and usually sound awefull!

Here is 1 that makes me wanna vomit!! (I closed the page within seconds)

www.youtube.com/v/ozk75DM7d2w ("Shes like the wind" (A wonderfull 80s song))


If that wasnt enough for ya heres another!

www.youtube.com/v/I7imqO-OBVk - "Careless Whisper" (Another good 80s song)

List out songs you feel are disgusting and degrade the original......

German bands in the 50s & 60s doing Elvis or the Beatles. Most painful! E

A "remake"? "original"?

Of 70's The B52's - Rock Lobster

Hope they got compensation.

I know I'm going to get flamed for this but here goes.
Maybe some people don't consider this a remake but, I think Erick Clapton's remake (unplugged version) of Layla is pathetic. Followed closely by The Eagles' remake of Hotel California. I have the highest respect for both of these artists by the way.

I was just in the company cafeteria gettin an afternoon coffee and someone was doing a remake of Traffic's Dear Mr. Fantasy. It was kind of a grungy, low fi approach to the song.....

I got the heck out of there...didn't wait to see who the artist was.

I kind of thought Jim Carey did a pretty good job as the walrus. But here's one canadian who can suck the life out of any classic.

Alan Parsons the "digital remastering" of Mystery and Imagination with the horrible guitar lead right in the middle of one of the songs where there was once a nice quiet groove.
