Completely Unnecessary Covers

Postby DennisMM on Thu Feb 09, 2006 12:36 pm

It's the anti- I Got a You Covered, eh? Songs that never should have been covered by the putzes who did! There's been a little of this in the other thread, but I want shock and awe here, people.

Last night I was waiting for a burger at Sonic and suddenly I hear Shaun Cassidy's "Da Doo Ron Ron" (that's how they spelled it on his album). That reminds me of his other bad cover, "Do You Believe in Magic?" Some quick checking shows he also covered The Who.

Now my brain is collapsing into visions of Parker Stevenson.

One of the jack%sses in the New Kids on the Block who covered a Prince song (Never Take the Place of Your Man)

Took a really god song and killed it... on the spot.

Non-Brits will have been mercifully spared this one, but a British pop singer called Louise covered Stuck in the Middle with You

She was in The All-Saints right? That reminds me of another pointless/bizarre cover that they did of Under The Bridge...I guess nobody told them this song was about Keadis smacking-up err Under The Bridge.

And speaking of The Chilis, their Stevie Wonder cover (Higher Ground) was a bit lifeless if you ask me.

Nah, she was in Eternal, so a bit earlier than that. But your point is well made - all of All Saints' covers were shite. As were their other songs. Didn't they do Lady Marmalade too?

One of my favorite songs is "Wild Night" by Van Morrison. Van's version just COOKS - a great, great rhythm track. Well, John Mellencamp and Me'Shell NdegeOcello (sp?) covered it, and drained all the drive, rhythm, and fun out of it. I was disappointed, to say the least.

Also, I love "You Were Always On My Mind" when Willie Nelson sings it, but I heard some weird disco cover of it (Pet Shop Boys, or something - I don't remember) that was electronic, sped up, and utterly ridiculous. I wanted to vomit.

You really hated it? I actually thought it was quite good- not only for featuring the legendary Joss Ackland in the video, but for the shlocky halloween feel. You gotta expect it to be electronic, we're talking about The Pet Shop Boys here not Woodie Guthrie. I thought it just made it a different song, what'd be worse is if someone did an exact replica of the song. Then there'd be NO reason to listen to it.

I suppose the cover has some artistic validity - I'm not going to debate that. But to me, it's a very emotional song (it means something to me personally, for reasons I won't go into here), and Pet Shop Boys sounded like robots singing it - totally draining the emotion and humanity from it. That was the important part to me. I felt like someone had borrowed my wallet, then took all the money out and handed it back, saying "Here's your wallet back - aren't you happy?"

Sure, I'd hate to see a song that had touched me that personally completely changed like that. And when you love a song that much, and it's been such a big part of your life, any change is a bad one.

Also, The Waterboys did a cover of Van Morrison's "Sweet Thing" that was utterly pointless. Mike Scott isn't much of a singer, and the cover added NOTHING to the original. It just seemed to be saying "Hey, I'm into Van Morrison! Aren't I cool?"

Ugh.

Six Feet Under did a whole album of covers (Deep Purple, the Monkees) and ruined every song with their one-note bullshit.

And the new Tony Hawk videogame has one of the most infuriating soundtracks I could ever have conceived of--it's composed largely of pop-punk and emo bands "covering" classic punk/hardcore bands like the Misfits, the Descendents, the Dead Boys, Suicidal Tendencies, Black Flag, and fuckin' FEAR. The concept brings me to the point of murder; the execution takes me far, far past it.
The whole world's wild at heart and weird on top.

This entire thread is like remembering the sound of draggi8ng fingernails across a chalk board. :-)

I agree with all of you. A good cover can be cool, but it is SOOOOO difficult to do a good cover IMO.

The Limp Bizkit cover of Behind Blue Eyes actually made me angry!

Isn't there a shitty rap remake of Stayin' Alive?

As much as I likef Pearl Jam, their cover of "Last Kiss" drove me insane for an entire summer. Then another summer was practically destroyed by The Counting Crows & Vanessa Carlton covering Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi." And I know there are Guns and Roses fans who will disagree, but I hate hate hate their cover of "Sympathy for the Devil."

As a hand-me-down from my sister, that was the first album I ever owned. I've been confused ever since. And to prove it....

Bob Poopflingius Maximus, that's the first time I've ever seen that video (David Hasselhoff covering "Hooked On A Feeling")... I've seen screencaps of it, but never the actual video. That will scar me forever. In fact, it brings to me a new greatest fear - that my girlfriend or family member will find me at my computer with that video on an endless loop, remains of (insert drug here) all around, one hand in my pants and the other still clutching the gun that delivered the final blow to my life.

Damn you Shaun Cassidy.
And damn you David Hasselhoff - your sex appeal, personal floatation device, ir talking car won't help you escape my wrath this time.

I was going to say Infectious Grooves' cover of Bowie's 'Fame', but on reflection something that funky can't really be that bad, Mike Muir's tired voice aside.

G3's version of Zappa's "My guitar wants to kill your mama" was really really weak, despite the gazillion solos.

Lennie Kravitz's cover of "American Woman" is putrid.

As is one of the New Kids Jackass's covered Prince's "I could never take the place of your man". He tried to make it a ballad. Pretty much vommit enducing.

I second the Tony Hawk soundtrack: the Hawk games in general have just become too commercial for their own good ("Trick across the Jeep (TM) in time to the music playing on your Sirius (TM) tuner! And be sure to collect all the Nokia (TM) cell phones while you do it!") But the soundtrack is a true fucking disgrace, obviously designed to push albums on stupid emo kids.

As for unnecessary covers:

--The entire existence of the A-Teens. I hate Abba already, a band that exists entirely to cover them makes me wonder why, exactly, we need Sweden.

--"Satisfaction", a song that has a few good covers and LEGIONS of terrible ones, especially after it was declared "The Greatest Rock Song, like, EVER!!!" by Rolling Stone. Britney Spears' remains the most hilarious, because they changed the lines about cigarettes but not the line "no girly action." Hmmmmm...

--"I Love Rock and Roll"; the song has been killed. And then raped. And then carved up by a psychotic. For the purposes of creating more orifices with which to rape it.
This comment is in no way meant to insist your opinion is wrong or be considered an edict, solely this poster's opinion. That said, you are still a fool and will kneel before me in supplication.

I mentioned this in another thread, but No Doubt's cover of 'It's My Life' is insulting to Talk Talk. As well as anyone with auditory senses.




And I'd like to be the fifth or sixth person to hate on Lenny Kravitz's 'American Woman'. It's not like his originals aren't normally about a hair away from being covers anyways, awash in derivitiveness as they are, but at least there he's making a half-ass attempt. And 'Mr. Cab Driver' is still cool.

Also, not remembering who mentioned it, but I hated that Pearl Jam 'Last Kiss' so much I stopped listening to them entirely until late last year when I dusted off 'Vs.' and allowed them back into the fold.

And I agree with King's assessment of every G'NR cover....be it 'Knockin on Heaven's Door' or 'Live and Let Die' they were all overproduced and grating. And am I the only person that thinks EVERYTHING they did after Appetite for Destruction was ass? Not a case of 'not letting the band grow', they just suddenly quit having any balls or interesting things to say after that.

Oh well, I blame Axl. Or Herc. If they are indeed different people....
