Me, myself and I

It's just not that simple.

Music :)
general: music_ralphwiggum
It rarely ever happens that I enjoy a cover of a song to begin with.
And so far I don't remember ever having liked the cover version of a song a lot better than the original one.
Until now...

Some Germans on my flist (or maybe even some Europeans) might know Scala & Kolacny Brothers. It's a Belgian girl's choir who covered a lot of famous contemporary songs.
So, all day, I've been listening to With or Without You. It's awesome! I like it soooo much better than U2's original (which is quite an accomplishment considering that I really like U2 :)). It's sooooo incredibly awesome *melts*

"Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you"

Soooo good - so much longing and passion and desire :)
Anyone into half-classic music should definitely check these girls out (LOL - and this sounds so wrong... :P).

oooo, Love that song!

*sudenly notices folder full of random songs with your name on it, sitting on my desktop*

I forgot all about that :P

I'll send it when its not the middle of the night.

It's awesome, isn't it?

LOL! Actually, I thought of those songs some days ago but I didn't really want to ask... yet ;)

Thanks a billion, looking forward to it!


Lesson one when dealing with me:

I have a memory like a fish. Always feel free to poke me about things. Everyone in RL does :P

Hehe, okay - will keep that in mind ;)

Interesting! A classical choir version . . . I know a lot of cover songs I like better than the originals--much of Gregorian's music. Have you heard their stuff? They sing pop songs in a "gregorian" style, though they imitate the instrumentation a lot. They've got a lot of neat covers, and a couple songs of theirs are originals (The Gift is *fantastic*).

I have a bunch of it already uploaded, you're welcome to try it out--With or Without You is on Chapter IV (and I like their version a bit better than U2's, though I like that too):

Gregorian - (2000) Masters of Chant: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=EZR2AXQD
Gregorian - (2001) Masters of Chant Chapter II: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZPNI6DUJ
Gregorian - (2002) Masters of Chant Chapter III: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=RTTU8ONH
Gregorian - (2003) Masters of Chant Chapter IV (not III, please ignore my goof in description): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=D8A49LU3
Gregorian - (2006) Masters of Chant Chapter V: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KK6GUOW0

And I will have to look up music by these girls. It sounds rather nice, very simple.
