And so far I don't remember ever having liked the cover version of a song a lot better than the original one.
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).
