    :p each to their own., I think it's an UNUSUAL version..as it says in the thread title.
    What does cfy mean...I'm guessing it's not good :D

    At least it's got people talking....I don't think it's awful, just unusual... plus it's put your curiosity to bed :D

    I'm not a huge fan of hard rockin' covers of pop songs...

    OK, fair enough :)

    Most of them aren't unusual (they're far from good either but that's more subjective maybe). Metal/rock covers just tend to be more plodding than the originals with any subtlety replaced by big chords and emoting singers. Once you've heard one, you've heard them all.

    As you say, it's subjective...all the songs I have put on here I have liked or found interesting. I know my taste isn't everyone's cup of tea....there are other songs on here I have listened to, some were dreadful, in my opinion, but the poster thought enough to put it on here, so I listen and move onto the next posting. It's a musical pick and mix.
    I do tend to put lots on, sorry for that, It's a novelty to be on a multi musical tastes forum, my other forums are purely metal/rock.
    I don't listen to mainstream music....I shall try to rein it in :oops: :)

    Back in the day I liked the Quo and will even admit to having seem them once or twice; think Caroline, Paper Plane Etc.
    But that; well that is truly dreadful! Such poor tase from you Sioux!

    Don't rein it in. What you like is what you like, and you shouldn't feel like you shouldn't express this. Urban ain't mainstream in its tastes either, people are just opinionated, but don't let this put you off posting whatever music you want. :)

    here's one that might have broad appeal - heard it this morning
    not unusual but definitely in that rare column of cover versions that undeniably best the original

    meanwhile in the 'let's kick the shit out of it and see what happens' mode . . .
