Gotta go with BrokenQuill on this one.


I like Rufus, but that was sooooo vanilla. There was no emotion and he entirely misses the irony.

And he got some of the words wrong.

My pick: the original nothing beats the gorgeous voice of Ms. Menzel

Song: Smoke On The Water



VS




My Pick: Gotta go with the cover here for sheer fucking awesomeness. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

My pick: DIGITAL UNDERGROUND if Wolfpac had made it first, we wouldn't even know this song.

This will shock a lot of people but I'm going with the chubby Asian kid. Whitney has Performed the song so many times that it has no passion, Not that her voice is amazing or anything. But you can really hear the feeling in this kid's voice.

The Song: Poison
Original: Alice Cooper
Cover: Groove Coverage




VS




My opinion: I almost always prefer rock to dance/pop, but in this case the Groove Coverage version leaves me with chills while Alice Cooper just makes me cringe.

RE: Who did it better? Original artist vs cover artist.
Anyone listen to the punk goes pop albums?....It's not really "Punk", it's more metalcore, but if you like metal/screamo check em out. There's only one song on the 5 albums I think was done better in the original....Airplanes by B.o.B was covered by the Ready set and it was terrible...all the other songs are gold tho.
