I give in. I'm completely defeated by DJ Sammy's blasphemous cover of Bryan Adams' Heaven. I can't take it anymore.
Today I heard for the first times a hard rock cover of Carly Simon's You're So Vain AND if you can believe this, a cover of DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince's Nightmare on My Street.
Don't get me wrong, I liked the "Nightmare" song as a kid, but at the time they were still making Elm Street flicks . . . why was this song redone now? It's been 8 years since the last film, it seems like strange timing. Anyway, I still like the idea of bringing this song back, but the first two I mentioned are horrifying.
(if you can tell me who did these versions of "Vain" and "Nightmare", I'll be mighty thankful )
Feel free to post about other song covers you love/hate/are indifferent to . . . here's a few off the top of my head:
Aerosmith Come Together - love it
Lenny Kravitz American Woman - love it
Marilyn Manson Highway to Hell - hate it
