    Macy Gray is talented, but. . . .

    . . . she is going to burn for all eternity for what she did to "Walk This Way."

    No for this one!

    And don't it, either. You'll only encourage more such crap.
    That's my jacket!

    Re: Macy Gray is talented, but. . . .

    Back when her first album came out she was on MTV having an interview and she kept saying like 50 times, "my new album dropping" "my new album dropping"
    "my new album dropping""my new album dropping""my new album dropping"....
    I told myself "if she promote her album one more time, I'm smashing the TV....."
    well............I was preoccupied at the moment.
    No matter how I die, even if there is a suicide note; it was murder. Cheers!

    It's almost as bad as Lenny Kravitz's American Woman.

    OH my god, who's the idiot that signed this American Idol reject? Her voice is hard to listen to. It makes me kind of sick.

    Donald Rumsfeld briefed the President this morning. He told Bush that 3 Brazilian solders were killed in Iraq. all the color drained from Bush's face,visibly shaken, almost in tears. Finally, he composed himself and asked Rumsfeld, "Just exactly how many is a brazillion?

    You know there aren't many cover songs that are good. I just wish they would stay original. Oh and that reminds me of 311. They came up with that all entertainer come original, but then they did a cover song from the Cure. LOL

    When Run-DMC covered this tune back in the day, their version was considered a revolutionary, visionary classic, melding the worlds of rap and rock in a way nobody ever really thought possible on a mainstream level, and in many ways, gave a newfound respect to the fledgling rap music scene from widespread audiences throughout America.

    What Macy Gray has done to this tune is totally the opposite, she mangles this tune like a tone-deaf American Idol-wannabe, and in the most unfocused way possible, creating absolutely no bridge between her brand of hip-hop/R&B and the bluesy-hard rock tone of the original band, all the while amplifying the worst aspects of her unique style.

    Steve is right, when the commercial with this comes on TV, I change the channel. I'm all for trying something new, but not only is her rendition not new, it's horribly unlistenable to the point of abject irritation.
