Re: Music - Covers that are better than the Originals

I think that my all-time favourite has to be "Ken Lee(Without You)" by Valentina Hasan, the original by Mariah Carey - breathed new life into one of the truly most dreadful songs ever made - well worth a watch on YouTube ^O^ ^O^ Paul G Actually, that song was originally recorded by Badfin...

Re: Name that tune

Not sure anyone is going to get my track -

It is “Welcome To The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance

Wolfie was closest so I think he should pick the next one

Re: Name that tune

No that one wasn’t one of mine - didn’t know that one either - I started listening to some Gordon Lightfoot after Peter chose “Sundown” - a track I know and like but hadn’t heard for many years and didn’t know who performed it

You're nearly there Steve - "Parade" is part of the title.

No - it is an American band however - this track was a big hit both sides of the Atlantic in 2006 - the band is probably better known by it's initials(to fans at least :) )

Re: Music - Covers that are better than the Originals

Thank Jill, Dave Always interesting to see people’s music tastes and be introduced to something new I never knew that Wet Wet Wet number wasn’t the original, and am very keen to hear Yngwe Malmsteens take on Carry on My Wayward Son - one of my all time favourites. I really like some of the covers do...

Music - Covers that are better than the Originals

Got to thinking about this this morning while rowing - one of my favourites came up on my MP3 and I played it on repeat 3 times :lol: :lol: As a general rule I prefer the original to cover versions but I thought I would make a list of some covers which I think are better than the originals - purely ...

Sorry Paul. I’ve absolutely no idea. You may need to brush up on your EMO credentials :D :D - this song is something of an EMO anthem. "When I was a young boy My father took me into the city To see a marching band He said, "Son, when you grow up Would you be the savior of the broken The b...

OK, so it is not "Yankee Doodle Dandy"! :twisted: :roll: Having seen the movie of that title on more than one occasion, could you possibly be referring to "Over There" by George M Cohan? Just realised I was replying to the wrong post! #-o Paul, is the song you are quoting from &...

OK - if there are no takers and nobody minds I will put up one for those of us this side of the Atlantic :

My father took me into the city

Re: Name that tune

Obviously not as well-known as I thought it was - The band is Talking Heads(David Byrne, in conjunction with Brian Eno, was very involved in "electro-pop"). The album is "Stop Making Sense" - hence the reference to political speeches :D Hopefully from that someone will know the t...

American band - 80's - album title is an apt description of your average political speech.

Re: Any experiences with Hip Replacement / Osteo-arthritis?

Hi Mat, I think your consultant's advice is spot on - delay the inevitable for as long as possible - that unfortunately means that ultra-marathon and trail running are no-no's. I did quite a bit of ultra-marathon running in my twenties, but stopped before I did any lasting damage. Running down 30% g...
