Cover vs. Original

How soon is now


Actually, both versions are good. But the cover version is hated or beloved because of the TV-Witch-Series Charmed.
As Smith-Fan I have to vote of course for the original version!

But im surprised at you for not having tlked about the cover when all 4 charmed ones ( paige, piper , pheobe and prue) all sang the song.

The Love Spit Love version of the song has been made more popular (or hated) as a result of the TV Series Charmed. Personally I like that version for this reason - although both are good in their own ways. Smiths fans I'm sure say they don't like it just because they hate the fact it was a cover! You Know You Like It Really!!

LSL's version is appalling; it is the very definition of 'derivative' and adds nothing good to what is an incredible original.
Quicksand (alternative metal band from the 90's featuring the talented Walter Schreifels) did a nice version of it. Their version rocks, and doesn't try to copy Morrissey's vocal style.

Puh-leeze. Nobody can do this better than Morrissey and Marr. They were geniuses. Love Spit Love? I mean, I loved the P.Furs when I was a wee thing, but...

And TATU? Who?

The best cover for "How soon is now" is played by Paradise Lost as a B-side. You can search for it looking for "B-sides and Rarities" album.
