Cover vs. Original

The Joker / The Grosser


Both versions sound pretty good. I can hardly decide for one version.
p.s. Steve Miller sings this song in English while Fettes Brot sings it in German.
So you can even learn something ;-)

The German Version changes the lyrics drastically, but over all it sounds very much like the Steve Miller Version. I would have to admit though that Fettes Brot, while talented, doesn't hold a candle to Steve Miller in this song. By the way, Grosser in German means the Great...Joker in German is Joker. This is just one of the many changes Fettes Brot made to the song.
