Cover vs. Original

Hiroshima


A difficult topic, which was set to music in the 70s by Wishful Thinking. But even today the song counts as a hymn and an evergreen. In 1990 the German pop singer Sandra jumped on the bandwagon and covered this song to refresh the discussion about the nuclear bomb thrown onto Hiroshima - and she had a big success (Top 5 in Germany). However, the original sounds more honest - Sandra's version is too electronic.

Comments about Hiroshima:

Sandra Lauer was very wonderful with her performance of "Hiroshima", though Wishful Thinking's original version is still quite probably the most beautiful song ever sang.
