Cover vs. Original

I Will Survive


Cake's version of this oft karaoked song slows it down and puts a bit of rock into it.

For me Gloria Gaynor's version is superior. It has this great energy. The Cake one is funny the first time you hear it but then gets really boring...

btw I hated the Robbie version :-S

I just can't swallow Cake's style, sounds like crap to me. I don't think it would be hard to make a good cover of this song, but cake's surely isn't it.
Consider looking into Robbie William's Love Supreme, he changes the lyrics but is the exact same song.

The cake version soooo kicks ass of the other if for no other reason than it's NOT disco, but it's also much less pretentious and snottier, and it's played with a fun attitude the other couldn't possibly muster.
