Cover vs. Original

Along Comes Mary


Just found out by chance that the rock version of the Bloodhound Gang is only a cover of a swing version of the 60s. It is a sort of funny to listen to the original version, but I like the rock version better!
By the way: "Mary" stands for Marihuana ;)

The Bloodhouse Gang's version does not hold a candle to The Association's original version. The BG relies on technology exclusively, and the finished product is dull and boring. It's a cool "rock" version in a sense, but is far outclassed by The A's sheer musical taste and harmonies. If you think different, it shows how much you know about music in general, which is not much.

Patrick's correct. The Addrisi brothers KNEW what Cmaj7 and min7 chords were. . . and progressions other than "C-D-G". Far and away better'n this BHG tripe. AND all original, tool.

Bloodhound Gangs' version is really good. the other one is just gash! My vote goes to BHG

The original song is stupid. The BHG's cover is even better at being stupid. My vote goes for BHG.

It's not swing, it's sunshine pop. And hell, at least the Association had talent; the BHG version of the song had no vocal harmonies, or any musical inspiration or substance behind it at all.

There is something about this song being a 60s swing song that i don't like. my vote goes to BHG.
