Cover vs. Original

Heaven


One is a classic power ballad that screams "1980s!" The other is a Euro-dance techno staple worthy of inclusion in the soundtrack to Dance Dance Revolution. Both are extremely insipid, yet both are extremely catchy.

Bryan Adams serves up a slice of a decade many of us would rather forget, complete with early-generation synthesizer lines and that oh-so-dated snare drum sound. More recently, DJ Sammy managed to do him one better and transform Adams' song into an even more soulless rave-friendly dance tune.

So the real question, then, is: Which of these tracks can you not help but find yourself hopelessly addicted to?

Each is good at different times - wanting a classic power ballad that screams "1980s!" choose Bryan; wanting a Euro-dance techno choose DJ Sammy
