Cover vs. Original

Cinnamon Girl


I like the Type O Negative version. They did not simply "cover" or "remake" the song; they reinvented it.

I cringe whenever I hear the Neil Young version, but Type O Negative took a worthless song and turned it into gold. Anyone who voted for Young is over 45 or never heard the Type O cover.

I always liked it when Neil did it... but Type O really nails it with that drum line. It's one of the best songs to move to I've ever heard. Their version gets me writhing wherever I am.

Hell yeah.
