Cover vs. Original

It's My Life


I never understood why No Doubt is considered to be a throw-back to the 80's.

Give me Talk Talk anyday..Stefani's whining, tinny vocals completely drain the song of all it's depth and plaintive quality and what we are left with is a cheap, plastic remake of a brilliantly written and intelligent pop song. The thing that annoys me most is that any younger person who who bought the No Doubt version will think that the impossibly blonde Stefani and her cohorts actually wrote the song...sorry Gwen - stick to yodelling and please don't destroy any more classy, intelligent pop music!

I liked the No Doubt version, but the original is superior... one of the best songs ever made.

I can count on one hand how many covers I like better than the original, and this is one of them. No Doubt GETS 80's music, and they get this song, and they actually make it more interesting and give it more range. The video doesn't hurt either.

I voted for the original, cause they actually wrote the song. It has a great bass line, and a angry energy that Gwendolin can only read about. That said, I really enjoy the cover, but still wish I was listening to the original instead.

Hey Matt, I guess they're thought of in a similar way that the ska & new wave bands are in that they followed-up & kinda popped-up the punk & grundgy music scene of their day. Does that make sense?
