Cover vs. Original

Cats In The Cradle


Chapins original was a numer 1 hit in 1974. Ugly Kid Joe could also enter the top 10 with their cover version in 1993. But I like Harry Chapins version better.

The scores for this track are changed for sure, Ugly Kid Joe owns this song, I never like best the cover, but here the original suck.

UKJ's verson is better and I'll tell you why... the contempt in Whitfield Crane's voice as he sings that song gets to me every time. He's one of the few singers that can pull that emotion almost every time.

I have to go with the underdog here...The original was good... but IMHO this is one cover that outshines it's parent.

UKJ is modern...but for me being the age I am, can't beat the original.
