Cover vs. Original

Comfortably Numb


You got to give a band credit for turning a rather beautiful ballad into a balls-out disco rock tune. It took guts. And I totally commend the Scissor Sisters for their unique creation... besides the fact that I adore the band! Anyone who says they don't like this cover just doesn't want to give it a chance.

Comfortably Numb is a great song, but also rather sad song. The cover of the Sisters, even with the "disco" drive, could not make it any happier! But I like it, more than other covers of the song. For those who want to understand the strenght of all The Wall compositions, listen to "Luther Wright & the Wrongs - Rebuild the Wall' They recorded the "country" version of The Wall! It is very amusing and all the songs stay as strong as they are, even played in a different music style! Listen carefully to the smaal changes in teh lyric's into country style, very funny; instead of pudding it chicken!

This cover is really awful. Comfortably numb is one and only

Some reason, I just had to kill the window with Scissor Sisters. UNFORTUNATLEY, it REALLY reminded me of a band doing a disco-cover of the Stones "Satisfaction". Painfull. Unequivocally, Floyd, this time.

Although Pink Floyd's is very lyric driven and a rock classic. The Sisters gave a fine tribute to them, by making it grooveble.

I love the way tha the sisters say relax like Frankie Goes to Hollywood and how they do an AH ah ah ah in the finest Bee Gees tradition. What a great, "up yours" (to stuck in the muds) and caustic interpretation of the soul touching floyd version. Where floyd is humanitarian, sisters are icy and (dare i say it) gay! Long live Lsd and Extasy dysfunction.

AS a Pink Floyd fan I didn't even know the Scissor Sisters did this song. I guess I should do more Googling, now that UTorrent has gone ass-up! I'm from the 80's generation, (is that X, Y or Z???) I didn't do LSD but I know the Floyd, (or part of), did. I think Extasy is the modern version of LSD, and Pink Floyd's base beat comes close to the human heart beat, a comfort zone for the Eccy Head. I really don't like to admit that I like both versions for their own merit.

Ten years from now people will still be listening to the Pink Floyd original; I doubt there will be that many people that will even remember the Scissor Sisters cover.
