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.

That's why I hate fanboys. Scissor Sisters' cover is awesome, MUCH BETTER than original, who causes sleep.

Oh my God, is this an insult to rock music or what? What the hell were they thinking of covering a rock classic in such a way that I don't think even dance clubbers would like. They are a bunch of talentless, boring twats who can only get fame by fucking up a pink floyd classic, there is no melody like the origonal, the singing sounds like a demented bird and the key parts of the song with the solos are completely missed out. I'm sure Gilmore and Waters are regretting giving them permission to re-do one of their most influential songs, this is a clear example of why Rock is nothing like shit dance music. The cover had no emotion to it. The song was meant to reflect a mans insanity and was meant to grip people feeling which the origonal did with brilliant accuracy. Roger Waters brilliant origonal vocals and Gilmores mind bending guitaring can't be matched by some pathetic dance beat thats repeated over and over again and probably could be composed by a 4 year old. Siccor Sisters should be ashamed of their pathetic attempt to match Floyd's brilliance. Please stick to your own shitty dance tunes and don't mess with Rock again.

I admire the fact that a band wants to look towards a rock legend for inspiration. That being said, Comfortably Numb is a melancoly type song from an album based on a man who's life story is rather depressing. How anyone could attempt to make this strongly emotional song upbeat is well beyond my taste. Im not feeling it, sorry. This cover gets 2 thumbs down And one middle finger up.

Hands down the most useless cover ever, by a woefully untalented band who exhibit a massive lack of musical respect for pissing all over a masterpiece.

why is it whenever someone doesn't like something they have 2 express it in an inarticulate rage.just say u dont like it. i happen 2like scissor sisters' version n i am neither gay nor a crossdresser. u weaken your arguement by insulting other people's opinions


.. There is no argument. But that cover is just fucking trash. I regret wasting 3 minutes of my life listening to it. The Scissor Sisters have Nothing on Pink Floyd.
