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.

Nobody could ever repeat Gilmour's guitar solos. especially on this one: the great Comfortably Numb.

I'd rather eat my own 'nads than hear that cover again.

I love the Sisters, but that is just dire.

I think everyone should heatr the Dar Williams/Ani Difranco version. Great stuff.

It's almost an unfair comparison. They're entirely different songs, both equally good, but for vastly different genres.

I've heard the Scissor Sisters version, and it was great, but nothing beats the original Floyd!
