Cover vs. Original

How Soon is Now

This is one of the best covers made ever!
I liked the single "all the things she says" and the video of T.A.T.U. before I heard this cover of the famous Smiths song.
When I got the cd and listened to it I was quite surprised how many good songs were on it.
Of course the original version is very good too. Why this cover never made it big is a mystery to me.
The creativity of Trever Horn and the voices of Julia Olegovna Volkova and Elena Sergeevna Katina and very talented musicians together created one of the best covers of all time.

Katie, you obviously have no idea about the Smiths, that sort of comment has no value, and I suspect neither do you. The Smiths version, however, is incomparable.

The cover of TATU is very good, at least even good as the original and I am a Smiths fan... :) so dont make nasty remarks, just enjoy the music you like.

Cover versions can be a great way of re-introducing fantastic music to a younger generation. Re-packaged into bubble gum pop people might have a listen who would normally ignore it...BUT come on How Soon is Now is a Classic!! leave it alone!
