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.

Barry, shut up and stop being ignorant buffoon. I love both versions and I'm SURE I don't need to revise my view of music.

No contest; one of the greatest bands ever playing one of the greatest songs ever against a couple of Russian eurovision wannabees doing their best to ruin an absolute classic from one of the most influential bands ever. Anyone who thinks different to this statement needs to seriously revise their view of music. This poll is analogous to healthy American(tatu)versus obesity(the smiths) obesity wins every time

i heard t.A.T.u.'s version first (i hate doing that, i try not to, but i was un-informed and didn't know it was a cover at the time ^^;) and now it's difficult for me to listen to the original version without grimacing. i think t.A.T.u.'s version is better personally but that's just me!

Best cover ever..plz..What are you smoking? I could understand if you said Love Spit Love version was the best b/c of it's popularity from the show Charmed. But T.a.t.U.'s version is nothing short from disgrace.

Sorry, but the tATu track sounds like the Alvin and the Chipmunks version. If you want to hear a good cover of this song with female vocals, check out Snake River Conspiracy's stab at it.

oh give me a break,no version is better than the original.morrissey and marr were artisitic geniuses and remain so. Tatu were just a gimmicky flash in the pan.
who will be listening to tatu in 20 years time? very few,i should think. I am 19 years old and the smiths are still having am impact on my life.
