Not terrible, but not that great.

I like Sheryl, but this cover just didnt do anything for me.

I actually hated it initially, but its grown on me a bit over the years.

This one though, I hated.

I like a couple of Apollo 440s tunes, but certainly not this shite.

I used to love this tune! Still don't mind it tbh. :tumbsup:

 

I'm still scarred by the recent pop/dance version of "Don't Stop Believin'". I have no interest in knowing who did it, but suffice to say they should be executed for crimes against music. An absolute disgrace. (BTW, when the original version of a song is that good, it should be illegal for anyone to cover it.)

Of course, and rock song performed on Glee is bloody awful as well (ditto for any other genre covered on that show).

I remember a dance/pop group call The Party redoing Dokken's..."In My Dreams"...

My mistake, you are correct and here it is...

I remember hearing that back in the day...I so wanted to jump through the radio and strangle those fucks.

Urgh! My ears, my ears!

 

(It was probably the Glee one I'd heard, but this is just as bad.)
