Is Ednaswap deservedly overlooked? Yeah. Far inferior to the cover. Hope you enjoyed this little match of nineties nostalgia!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOZuxwVk7TU VS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vngbxwRPIOw When I fist discovered a cover for "Toxic", I was intrigued. While Britney isn't my favorite artist, she does have a few perfect pop songs, and I love this one. Mark Ronson? Usually pretty good producer. I like his retro-flavored work and he often has solid collaborations. Let the bout begin! As … Continue reading “Toxic”- Britney Spears VS. Mark Ronson ft. Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Tiggers
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ViwtNLUqkMY VS https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=daozNAHEn7k Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love” is one of the biggest songs of my generation. I remember loving it when it came out an hearing it over and over absolutely everywhere! 18 years out, I think it’s still fantastic. Covers? I’d never come across any ‘till now. Bout of the century? Not quite. The … Continue reading “Crazy In Love”- Beyoncé VS The Magic Numbers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWCZse1iwE0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe1Ge8uXbck Oh, man... I feel strange even presenting this match-up for you today. Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice" is a classic, even for proclaimed rap-adverse listeners like myself. It's a killer beat and flow that's undeniably fun very now and then. The music video is a nostalgic blast too. That's a lot of praise … Continue reading “Gin And Juice”- Snoop Dogg VS The Gourds
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VerK4zwMRQw https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=awjE92YZeEQ I know The Futureheads’ cover was a huge hit. Charted #8 vs Bush’s at #18. NME called the punk version version the single of the year for 2005. In 2011, it was ranked number 89 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years". The original never seems to get as … Continue reading “Hounds of Love”- Kate Bush VS The Futureheads
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MomyaekDrdA VS https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NxoRHqc1iDk Well, this is an ugly match with a beautiful song. Definitely not a fan of nu-metal to begin with, and Limp Bizkit does absolutely nothing interesting with this cover. It struts into the ring as insincere as it is terrible in virtually every way. Boo! Easy win for The Who!
