Hendrix???? More like Jackson. ac_unsure

In any event, that Japanese version is a major improvement. ac_biggrin


I was joking about Hendrix.

It looks like it got taken down. I could probably find it from a different source, but it might not be worth the effort.

It was a pretty cool version. Too bad it got flushed at the source.

The original artist, from what I read in the form of hearsay, seems wary of this being on YouTube.

Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns & Roses/Performed by Taken by Trees

phpBB [video]


She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long
I'd probably break down and cry

Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

She's got eyes of the bluest skies
As if they thought of rain
I'd hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain

Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
Where as a child I'd hide
And pray for the thunder and the rain
To quietly pass me by

[3x]
Sweet child o' mine
Sweet love of mine

[4x]
Where do we go?
Where do we go now?
Where do we go?
Sweet child o' mine

I've always been an Idol fan. Not necessarily for his music, but for his "show"...

One of my favourite tracks is 'Dancing with Myself.'

The Donna's didn't do too badly with their version...

Sleepwalk is one of my favourite tracks...

However, it can never be topped. It can never be "re-done" in a better fashion than the original.

Purely instrumental, it cannot be topped with new vocals. Purely a ballad, it cannot be "stepped up" properly and performed any faster...

Sleep Walk is an anomoly... The original can never be really touched. And it can't.

Your opinion is your opinion and being YOUR opinion, it ain't worth shit so far as anyone with a brain is concerned.

Here's a Cover of a Bob Dylan song, sung by Canadian singer Tom Northcott

phpBB [video]

Girl From North Country Fair

Here's the original by Dylan:

phpBB [video]


If you're traveling in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was the true love of mine.

If you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see if she's a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see if her hair hangs long
If it rolls and flows all down her breast
Please see from me if her hair hangs long
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remember me at all
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine.

It's My Party by Lesley Gore

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone
But Judy left the same time
Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night
But leave me alone for a while
Till Johnny's dancin' with me
I've got no reason to smile

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Judy and Johnny just walked through the door
Like a queen with her king
Oh what a birthday surprise
Judy's wearin' his ring

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Oh it's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to

Songwriters
ELOF LOELV, HERBERT WEINER, JOHN GLUCK, MARCUS SEPEHRMANESH, SEYMOUR GOTTLIEB, TYRONE GRIFFIN, WALLY GOLD

Then re-release your version of Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk."

Do it... I dare ya!

What you will find, is that your idea is a joke.

Most songs can be re-done, and many are, to be sold at a profit...

That is ONE song that cannot be, ever.

Like I said, it is an anomaly...

Mel, you're a moron, but then again looking at your posting time, I'm sure you were polluted when you shit out that inane pile of stupid.

Any song can be covered....whether or not you like the original version or the cover is irrelevant. Just like the concept of beauty....musical taste is highly subjective. Its a matter of pure opinion.

Now I appreciate your passion on the subject but in the grand scheme of things, it means nothing to me or anyone else unless we agree. Since we don't agree then....you can just bugger off. ac_biggrin
