Gotta agree with boo boo there... Return of the Giant Hogweed = Genesis in full early era flight of awesomeness!

I obviously like Lady Gaga. But I can appreciate good covers.
This isn't better, and Telephone wasn't a bad song.
In the cover, I feel like there's a LOT going on, and I don't know if that's good or just overwhelming.

i like pomplamoose's better,cause:
1. it's a million times less slutty
2. it sounds better as an indie pop song
3. i simply don't like lady gaga, this thread is all opinion isn't it

Also, I like Cash but I think his cover of Hurt is overrated, I still prefer the original.

Yeah I wasn't saying they are bad originals at all. They are all very, very good. I can't find any bad songs that have been covered because if I don't like the song originally then I wont bother with the remake (even if it is from an artist I like).

Spunge's version of Belinda Carlisles' "Circles In The Sand" is pretty good, they take a bland pop record and turn it into a skapunk thrash. Pretty good IMO

Hey, I got a chance to give that cover of Hogweed.... it was actually pretty darn good!!! I am suprised at how the vocals sounded very gabriel - esque.... whether the singer was trying to sound that way or not, I dunno... but i have read in many places that the very unique phrasing and chord structure of early Genesis makes any singer sound a little bit like Gabriel... early critics after his departure from the band actually attacked Phil Collins for sounding too Gabriel like, which in the context of where their careers lked to, is kinda funny to read...

The song isn't even slutty.
I guess the rest is according to your opinion.
But how can a song that's not slutty be more slutty than another one...?
