Well Cindy, I finally heard the No Doubt version of It's My Life. I must admit that I liked it, allot. I think they did a good job. I happen to like No Doubt anyway, met them back in 97 at a concert in Milwaukee.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that it's a rare thing for me to like cover songs, but I did enjoy this one. [Smile]

Hey Steven, 'I drove all Night' by Cyndi Lauper came from the album 'A Night To Remember' 1989.
The version of Roy Orbison indeed came from his album 'Mystery Girl' but that was 1992.
You could still be right though, I don't know. But this is what I read on cyndilauper.com:

'I Drove All Night' notes

Cyndi said the song was written for Roy Orbison (who later recorded it), but he turned it down at that point. She wanted to do it because she liked the idea "of a woman driving, of a woman in control." She said she liked the unique concept.

Yeah, Mariah Carey did cover Def Leppard's "Bringing on the Heartbreak" on her last album. I actually saw the video for it once on VH-1.

I saw the video for Big in Japan and had to have the song, so I downloaded it off of the internet. I am going to buy the album forever young soon, I want to hear more of Alphaville. I like Aztec Camera as well.

Cindy- they were really great! They were so nice to me, they gave me free cds and autographs! It was so much fun, we hung out with them for like an hour.

I saw the No Doubt video as well, not sure what to make of it. I heard they are releasing a whole album of covers. There's not many covers that I enjoy. Orgy's cover of New Order's Blue Monday was heavier than the original, but the original is so perfect it's hard to see why anyone else would attempt to cover it. Frente covered Bizarre Love Triangle, but did it differently with acoustic, which was nice. I liked the Cowboy Junkies version of Sweet Jane, made it their song. Would love to hear their version of the Cure's Seventeen Seconds as well. I think Sinead O'connor's version of Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U was better than the original.

huge no doubt fan here too. i actually really liked the cover. i can't stop listening to it.
about them releasing a bunch of covers, not totally positive but someone mentioned it on one of their message boards and i think it was just a rumor that was started. they are releasing a box set with alot of live stuff, singles and music videos but no covers.
can't stand celine dion so i felt quite sick when i heard her cover of i drove all night. ugh.

What about Marilyn Manson and his cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams"? Another one that should be shot for that!

Altho there is a club mix of "Sweet Dreams" out there that was done in 1996 by a club band (I forgot the name) and it sounded pretty good!

I have a version of Sweet Dreams done by Miss kittina nd the Hacker on a compilation. Their debut album has a great 80's sound.

Eh,... I have to admit that it is about the only cover song I like. [Embarrassed] [Smile] In fact it's the only MM song I like...
I liked the original 'Eutythmics version' better, but then again, I try to look at them as two different songs.

I don't like Marilyn Manson or any of their remakes. I think their cover of Tainted Love is the worst!

and what's REALLY funny is that Soft Cell covered that song, they did not write it. A lady during the 60's wrote it. I will try to remember her name....Carolyn somebody....

You've obvoiusly never heard our version of Crazy Horses then.... [Big Grin]

As a drummer in an unashamed 'covers' band, some stuff is fun to do, and some stuff should be left well alone. Much of the 80s introduced an element of 'processing' to songs, so that they are actually very tough to play live and do justice to. We have to be very careful about the songs we cover, and those we do choose (like 'Dont Dream Its Over' and 'Love Shack', for example) we try to get as close to the original as we can, so that people recognise the elements of the original.

What I really hate is covers that make you hear the original, and the actual song sounds nothing like what you remember. Still, it's all fun to do. To see what we have decided to cover, take a look at our set list at The EOS Website.

I thought I heard that somewhere Jaymi. Let me know if you remember her name cuz I'm curious now!

As for the Soft Cell's version, I'm kinda sick of it because it's played so much on the radio here during retro lunch and 80s at 8.

I like it best when the long version is played at this 80s club I go to. The whole place gets up and sings together. It reminds me of a scene taken right out of an 80s flick. Now if I could get everybody to do the same dance..... [Big Grin]

I finally heard this song, I guess I don't get out much...cause I rarely listen to the radio, except when driving somewhere, and I guess I actually lucked out, cause I wasn't missing anything-as usual. Nobody can come up with anything new, so they heard a great song, that they know alot of kids now have never heard and they hurried up and did the exact same thing, and made a million dollars off it. Don't they deserve it- "no doubt"! Not!

Oh man...I just saw this video this morning for the first time...it was awful. It was so dumb, and just thrown together, without any reasoning, and the guy in the tub with toaster, and her and the fake tears, ick! That was dumb.

I thought No Doubt's cover was pretty good. And I have to say that Gwen Stefani is mad hot in my opinion. It isn't very often that a song comes out these days that I like. I'm not into rap or death metal and all that. I am glad that Al Green released a new CD. He's my fav singer. I also enjoy the new Matchbox 20 cd alot.
