It's just being lazy! Besides, most of these covers are frankly a lot blander than their original counterparts, so there's pretty much no reason for me to listen to them in the first place. Case in point - the Danger Zone cover from SEB 212. While it isn't really bad per se, it just doesn't have any of the same spark that made the Top Gun version so catchy. The combination of Kenny Loggins' sharp vocals and the 80's hard rock instrumentation just worked with the tune so much more effectively than this bland interpretation.
I see where you are comming from ,from one point of view. I agree on the lazy factor, but only if the remake is from the dance genre. The reason is, that making a remake from an allready known dance song isn't such a st;etch for Eurobeat. Its basiaclly just speeding up the tempo, like those Madonna covers they did. I don't like covers of recent pop songs nither , because now adays pop is more dance than anything else. Unless they decide to cover Nickelback or Shinedown, which I doubt they will.
, but I'll go on the record and say, that I do enjoy most Eurobeat covers of 80 Rock songs. The Danger Zone
cover was nice. The Jailhouse Rock
one was even better. I've been on Saifams site before and have even previewed covers of songs like "Shake It UP" ect.. from the 80s. A rock cover sounds completely different in that, the intruments are usually always from a different soundworld. I see more of a creative and original factor when I hear covers like those.
Dall Ora and Dima also did great New Wave covers on SEB 193. Save A Prayer
is a bonifide classic
In closing, I don't care too much for this Morgana cover, but only cuz its a dance song to begin with. That's where I agree with your "laziness" factor.
BTW, does anyone have a link to the Saifam site that is actually useful for previewing the songs without all those ram files. Something where you actually just click on the headphone icon and the song starts playing without B.S.?
