October 31, 2008

The Smiths’ ‘There is a Light That Never Goes Out’ vs Schneider TM’s ‘Light3000’

The Smiths

Schneider TM

Both of these are amazing, but IMO the reworking narrowly pips the original. 

The scores so far: O 1-1 TR


Beach House – Master of None

This band rules! Devotion is proving to be a pretty strong contender for Album of the Year 2008.

Original vs Trendy Reworking #1

October 28, 2008

In this series of posts we’ll be asking which do you prefer: the original tune or a trendy, sampled, remixed or reworked version. Here’s the first one: ‘Blue on Blue’ by Bobby Vinton (B. Bacharach) vs Royksopp’s ‘So Easy’

‘Blue on Blue’ by Bobby Vinton

‘So Easy’ by Royksopp

I’ll go for Bobby Vinton. What do you think?
