I just had to share this song, its a remake of the "Sound of Silence.....much different from the original version but has a lot of deep feeling to it. 

 

  

 

Then I came across another version I like 

 

A metal version 

 

 

 

I know Disturbed did a remake of this song, but I think it is awful.

Oddly enough, I liked the remake by Disturbed, but my favourite is still the original.

Being a music snob i was kind of chafing at all the "sacrilegious" remakes of great tunes from the "good old days" of my youth.  Whether it's Summer Breeze by Type O Negative https://www.youtube....h?v=XNo7ZZryuSQ (check it out if you like the song) or that Boston thrash band trying to cover Good Times Bad Times, it just ain't the same as the original.

Today I heard what sounded like the guy from Soundgarden (really like him) covering Sinead O'connor (remember her?)... and Cyndi lauper covering Patsy Cline of all people... blasphemy!

 

Then i thought, hey, it's a tribute, those old songs really were that good.  It's all pop music, the singers get old, lose their voices, pass on... why not keep the music alive while you can still make the music sound good yourself....?...

Do you remember how many rock songs were remakes of songs from the 50s? Love Potion #9, House of the Rising Sun, all remakes of old black tunes.

 

Sounds of Silence; it's more prophetic every day.

The remakes of House Of the Rising Sun and Bad Company are two of my favorite songs!

Most songs that are remakes just make me sick.....

On the other hand, some are actually better than the original......but not this one!

Long live Simon & Garfunkel.

I watched that "Disturbed" one a while back and about all I got out of it was that I see where the name of the band came from.

 

A couple of weeks ago I had to do some tests in the lab at work which is staffed by a couple very of young women. Of course they play a current hip hop type of radio station so I try real hard to tune it out, but one rapping thing seemed to have a familiar lyric. I finally figured out that a rap version of a song I like real well in the original and a remake version BUT not this remake!

 

In '68 (I think) when I was 11, my sisters took me to see Marilee Rush and the Turnabouts who had that song as a big hit at the time, "Angel of the Morning".  That's song the rappers were doing! Juice Newton did a country remake of that song in the late '70's. Now, from what I understand, that rap version is an "oldie" in the hip hop world----

 

Most remakes disappoint me and it seems that live music often has so much "artistic freedom" that it is very hard to even recognize what you are hearing to the original, even by the original artist!

 

Next Wednesday night my wife and I are going up to Deadwood to see "Heart". I hope they play somewhat like the music that made them famous!

The new groups have no artistic ability so they insist on screwing up good "old" songs. Listening to Johnny Horton right now doing "Shake, Rattle and Roll"

As an artist myself I tend to appreciate many peoples work. I find that if you get fixated on the"original" then you won't allow yourself to accept anything other then what your use to. I find when an Artist can add a twist to something to make it well new again I find it a refreshing way of living with a blast of the past.
