    I can't stand the remake of "Killing me Softly" by the Fugees. They killed that song.

    Assuming it is serious, if you are interested you can hear the original by going to imeem.com and searching for "bobby brown my prerogative". It was a pretty big R&B/HipHop hit in the early 90s and it really is a much better song than the Britney Spears version.
    nope, I was serious...I am constantly amazed at the songs that end up being remakes.

    Romeo and Juliet- The Killers
    Take my breath away- Jessica Simpson...the woman can't sing, and sounds like she's having sex through out every song she sings. Thank you for ruining an amazing love song by an amazing vocalist like Berlin.
    Every cover Britney Spears did..

    "Boys of Summer" by the Ataris.
    Don Henley's song was awesome.

    I just heard this today. Some songs should never be covered. NEVER.

    Well, Mary's no Robert Plant, but it wasn't as awful as I expected.
    Perhaps, because I'm used to her doing a lot of stuff with Bono?

    Or, maybe because I watch too much AI and I am just used to people slaughtering a lot of songs.

    I generally like MJB. I think my biggest problem with it is that it sounds like any "generic" R&B song. If you are going to cover an iconic song, at least give it some OOMPH!

    People who cover songs like this have enormous shoes to fill. If you aren't going to blow me away, don't bother. (Yes, I am hard to please in this regard )

    I have never watched AI and I stopped watching DWTS mostly because the house band is sooooo awful. But I love a good cover and I thoroughly enjoyed the two seasons of Rock Star (INXS & Supernova). I almost wish some band would fire their singer so we could get another season!

    Have to totally agree with you on both counts.
    Not much chance, though, that CBS will bring back Rock Star.
    It didn't do well in the ratings, unfortunately.
