I must say even with many songs remake with more sophisticated music arrangements, I still prefer the original versions.
1) Bohemian Rhapsody- Queen vs Lauryn Hill
2) Big Yellow Taxi- Joni Mitchell vs Counting Crows
3) Mandy- Barry Manilow vs Westlife
4) Uptown Girl- Billy Joel vs Westlife
5) Knocking On Heaven's Door- Bob Dylan vs Guns 'N' Roses
6) How Deep Is Your Love- Bee Gees vs Take That
7) Superwoman- Karyn White vs "That disgusting chinese version"
8) Dyer Maker- Led Zeppelin vs Sheryl Crow
9) First Cut Is The Deepest- Rod Stewart vs Sheryl Crow
10) Don't Dream It's Over- Crowded House vs Sixpence None The Richer
11) You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman- Carole King vs Celine Dione

welll yeah... agree with gallivanter.

BUT.... how about "The Man Who Sold The World" ? Original by David Bowie... then Kurt Cobain unplugged it in New York. Here, i'd prefer Kurt's. Man... i listened to David's version and I felt it kinda funny.

Westlife sang many of Abba's songs.

jt: I din know Westlife sang More Than Words! the nerve of them! And i hate that You Raise Me Up song...
gallivanter: people who re-sang the originals just lacks the passion that the original singer had. They just wanna sing it better without really feeling the words.
endroo g: unfortunately, i dont really like Nirvana..i like David Bowie though...some songs....but you're right. Some remakes do sound better than the originals...
And..i hate boy bands..westlife or any other.

I know a remake the sounds better than the original, WONDERWALL. :-)

Westlife needs to be put to sleep.

endroo, you may prefer Nirvana's version, but I bet majority of the old timers prefer the original. It's like kids these days saying they prefer Westlife's version of Uptown Girl (as it's been drilled into their minds, thus Billy Joel version to them sucks..)
