I was watching TV the other day and the clip for 'sunny' by the Boogiepimps ( ) came on. It drove me absolutely nuts. I know Boney M covered the original (which I havent heard) and it was pretty good (Boney M 's version). These mofos basically ripped Boney M (lyrics, the style of singing and core music), added in some modern generic dancebeat and a whole lot of footage of half naked women in an attempt to flog it off as their own and guess what it works if the song is featured in the top ten (I live in Australia). Basically im trying to say is that im frustrated with contemporary groups making weak covers of ol school songs. They have not added to it, making it uniquely theirs instead they are just making money off of Boney M by flogging Boney M's song to a new generation of teenage runts that never heard the original. A good cover is say 'knocking on heavens door' by GNR, I can listen to the original by Bob Dylan as well as the GNR version and appreciate them both. Other crappy covers include 'too close' by BLUE ripping off NEXT and Puffy ripping Sting (not lyrically but musically, given a beat even I can write crappy lyrics) with 'ill be missing you' (swap 'missing' for 'watching' puffy you genious ). Well im sure many of you can site other examples. Im just checking to see if anyone else gets pissed off at this cheap ripping off.
