Stephen T. McCarthy's Battle of the Bands! And darn if I'm not on board this crazy train.
Okay, here's my submissions for June 15th. I'm a big fan of the song "Torn" and boy, it's been done by a lot of people. Who's the cover and who's the original? Most people would guess Natalie Imbruglia was the original, but they'd be wrong.
As I lined up covers, I decided they all sounded like pop to me now; just to highlight that point, let's throw Lea Michele in the mix, too.
American alternative rock band, Ednaswap, included the
song "Torn" in their debut album (1995).
Natalie Imbruglia unleased her version of "Torn" in 1997.
Even Lea Michele did "Torn" on Glee in Season 4...
Who did it better and why?
BOTB occurs on the 1st and 15th - then check back for results on the 7th and 21st of the month. Let the games begin (of course, I alphabetized it). If I missed a new participant, I'll add you as we go along.
