So....is the Original or the Remake Better?

I am sure there are several remakes we don't even KNOW are remakes.....which do YOU like better?

Personally I like Soundgarden's Black Hole Sun far better than Peter Frampton's.......

On the other hand....the original here is better, IMO.....omg was he not the cutest (I think this may have been before I was born, but so what )




contrasted with Big Mountain's version.....which is pretty damn good though.

My son Josh would like to tell you about Dobie Gray and Uncle Kracker singing Drift Away. Dobie Gray did the original and Uncle Kracker did the remake. I will find them on you tube just give me a few! Computers running slow tonight!

And Uncle Kracker

Here is a tough one.... both versions are amazing.. and it is kind of a reverse remake in a sense, Nine Inch Nails/Trent Reznor did this song about heroin addiction first, Hurt, then Johnny Cash did it later in his life.




I like the Cash version best.
