I rarely like remakes of songs. The original cut of a great song is usually always the one that sticks in my mind, and all others are cheap copies to some extent.
There are some exceptions. I think that Bruce Hornsby’s version of Madman Across the Water trumps Elton John’s version of two decades prior. I like Carrie Underwood’s remake of I Told You So (even though the portions where Randy Travis sing are probably the best parts of the song). And I like Incognito’s take on the old Doobie Brothers song Listen to the Music. The original is still probably the best – but here’s a great Five for Friday version that’ll get you ready for the weekend.
