George Michael's version of "Papa was a Rolling Stone" and MJ's version of Come Together, if you compare it to the original, the Beatles version sounds like a demo tape.

Michael's version is good and kind of funky but in no way is better than the original, it sounds watered down.

You could mean GM or Michael Jackson? Who do you mean?

Personally, I like the En Vogue version the most

Sinead O'Connor: Nothing Compares 2 U. If it wasn't for her, this song would have been forgotten and Prince would never have included it in his live set.

Guys, I'm getting confused. Are we on the "remakes you like better" or "worse remakes" thread? I can't tell the difference anymore... confuse

Since you trashed Milli Vanilli in another thread. I guess you're talking about me. razz I like their version, but I do not like the original by Numarx. Like I don't like the version of Point Of No Return by the original lineup of Exposé, but I like the re-recording by the more well known lineup.
