Metallica

As you know DayCee, I'm a huge metalhead :) So, this wasn't too hard of a decision. Everything in the original is just better if that's enough explanation.

Looking at the score... poor Lucie Silvas didn't stand a chance against Metallica with her cover of 'Nothing Else Matters' as it seems! (o.O)
_________________________________________________

15 - Metallica (Original version) - WINNER!!
-VS-
0 - Lucie Silvas (Cover version)
_________________________________________________

I guess the original version is the undisputed winner in this first round... ;)

@ cooldownman : You vote was not counted due to failing to post a reasoning to your vote... thread's rules! ;)

Allright, on with the next battle! I have received several suggestions already (thank you guys!), but I had this one in mind already, so I'll be posting the suggested battles later on, ok? =)

OvC Battle # 2 : Word Up

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7100/7307617366_9114040984_z_d.jpg

This song has actually been covered 3 times by different artists and they each gave their own sound to the original song, even a dance version! =D

- Cameo (Original version - 1986)

- Gun (Cover version - 1994)

- Melanie B (Cover version - 1999)

- KorN (Cover version - 2004)

Time to ring the bell once more for the second round! =D

That guy from Startrek was in the Cameo video. He was the Detective with the megaphone.

I thought Gun had the best version. Melanie B had a horrendously annoying voice, and Cameo had an annoying voice too. Korn was pretty good, but Gun had the most rockish feel to it, and so they get my vote.

It's a close call between gun and korn.

The original wasn't all that bad but it just isn't really my style.
Melanie B just pretty much ruined the song completely.

So i guess my vote is going to go for korn, because even though i like gun's version, i still prefer the vocals brought by korn.

Well lets look at each of them by themselves

Cameo- I liked the tone but like Mav said the voice was annoying. Too digitized for me.

Gun- Too rockish for me. Unlike Mav I didn't really like the rock with that song. It wasn't horrible just not my style.

Melanie B- NOOOO. Just no. Listened to a bit of it and I didn't really like it at all.

KorN- Probably most like the original but without the annoying digital voice. Therefore it was my favorite.

So if you were to lazy to read all that, it really isn't much, I vote of KorN.

I vote of KorN.

And this is what my grammar turns into when I workout right before bed, wake up at 6:30 and then around 9 go work in the yard for 3 hours. Obviously supposed to be "I vote for KorN".

After listening to all 4 versions of this song, I must say I'm completely sick of it.  My vote for this battle will be Cameo, followed closely by Melanie B.  The Gun & Korn versions of this song did literaly nothing to separate themselves from the original, while the Melanie B had a pop sound to it.  However, I'm completely turned off by the nasal sounding "singing" of all 4 of them.

So why Cameo for my vote?  Because it's the original.  Because Gun & Korn did nothing to change it.  Because Melanie didn't do enough to overcome my distaste for today's pop music to vote against an original.

Vote - Cameo.
