Shirley Bassey with none of the kitschy appeal.
My teenage years, start to finish, bookended by one horribly embarrassing video. Thanks, poeTV. Thanks a whole fucking lot.
This and the Final Countdown have been covered enough to make me forget about the original versions. Five for pure stupid evil.
Haha, I love when people who can't speak English cover popular English songs and completely butcher it.
It's like a really boring, safe version of Nico covering The End.

Tori Amos pulled this off, in my opinion, in 1992 and the fact that she did it while Kurt Cobain was still alive somehow makes it seem like less of a bullshit gimmick.
Pop has indeed eaten itself.

This sounds about as good as the original.
The original is one of the worst songs on the worst Nirvana album, that's a big part of why it was such a success - it's not challenging. Hell, he originally wrote it a s a joke, trying to come up with the dumbest guitar riff he could..
Hey, I'm too old to even know this song!
I'd still trade this any day for Bob Seger's "Her Strut", though.
