I'm really curious whether this cover version is as bad as the Scissor
Sisters' "Comfortably numb" (the classic Pink Floyd number)... The first
time I saw the video I didn't recognise the song until I saw its title.
I've heard it on the radio a few times since, and does that version
sound like the Bee Gees or what! But of course much worse...

i'll give you a quick translation of the second review since the first
one isn't too funny and the author claims that novascape had some good
songs in the past. listening to their latest "hit", i doubt that.
"those 'products' show the whole dilemma of the music business in 2004:
take an old 80s hit, mix it with some boring standard beats from the
'sampling can', mediocre singing(?), and a nice-to-look-at dancing chick
for a medium chart success - done, earned another thousand euros!
that's just enough to get the money of some 15-year-olds. but you people
at the record labels don't really wonder, 'why' you are selling less
considering this crappy piece of music, i have to agree with another
reviewer: you don't even understand when songs with a statement are
raped. that's not just boring, it is also completely tasteless. poor
