Well, never liked it much anyway but by yours and others comments it doesn’t deserve it!
Here's something much worse:
you are right,Mathis is terrible, but it’s better than a Pat Boone version I’m sure.
Thats a Swedish pop group
I am fully aware of who the Cardigans are.
Wow, that's some hardcore research right there....
I agree with your 'differences', but I don't particularly mind the byrds version of Mr Tambourine man, yet I agree that Dylans version is more haunting. As you say, some overlap with opinions, but boy oh boy.... you pretty much nailed it. with Disturbed, Metallica, Bad Wolf AND Tina.
Proud Mary should be left alone. as should sounds of silence. I doubt anyone could ever best the original versions.
No research at all, somebody played those covers when I was listening and they all annoy me.
Disturbed most of all, and there's another thing about it that really bothers me a lot. In the original, "because a vision softly creeping/left its seeds while I was sleeping" it's 11335565/11335565. The arpeggio + 6th creates this feeling of rising tension, a tension that is deliberately left unresolved to enhance the sense of anxiety and isolation the song as a whole is intended to portray.
Disturbed's version, it's 11335565/87653165. It's almost the whole damn major scale. Symbolic of...pretty flowers or gentle rain--and he does it with this arrogant expression on his face. Look how well I can use a major scale in a vocal run, I'm better than everyone else. Whatever the symbolic meaning, it breaks the tension. And that misused scale gets used every verse. That part bugs me, even more than all the macho posturing. Which, let's be real, the macho posturing bugs me a lot. Oh, you're yelling angrily about how everyone is too afraid to say anything. If you disturb the silence (or maybe if you don't) then he'll kick yer ass. With pretty flowers, maybe?
Anyhow, yes. I really really dislike that cover.
