Cover Song Saturday – Lucky Uke: Love Bites

ORIGINAL 

COVER

I’m a big time Def Leppard fan, and I have been since “Pyromania.” So it should come as no shock that I am going with the original on this one. It is such a great Power Ballad that it can be argued it was one of the best to come out of the Eighties. You can decide for yourself on that one, but it is a great song no matter what labels you put on it.

With all that said, the cover of this song is truly amazing to listen to. Peppy and upbeat, sounding like something straight out of Hawaii. It is very catchy and very good, but it doesn’t have the edge of the original version. This song was meant to be a Power Ballad and it should always stay that way.

So, original or remake? Are you a big Def Leppard fan?

Haiku – Moonlight Dance

The woods were silent

She chose to run into them

Killer on her heels

I always thought this would be a great song for a chase scene in a movie where the monster of that story is after someone. I can see the chase starting as the music begins and then as the music builds the chase intensifies.
