I’ve been tinkering around about this in my head for a bit. A weekly post all about cover songs. I am sort of into that kind of thing. I love to hear a song I’ve heard a thousand times changed and transformed into something new or different. Case in point, this song. Disturbed really shows the darkness hidden inside this song that I think the original never managed to capture. “Silence like a cancer grows” is such a bleak sounding line, and Disturbed’s version of this song really highlights it. Here are the two songs. Compare and enjoy. If this is a hit I would like to start doing it once a week.
Incredible lyrics. Now, the new version.
So, which is your favorite?
I have to say that this new one just gives it a darker punch that really draws out those lyrics. I’m leaning towards the new one now, but I have and will always love the original.
