Poison Covers the Romantics
May 5th, 2007 at 1:37am
 
Poison has reunited and is going to release a covers CD that will include their take on "What I Like About You." The recording is reportedly up on Poison's MySpace.com page even as we speak. I can't access MySpace from work, so I can't provide a link, but even as much distaste as I have for Poison, I'd like to hear what they did to the song.

Just listened to it. It's not bad. Rich gives it the thumbs up as well. Nothing like the original, but it rocks out pretty nicely.

I just listened to it too.  I'm indifferent to it.  I definitely like the original a lot more, but Poison's version is no worse (probably better) than all the pop remakes that we've been assaulted (or should that be insulted?) with.  I would've liked it more if they hadn't "embellished" it the way they did.

Not bad.I thought their cover of Sweet's "Little Willy" was pretty cool.

I wasn't as crazy about Poison's harmonica solo.

I have to agree with Boris on this one.  A key part of the magic of the Romantics' version was the way it jumped.   This version just kind of sits there.  

A big "whatev" to Bret and Co.

Yeah, they "poisoned" it all right.  To me it just sounds like any crappy cover version that you hear all summer long at some block party that makes you kinda cringe when you hear it.  By comparison, it does make the original really snap, crackle and pop.

Is it me, or did they change some of the lyrics?

Okay, this version is not what I would call great...
and I agree about the harmonica solo...
Nowhere near the energy of the original.

Poison sings What I Like About You live June 5th. 

Also, has anyone ever heard of Green Dragon?   They did 3 versions of What I Like About You that aired in Australia, I believe, for Channel 10 television.

I like it.  I like the video.  The Poisoned version of the song still doesn't sound that great on its own, but I do like the video.
