most improved song (read: best remake)

which remake do you think is the best? for me it would be the corrs' version of fleetwood mac's "dreams". other remakes just sounded the same as the original, like westlife's "uptown girl". so what do you think? ?

    i liked the remake of Til My Heart-Aches End, by Passage, originally by Ella May Saison (i think... :confused::D)

    i heard that someone remade IAxe's Ako'y Sa Iyo, Ika'y Akin, i'll have to listen to it to see (er... hear) for myself, `cause i really liked the original.

    Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang the Freestyle version is also cool...

    I love the original "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen...
    Talagang kadiri yung R&B version na ginawa sa song na yon. Hindi binigyan ng justice yung song! Hindi na nila ginalang si Freddie Mercury. Kung ako si Freddie, mumultuhin ko yung R&B group na yan!
  • masagwa din yung remake ng "We Will Rock You" ng 5ive and now Robbie Williams did a cover version na rin. :bigvomit:

    not to mention "Another One Bites the Dust" used by the PBA and replaced with the lyrics "PBA Bayan ng Superstars"...at least now, they're using J.Lo's "Let's Get Loud" with the same lyrics pa rin.:glee:
