Yuck!

I was waiting so long for Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs' new covers CD to come out, and all I can say is Yuck! They have ruined my favorite song of all time, "Alone Again Or" by Love. Oh, Matthew, couldn't you have stuck with the Pixies covers?

Other bad versions of Alone Again Or:

Calexico
Oblivians
Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs
UFO

The UFO one is okay, pretty close to the original Mariachi music. Do yourself a favor, stick with The Damned. You can't go wrong with that cover.

I'll agree. Something so sacred and relatively undiscovered is brought to the public eye in such and uninspired pedestrian manner. At least when my band in Portland ruined that song we covered the Damned's version so as to not even attempt to hone in on the gentle melodius meloncholy of the orginal. Brian McClean is rolling in his grave! All of the Mathew Sweets and Jack Johnson's of the world should have stuck to surfing or banking!
