Kate Ryan murdered one of my favourite songs

How the hell did Kate Ryan turn this into this? How do you take a classic song and turn it into a piece of eurotrash and look like a cheap tacky skank in the process? Ugh.

At least I lived in blissful ignorance for over a year.

Re: Kate Ryan murdered one of my favourite songs

I completely agree and this is not the only case unfortunately

I just try to ignore it and switch the channel or radio station

She ruins every single song she tries to sing. It's awful!

Probably because those countries never heard the original are unaware that it's a cover. She's basically making money off of other people's talent. The success isn't thanks to Kate Ryan, but thanks to the song.

Re: Kate Ryan murdered one of my favourite songs

I like Kate Ryan's version more then the old one Anyway the song especially was MASSIVE at highschools etc. The youth really liked the song.
The old song is really boring in my opinion. I think she did well

Not sure about it, in the Czech republic the original is quite famous and I can't imagine it being otherwise in other European countries. In reality that's why imo is this cover version so successful, because most people know the original.
As for me, I don't like covers that much. They are fine for tribute albums or jigs, but have no business in radio or charts. But mainstream pop music industry doesn't work like that.

She should be, for making this abomination! Well, not really, but maybe injured a little bit.

Probably not among teenagers, who appear to be the target group for this song. But they'll grow up and see the real quality. Yes, I'm patronizing.

Re: Kate Ryan murdered one of my favourite songs

No one should try and copy France Gall. She had a cuteness unrivaled
France's version is a great tribute to Ella Fitzgerald while Kate makes it about nothing.
France Gall

Exactly.

Lara Fabian's cover of Evidemment is pretty awful too. That song requires a certain fragility, something France Gall has. Lara Fabian's version is so tacky.
