    These things are so subjective, and yet you are wrong :)

    I just bought this for my boys: video games are a pain in my ample back side, but I thought it might stretch them: Game Music by Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà

    Then my small group minister from church turned me onto this http://itun.es/us/34Vnt Enter Sandman is very cool

    The Star Spangled Banner. Just sing the song, nobody wants to hear your cute little take on it.

    Everything Kris Kristofferson wrote. He sang them all better than the people he wrote them for...Bobby McGee, Sunday Morning Coming Down, Help Me Make It Through the Night, to name a few.

    Any song made by Queen. And I agree about The Lady in Red.

    I could not agree more. Everyone should leave everything KK wrote alone, including KK :rofl:

    They play that version a lot on the GRRN Bar stool discussion podcast. It's pretty good.

    I dunno man....

    It was well done, but *I* personally have trouble with the effort to contemporize the National Anthem. Whether it's some R&B warble-fest or a metal rendition...it's just wrong.

    Still, that sounded well done, even if it's not my thing.
    I guess that's just it, though, it's the National Anthem....and not any 'one' person's.:dunno:

    Oh, I know how you feel; I have always been like, "leave it alone, and don't try to to do anything to it" , and when somebody sent me that video, I rolled my eyes and thought "Oh great, somebody else trying to mess with the song, it's gonna be awful, and I will be annoyed by the end".....

    But I watched it, and I was really impressed....I still like the straight, traditional performance of the song, but I can't help but like this version.:cool:
