Thread Name: Really BAD Covers
Subject: RE: Really BAD Covers
I used to say terrible things about Trini Lopez, but I've mellowed a bit in my old age. He give me a certain nostalgic comfort, but I still wonder why had had to have those dishes clanging and rattling in the background.

Alex included the Donna Summers cover of "MacArthur Park" on his list of bad covers, but I have to say I think the Richard Harris original of "MacArthur Park" is just as bad. The park itself, is quite nice, as urban parks go. It's a nice transition from Wilshire Boulevard to downtown Los Angeles.
