Song #88 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “Bizarre Love Triangle”, originally by New Order and covered by Frente. Here’s the original:
That’s kind of an unsatisfying version of the song – there’s something off about the audio, the singer’s level is too low, and it cut off at the end. Here’s a better version, presumably ripped from the production single. I included the first one because it showed the band from the time of recording. Anyway, here’s the Frente cover:
Different in many wyas, not the least of which being the fact that it’s half as long as the original. You get a lot of these stripped-down acoustic indie covers on Coverville, and I often find them kind of dreary, but this one maintained a peppy tempo, which helped a lot. I liked it, anyway. What do you think?
