    What's even sadder than her ruining a great Stones song, is now she has her own Playstation II game. :( :rolleyes:
  7. I am tempted to say ROCK ON! But I'd hate to hear Christina try and sound like Joey. Shakira would be better. Maybe Christina should sing the entire catalogue of Los Crudos, now I would pay money to see THAT! (not much money though)

    And the Spice Girls (remember them?) had a playstation game too, my sister got it. It was pretty crappy, I'd say about half an hour of playing the game before you beat it. And the most fun is during the character selection.

    Ive never been able to get a guitarist to turn down!

    I wonder how she managed to do that?;)

    Okay! Time to get my mind out of the gutter!

    Overheard some friends sayin' this about Brittney doing "I Love Rock 'N Roll"-

    When asked why she did that tune, Brittney said-
    'I like Pat Benatar'(or sumthin like that).

    Which reminds me of when Faith Hill covered "Piece Of My Heart". She was asked how she thought her version compared to the original by Janis Joplin...Faith said she had never heard the original(or sumthin like that).

    Ignorance is bliss.

    I reckon equating Joan Jett with the Ramones is just as bad as equating Brittany Spears with Joan Jett.

    Britney sang "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" for her movie Crossroads. It was during the karaoke scene, which ended with Britney and her two friends flashing their boobs at the crowd. That footage was cut from the movie. :(

    I think it's cute when my two young daughters argue with me about who actually did "Rock 'n' Roll" first -- Brit or Joan (I know The Arrows did it first, but Joan made it famous).

    FYI, Britney covered "Satisfaction" on her last release, but Samantha Fox beat her to the punch and covered it way back in the day! Where is my Sam Fox cassette?
  14. Shakira and Christine Aguilera look very similar. I don't think they've ever been seen together.

    Do you think it's possible that...? :confused:

    The first time I stumbled upon a Shakira video, I thought, "Wow, has Christina Aguilera grown up quick"!

    Upon further review-
    Shakira is more 'mature'(in a good way)...plus she can Rock & knows something about Rock/Pop history.
    She's got some balls, too.
    (That's a compliment). ;)
  16. I know Zulu... I know...

    It's just that songs I love are getting butchered by kids who don't know about what songs they're covering (or re-covering as in "I Love Rock'N'Roll") I mean, Pat Benatar did "I Love Rock´N'Roll"???? Britney... let me school ya on 80s tunes, OK???

    I do like "Kids In America" by Kim Wilde. While a pop song, it had energy plus a piercing though simple bassline. Now some little girls called No Secrets come up with this deficient version. Aaaaarrghh!!!

    Don't be surprised if other classics get destroyed by money-hungry record execs looking for the big dinero...

    ...and Ramones' songs are not exempt from the carnage...

    she also plays guitar, and i believe was somewhat of a "serious artist" in colombia a few years before becoming a pop fluff teen queen in the US

    Charo also played guitar(& was a pretty decent player) until she became, well, you know... ;)
  19. Actually, she is STILL a very good guitarist. I am a big fan of Charo (the guitarist) and have a few of her CD's in my arsenal.

    I actually like Shakira. She has a great voice and is a good guitar player. Plus she likes Led Zepplin ;)
