    Question 311's Cover of Cure's "Lovesong"

    Has anyone else heard this cover yet? It's on the soundtrack of 50 First Dates, and has gotten some air play on our alternative station. I thought it was really good. It sounds more acoustic, and I actually thought it was the Cure singing it, until they said it was 311.

    So what does everyone else think about it? Do you like it?

    I sure like 311 when they play reggae style! If you're with me, give a listen to the songs Amber, Life's Not A Race or Strong All Along...

    Btw, the vocals in Lovesong sound kinda like Coldplay, don't you think?

    Wow, I didn't know the whole soundtrack was covers of 80's songs. It looks interesting, I might have to find a way to listen to it.

    I was just real surprised at how 311 sounded so much like the Cure even though it seemed more acoustic.

    I like 311, I even liked this soundtrack but I have to say this cover of The Cure's Lovesong is a big disappointment.I just think theres no comparision when you hold it up to the original. They really didnt do anything to make their own more so than say a generic version of the song.

    Just IMO..

    I'd rather not. Anything that girl's vocals touch turns to irritating noise

    "Slave To Love" is a Bryan Ferry solo song, btw

    I have two questions about that movie.

    Who sang the original version of "Amber"? 311 keeps popping up everytime i try to find out.

    What is the song that is played when she reflects light from her knife onto his face? I remember it starts with "Blinded" and that's all i remember.
