You can like it, anybody can like it, cover versions are good for having a spin. I prefer Raspberries' version.

I can appreciate the instrumentation of this particular arrangement, and the voices are basically clear and don't sound off-key. The enthusiasm of the arrangement and musicianship is undeniable.

The feel of this one, though, is quite different from the original, as is the feeling and emotional input of Eric Carmen singing compared to the lead singer in this group---the lead seems a little lacking in expressing emotion in lyric deliverance. I think they have changed the lyrics in a few places as well (?), which I don't believe was needed.

Nice find compared to some other covers we've had posted before.

However --- I, too, prefer the original. ;)

Eric Carmen is making money from the royalties in his sleep, we hope. :D 

If he isn't I have a long list of lawyers who can cross the border.

"The Killers" version? Heck no.:zzz:
