Subject: Bouncing Souls or Simple Minds...?

Written By: taraco on 09/06/02 at 08:15 a.m.

 So many MP3s are mislabeled or flat-out wrong that peer-to-peer sharing can be risky business.

  Examples: The cover of C'Mon Eileen by 'No Doubt' offered at Gnutella is actually by Save Ferris; the Deftones don't do the jazzy ska version of Hungry Like the Wolf -- it's actually by Reel Big Fish; Bruce Springsteen doesn't sing Come Together with Bon Jovi -- it's with Axl Rose!

  Anyhow, my question: There's a version of Don't You Forget About Me credited to Bouncing Souls.  There's a couple of reviews here which confirm the version.  But the download sounds amazingly like the original by Simple Minds.

 Is the Souls version really that dead-on?  I've downloaded both and hear only subtle differences at best.

  Any help appreciated!
