I used to think that people should never attempt to do remakes of classic songs. Most of the time they can go horribly wrong; you only have to look at G4's Bohemian Raphsody to realise that. Having said that, Robbie Williams' Lola cover stayed true to the original Kinks track, both of which I love. There are a few cases in which the cover is better than the original, I certainly found this with Take That's How Deep is Your Love. But in my opinion this cover is just as good as the Guns n' Roses original.
I first heard this cover, as I am sure most people did, on the John Lewis advert. I sat there listening to it, rewound and listened again, taking the melody in. I thought about Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland which is soon set to hit the big screen. Because they are both reimaginings of timeless classics. Taken By Trees have taken a song that everybody knows and breathed new life into it. I still love the original, but this cover is perfect for relaxing to after a long hard day, wonderful music and beautiful lyrics. It's just like the original but completely different.
