5.0 out of 5 stars Why Not?!, 28 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Walk This Way (Audio CD)
Yes, yes we can all have a moan that a classic has been ruined, but don't take this too seriously. These girls have not tried to better the original, they've just pumped it up a little. I personally think it's brilliant.

It sounds enough like the original version without being a complete copy - because lets be honest, had the girls tried to sound the same as Aerosmith and Run DMC it's fair to say it wouldn't have worked. Instead they've jazzed it up a little, added some extras and generally put their own stamp on what was already a great song.

It'll definitely get you dancing, and I also feel that it's important that it's a positive, up-tempo kind of re-mix as it is for a serious cause. The last thing everyone wants is a predictable tear-jerking ballad. Conversely, this re-make gives a positive and vibrant feel to the listener which will hopefully encourage lots of support for the charity involved.

I also think another ingredient of success with this song is the fact that both groups don't take themselves too seriously - they know they can't genuinly emulate the rapping of Run DMC, but they give it a go without sounding completely ridiculous. I don't think there are many other pop groups that could have got away with this one, but Girls Aloud and Sugababes are probably the 2 best pop groups in Britain right now.

I for one will definitely be buying this on it's release, primarily because it's for a good cause but also due to the fact that I think it's a fantastic re-mix.

A very fitting idea for a great cause. Well done to Girls Aloud and the Sugababes - very impressive and brilliant fun!
