The fact others have covered the songs doesn't mean the original no longer exists. If you prefer it, it's still there.
I do prefer it.
It is impossible to improve on perfection.

Nilsson, Without You.
An all time classic cover
Go listen to badfinger's original.
And Mariah Carey's howling cover of a cover...

I'm reminded of the time Clarkson hosted Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and some knob from Blue was on the panel.
"We did a version of that"
"No you didn't - you fcuked it up"
 
May I add

Anthrax - it's late (Queen)
Bruce Dickinson - Jerusalem
Dave Phillips & the hotrod gang - tainted love (Gloria Jones)
Show of Hands - First we take manhatten (Leonard cohen)
- boys of summer (Don Henley)
- youngstown (Bruce Springsteen)
 
Lawnmower Death - Kids in America (Kim Wilde)
Extreme Noise Terror - 3AM Eternal (KLF)

War Hero
NOT The Carpenters


It’s definitely not the carpenters!

Sounds like every other Japanese girl cover band I have heard. The words may change in the cover but the thrashing of what was originally melodious is identical.

The only thing in its favour is they are easy on the eye

I like the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra.
Sesame street.
