Lots of cover songs I can think of on YouTube, I read comments like “it’s just a cover,” or people being snappy about how “it’s not the original” or “the original artist doesn’t get enough credit,” blah blah blah.
Let’s take Naked Eyes’ version of “Always Something There to Remind Me” - it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to say that this is the version of that song that comes to everyone’s mind. Even though it is not the original, and is nearly 20 years newer than the original.
Now, let’s take Jimmy Cliff’s version of “I Can See Clearly Now” on the other hand, that’s one I can uNderstand. As long as I recall, that was the only version of the song I knew, until one day when I heard Johnny Nash’s original on an oldies station. And I was like, “This blows Jimmy Cliff away!” There’s an original artist who I truly do believe is underrated and doesn’t get enough credit.14 AnswersRock and Pop3 days ago
Years ago, my uncle's cat was staying with my grandparents and he knocked down one of my grandfather's Kachina dolls with his tail. My grandfather was furious, and yelled "SKIN THAT G-- D--- CAT!" But he seems to be more patient with dogs.
My mom says my great-grandfather (other side) was like that too, and always told cats to get away.1 AnswerCats3 weeks ago

Many people seem to think white is more “desirable” or looks cleaner, but I’d rather have gray because I think it doesn’t make you look as old.6 AnswersPolls & Surveys1 month ago
We can all agree that the majority of us are right-handed, no doubt about that. And I know it's often said that lefties only make up about 10% of the population, but based on the people I know, I really don't think it's THAT low. I'm thinking more along the lines of 15-20%. And BTW I'm not a lefty, but I've always found the "handedness" concept so interesting.5 AnswersOther - Society & Culture1 month ago
Anyone else think it's time for the Republican Party to come to terms with the fact that their vision for the country is behind the times?
I mean, the stances that the GOP has on most issues is more reminiscent of decades ago than the America we live in today. Not to mention, they say "America hasn't been 'great' again until Trump came along." Well guess what?! The "great" America they miss was at a time when the country was not anywhere near revealing its full potential. And I think the Democratic Party on the other hand recognizes the times we're in, and what steps need to be taken in the country to make us even more up to par with the 21st century. The GOP is just the party of backwardness. Sorry, not sorry. I said it just like it is.14 AnswersPolitics1 month ago
Why does it seem to be looked down upon by parents for young drivers to drive a car older than themselves?
I’m 21, and I have a “thing” for old vehicles (mostly older than me). But ever since before I had my learners permit, I was always battling with my parents about buying an old vehicle. And it seems as though most parents insist that their kids drive a vehicle made after they were born. Does it have to do with safety and reliability?
BTW I drive a 1988 Lincoln Town Car. 11 years older than me.4 AnswersOther - Cars & Transportation2 months ago
To tell her “We seem to have a lot in common and you’re really beautiful and sweet.” And then proceed to ask if she feels the same way for me? Or asking if she ever wanted to go out together. I want to say it so bad but I just have the fear of rejection or losing my friendship with her.3 AnswersSingles & Dating2 months ago

Have you ever struggled to tell an elderly parent or other relative that their house is probably too much for them at the current time?
Both of my paternal grandparents are still alive, and they have 2 houses, both of which are 2-story. Both grandparents have trouble going up the stairs now though, so my dad and my 3 uncles have all told them they should sell their main house and move to a single-level house (they say it's easier for them to get upstairs at their weekend house). My grandfather sounds like he'd be open to it, but my grandmother is firmly against it because the house is like her domain. It's where she's had her estate sale business for decades, where her 4 sons were raised, and so many Thanksgivings in the books...my dad says it would probably take the passing of either her or my grandfather to get the surviving one to move. And he's probably right. But if my grandfather is the first to pass, I have a feeling it will be a big battle getting my grandmother to move. And BTW, they got a stair lift recently but my grandfather refuses to use it no matter how bad his knees are.3 AnswersFamily3 months ago
I kind of know her mom better than I know her, so I'm thinking about just being upfront and telling the mom just as it is, and maybe she'd let her daughter know from there? I just am awkward when it comes to letting girls know directly that I like them, so I kind of want to let her mom know first. What do you think?3 AnswersSingles & Dating3 months ago

Anyone else prefer the old-style American automatic gearshifters on the side of the steering wheel than the center consoles today?

Florida, Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona...which way will each of these states vote in November?
My prediction is that Biden wins definitely in MI and PA, and that Trump will still narrowly carry NC, even if it's by a razor-thin margin. I think Arizona is leaning Biden, but FL and WI I would say are pure tossups.2 AnswersPolitics4 months ago
