TATU cover song, who did it originally?
 
I heard this on the radio, I know they said it was tatu and I think the song name was How Soon Is Now. thought it was pretty good but I'm positive it's a cover, possibly a song from the late 80's very early 90's?

Isn't it the Smith's

Pretty good cover, too. Suits them well.

haven't heard their version, but I love the Smiths.

probably better than the buttrock version found on that witch movie soundtrack!

What I find so funny is that all these movies and TV shows about witches and stuff like to use that song because of the beginning of it, if you were just hearing it, it sounds like, "I am the sun, and the air...", but of course it's, "I am the son, and the heir...". Always makes me laugh.

LOL...no need to run on that score. The first time I heard the song, which was actually on said movies and TV shows about witches, I of course figured that it was 'sun' and 'air.' But when I sought out the full song and listened to it I noticed that the lyrics <i>right</i> after "I am the son, and the heir..." are, "...of a shyness that is criminally vulgar." Once I heard that, it made sense.

What's even funnier, is that on Charmed, they purposefully edit out the second part of said lyrics that reveal it isn't 'sun' and 'air.' Silly TV people. ;)

Song's also got to be one of the most covered, in general...

(Fake edit: that was hyperbole.)

Snake River Conspiracy did a decent cover a couple of years ago.

This song deserves more than to be used for witch movies and shows. It's one of the best rock songs of all time.

And Hybrid did a remix of this cover. Now it's getting complicated. Can you do covers of other people's covers. 8)
