Tonight’s post is a little random and somewhat overdue. As I was watching the various Christmas commercials/terrible jingles H&M’s Girl’s on Films came on. For the past few months I have been obsessing over that song! I finally told myself that I really needed the 20 second song on my ipod. But then the plot thickens… I learned that it was a remake (I should’ve known).
The original song was recorded by Duran Duran in the 80’s. I usually bash remakes trying to encourage people to support the original artists. But I’m having a really hard time convincing my self which version of Girls on film is better. I like Duran Duran’s version because it they made their own sound. On the other hand, the newer version is just as catchy. It has a sleek sound that could make anyone feel like a supermodel. So I think I’ll leave this one up to you guys. Here are both versions. Hopefully you guys can comment on which you prefer:
Girls on film-Duran Duran
Girls on film- H&M version
