Oldies But Goodies! Tracklist:
Bait and switch in the classic sense. This is offered to the masses that might not identify the true and original artists, and after being disappointed by the purchase....then it’s too late and they have done their job of getting ones hard earned money. There are many, many Original golden oldies albums being offered to settle for this nonsense....Be aware...,
There are only a couple of good songs, the rest are yelling and screening of hard rock style, not the oldies feeling that was of the original songs. Sample them first before buying. I always sample, but not this time. BIG REGRET.
I can understand how some people would give it 1 star if you are on the hunt for some swell Motown or Dick Clark era rock n roll. But this is a punk record, released on a punk label, of punk bands covering oldies tunes. So maybe just admit you didn't research the album before purchasing it, instead of complaining how these bands ruined the songs. Many pop artists today have ruined what I consider classics, but I'm not going to go trash their record without understanding what it is or what they were trying to do. So if you are into 90's era punks bands having fun with some great songs from the mid century, this album is for you.
I just don't know what to say... Apple shouldn't let people get taken like this. When I want Oldies I want oldies they know what I mean. I can't believed they would even let this garbage into the Oldies search engine!!!!!! Step up your game guys!! Just wasted 10 dollars!!!
Quit your complaining! This is a compilation album. Listen to the samples before you buy it. Duh! I love oldies as much as anybody- They remind me of riding in the back seat of my parents car back in the good ol' days. ...but I bleed punk rock. These are some great underrated bands doing their own take on songs that obviously had some sort of influence.
YECK Worst compilation of oldies I Have ever heard. Should not be in the oldies section. I am sorry I ever purchased the album.Should be reimbursed.Buyer beware.Read the reviews.rate as 0 not 1
someone took amazing oldie songs and basically destroyed them. dont try to cover a song that is already perfect as is. that also goes for artists who try to do Beatle covers....just leave them alone you cant do a Beatle song better than the Beatles.
NEGATIVE PROGRESSION RECORDS, the shoes sure fits! Don't even bother presenting remakes, etc, all you're doing is INSULTING MY INTELLIGENCE! If this is all you can put together, then GET OUT OF THE RECORD BUSINESS! I-tunes should let us rate 0 and negative numbers for some of the Garbage!
the singing is especially fail. (LOOK FOR THE ORIGINALS!) and by the way: all of these bands are POP punk —which already sucks— so don't say "if you don't like punk rock: don't buy it." (it gives legit punk a bad name).
Out of the entire CD I could only handle listening to 3 of the songs. The rest I deleted off my library b/c they were so ear piercingly terrible I didn't want to risk being subjected to them again. A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!!! They have butchered some great old tunes and made an attempt to convert them to heavy metal. So not okay! Save your money and your sanity DON'T BUY THIS!!
So very disappointed in this purchase. I thought it would sound like the "Oldies", but this is a bunch of JUNK. Wish I could have heard a sample before I bought, now I don't even want to download the rest of them. What a waste! I won't make this mistake again!
How could people turn such good music into filth. The hits like Bee-Bop-A-Lula, Runaround Sue, and Blue Moon are turned into disasterous music.Oldies But Goodies ( turned into complete crap ) should be the title for this cd. It kind of makes me cry that people would do that to pure music. You people make me sick :-(!
These are actually good songs, especially "Blue Moon', "Mr. Sandman", and "Johnny B. Goode". Don't rate this CD badly simply because you liked the originals better, these are still good covers.
Okay... I understand that you might really really hate this cuz it might "ruin" the song for you. But come on people... did you even listen to leader of the pack?! I litterally burst out laughing. It's all in good fun! I'm not sure if I would BUY these songs but I think its hilarious and a great laugh!
Ok, obviously, if you don't like the punk/rock/indie style music, you aren't going to like this CD. The originals were good, so are these! They're purely different which is fine by me! These are some great artists, just having fun with some classics. Take it lightly, and enjoy the sillyness of it all!
Great album for all the cover song fans out there. Big fan of the 1950's genre, but I also like more recent indie/alternative bands, so this is right on the mark. My top pick for songs inculde songs #1, 3, and 4. Definatly worth the 10 bucks.
