Why the gays hate Calum's Dancing On My Own cover?

I've seen a lot of sistren in this site bashing on his cover and I don't get it

Personally I heard his version first and I loved it , then I search the original with that robyn girl and it sounds tragiqué and she dances weird.

 

Calum's version is more personal and his voice is amazing.

 

So?

Just don’t care for it. I prefer Kings of Leon cover over his, but the original is still that bop.

The original is soooooo superior and the vibe was ruined in the cover

The idea that it’s somehow more personal because it has less instrumentation is annoying to me. That’s the gimmick all white boy indie covers use because they can’t achieve those maximalist production highs of the originals

It's such a cliché to take a banger, slow it down and strip it back as a slow piano ballad to make it sound more "emotional" or "personal" but this had the total opposite effect because it took all of the life and soul out of the song.

He took an amazing song and made it whiny :doc:

 

I don't dislike him for it (anymore) though. It's just a really horrid cover I'd rather not exist. Even worse is that it gets more attention than the original :'(

Robyn's version is artful. The cheerful sound amplifies the message. Her delivery is more convincing to me and not a vocal showcase like Calum's
