Pathetic cover of a ordinary song.
****
pretty catchy i loved it when i was small

As lame as the word gets, if not more.

I loved this and even had the CD Single. And I used to put it on and practice my kung-fu moves in my room. Great track for nostalgia for me, and it still sounds really cool.

I don't care what version it is they are all overrated to death!!!

I was curious if anyone had made a similar comparison as I tend to do with mixed results. Earlier today I remarked to myself that a song on Interpol's first album sounded a lot like "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)", only to find out that such a comparison has seemingly never been made. On the other hand, I typed 'n trance' into YouTube search and this was the very first suggestion, which is hysterical to me. I do have something of a soft spot for this sort of dumb, empty rap that could only have sounded cool in the '90s. I admire the gusto of Carl Douglas to needlessly re-record his own vocals for this, and overall it's quite an exciting listen.

I am however, weary of the rest of Bus Stop's remake heavy discography.
