Remake the Genre!

I’ve listened to The Smiths probably the same amount as everyone else has; enough to like them to the point where I don’t have to listen to them all that much.  (It gets to a point where you have to say, enough Morrissey.)  In searching for cover songs I came across Bobby Bare Jr.’s cover for “What Difference Does It Make?”.  It’s a country cover which is really interesting that I like it since I don’t like most modern country songs.  However, in listening to both songs, I still like The Smiths original song a little better.  I think I like it better because its sounds a little smoother; the lyrics fit the genre better.  The cover is still excellent and I will listen to Bobby Bare Jr. again.
