  • Coverversionen erfolgreicher Songs gibt es wie Sand am Meer, Gelungene Versionen sind da schon eher die Ausnahme.
    Zu Letzteren zählt „For You“ des Hamburger DJ-Teams „The Disco Boys“, die sich nah am Original hält, dennoch erfrischend war.
    Auch wenn der Song in den österreichischen Charts nur mäßig erfolgreich war, so lief er in den Radionstationen zurecht in Dauerschleife

    Princess cards she sends me with her regards
    Oh, bar-room eyes shine vacancy
    To see her you gotta look hard
    Wounded deep in battle, I stand stuffed like some soldier undaunted

    To her cheshire smile I’ll stand on file
    She’s all I ever wanted
    You let your blue walls stand in the way of these facts, honey
    Get your carpet baggers off my back
    Girl give me time to cover my tracks

    You said, „Here’s your mirror and your ball and jacks“
    But they’re not what I came for
    Oh I came for so much more
    And I know you that too

    And I know you know that’s true
    I came for you
    I came for you
    I came for you
    For you
    I came for you

    Crawl into my ambulance
    Your pulse is getting weak
    Reveal yourself all to me now
    While you’ve got the strength to speak

    ‚Cause they’re waiting for you at Bellevue
    With their oxygen masks
    But I could give it all to you now
    If only you could ask

    Don’t call for your surgeon
    Even he says it’s late
    It’s not your lungs this time
    But your heart holds your fate

    Don’t give me my money back
    Don’t want it anymore
    It’s not that nursery mouth I came back for
    It’s not the way you’re stretched out on the floor

    I’ve broken all your windows
    And I’ve rammed through all your doors
    Who am I to ask you to fight my wars
    And you should know that’s true

    You should know that too
    I came for you
    I came for you
    I came for you
    For you
    I came for you

    Don’t call for your surgeon
    Even he says it’s late
    It’s not your lungs this time
    But your heart holds your fate

    Don’t give me my money back
    Don’t want it anymore
    It’s not that nursery mouth I came back for
    It’s not the way you’re stretched out on the floor

    I’ve broken all your windows
    And I’ve rammed through all your doors
    Who am I to ask you to fight my wars
    You should know that’s true

    You should know that too
    I came for you
    I came for you
    I came for you
    For you
    I came for you
