REVIEWS
Average points: 3.91 (Reviews: 35)
*****
Hat was spezielles an sich!
****
...gut, aber der Rhythmus stimmt nicht ganz ...
**
Ziemlich gruselige Plastik-Version des Bernstein/Sondheim-Musical-Klassikers, der zB von jemand wie Barbra Streisand viel besser interpretiert wurde. Der erste und bislang schlimmste Cover-Missgriff der Jungs...

D 70, UK 9
******
Und wieder mal eine Coverversion der Pet Shop Boys, und auch dieser Versuch ist voll geglückt! Der [Extended Mix] ist vielleicht etwas lang geraten, insbesondere das Intro. Auf die Qualität hat dies freilich keinen Einfluss.

Kann schon mit dem Musical-Original nicht viel anfangen. Immerhin haben die Boys mit ihrer Interpretation Mut bewiesen.
***
na ja, geht so
******
Besonderer Titel...halt herrausragend...danke PSB
**
Völlig mißglücktes und vor allem unnötiges Cover. #9 in GB und #70 in D.
**
Schlecht, langweilig.
***
In der Disco sicher ok, daheim hört man erst wie grauslig hier gecovert wurde.
*****
wie oben bereits gesagt, ein geglücktes cover!
******
Wunderschön, zum ersten das Original, und auch diese sehr flotte Cover-Version ist gut gelungen. Aufgerundet zu 6*. Ohrwurm-Melodie.
**
weniger, nicht mal mittelmässig..
***
Ziemlich dreist und lieblos gecovert.
******
▒ Een echte "Pet Shop Boys" plaat uit half juni 1997 !!! En voor mij een zeer lekkere !!! Jammer dat de plaat het niet deed in de hitlijsten ??? Ook ik ga voor de 6 sterren ☺!!!
***
sehr mäßig......ziemlich schwach u. so holprig produziert....
*****
Muy buena.
*****
In 1997 verscheen een special edition van de cd "Bilingual" (uit 1996). Hierop stond een nieuwe versie van het beroemde nummer "Somewhere". Deze werd alsnog als 5e single uitgebracht. Deze werd wel getipt in de Tipparade van de top 40, maar kreeg helemaal geen notering in de Single Top 100. Jammer, want de melodie is aanstekelijk en het nummer vrolijkt je gewoon op!!!
*****
sehr gut.
***
Sehr eintönig.
****
Peaked at #56 in Australia, 1997.
*****
One of my favourite Pet Shop Boys song. A great big campy dance version of a classic Broadway number. Brilliant!!!
***
kein Glanzlicht aus dem Schaffen der PSB – 2.75...
****
Ganz in Ordnung, die legendären Herren aus England haben jedoch auch schon bessere Lieder gebracht als dieses hier, mit dem sie 1997 erfolgreich gewesen sind. Vier Sterne hält der Franzel für dienlich.
****
... flottes Teil ...
****
Naja, knappe Vier.

CDN: -
USA: #125, 1997
**
Ich mag das Original wirklich gerne, aber diese Version hat der Song nicht verdient.
****
Nicht schlecht, aber Pet Shop Boys hatten deutlich bessere Nummern.
*****
Ich mag auch diese Single der Band. Prima.
****
gut
****
prima nummer
****
Plezant werk van Pet Shop Boys.
****

Gutes Cover.
****
Ich kann jetzt keine Vergleiche ziehen mit dem Originalen oder all den Cover Versionen weil ich die Nummer nur von den PSB kenne, und ich fande den Song immer ganz ok, war aber nie ein Favorit von mir - da könnte ich jetzt bestimmt an die 30 Songs von denen aufzählen die mir besser gefallen!
***
nicht meins
