Lets go round again

COVER vs ORIGINAL: ‘Let’s Go Round Again’

The song, “Let’s Go Round Again”, was originally recorded by Average White Band in 1980

Perenial favourite for covering, “Let’s Go Round Again”, was co-written by Scottish group, Average White Band and hir Canadian songwriter and producer David Foster and released in early 1980 as the lead single from their eighth studio album, “Shine”. The song peaked at No.12 in the UK and No.53 in America.

Stock Aitken Waterman duo Yell! recorded their version at PWL studios in 1990 as the follow up to their debut single, another cover, “Instant Replay”, which had been a UK top ten hit. Unfortunately, this one failed to make the same impact and only just scrapped into the UK singles chart at No.78.

Former Eternal member Louise (Nurding) next recorded the song for her second studio album, “Woman In Me”, in 1997. It was released as the second single in November and peaked at No.10 in the UK and No.5 in The Netherlands.

But whose version is the best? AVERAGE WHITE BAND’s original, YELL’s cover or LOUISE’s top ten hit?
