    Honestly, if the song sounds great. I will listen to it. It’s that simple. I loved the original, and I love the remake. I don’t care that is is not original, if it makes me feel good.

    In 1983, the video game industry crashed, and the main reason behind it was the lack of consumer confidence. Too many games were being produced with not much quality, and buyers were becoming less and less trustful of the quality of games from some top producers. 

    Right now, the idol market is at the point. Over fifty idols debuted in 2011, and half of that debuted in the first quarter of 2012. SM is still a business at the end of the day, and they need to keep that customer confidence going if they want to continue to sell. Their recent release ‘I Got a Boy’ proves how their composers are dwindling in success, that they need to keep some kind of quality to keep their consumers. Using a remake allows success by using something that’s been known to succeed, music wise.

    I did prefer the softer vocals on SM’s version of Spectrum tbh. Hated Dancing Queen though. Also, if I find out that SHINee’s Obsession is a remake, I may punch something.

    I love Spectrum by Zedd and Matthew Koma.  Matthew Koma’s voice makes the original version sound very unique.  SM really needs to stop with remaking songs.  I don’t care if SM is buying the rights, I’ve been tired and annoyed for 3 years now.  They need to be original because if they keep this up, many people are not going to take SM and SM idols seriously.  I felt Spectrum was watered down by the performance to be honest.

    I don’t know if you guys realise. When you buy a SM’s cd, where the lyrics are written , right under when you see ”Original Title” that’s meen the song as been bought.

    I realise that only 1-3 wasn’t ”stealed” per cd (Ex: Mr.Simple, THE BOYS) but i don’t know if it apply to every SM’s CDs

    I felt that way when I realized that one of my favorite Super Junior songs-”Monster” was a remake/remix version or a mashup of two songs. I listened to the original songs-”You’re Not Alone” and “Just Like That”-I’m too lazy and cold right now to look up the artists…however I still like SJ’s renedition.

    Although the song is a cover, I feel the vocal is smoother in SM version. Well, I’m easily pleased so I don’t really care.

    ah i found a person that felt exactly the same with me.i’m a fan of Super Junior,but i felt disappointed when founding some ‘copycat’ song in their albums.when i try to take a look at snsd,f(x), and shinee,ah it was the same.what makes me more disappointed is that they copied,or remake (which i don’t know exactly),to the song i really like.like f(x) hot summer –> justin timberlake-sexy back or super junior – so i (on first album) –> westlife – my love.spectrum is fatal mistake,they didn’t even try to make it different
