...weniger...
****
Weitere Dollar für den Jamaikaner. Kein Vergleich zum Original, aber dem guten Carl kann man nie böse sein :-)

# 8 in GB im Juni 1998.
****
Good
***
Kann mit dieser Art von "Gesang" nichts anfangen. Aus Respekt vor dem Song knappe 3*.
*****
Hehe, war im Abspann zu "Shaolin-Kickers"...gefällt mir besser als das Original, muss ich sogar sagen, auch wenn es irgendwie wie die neuen Modern Talking-Songs klingt. Dennoch: gut neu aufgemotzt!
*****
J'aime bien !! Single de 1998.
****
Gar nicht so üble Neuauflage im Ende 90er-Style mit den typischen "Rap-Einlagen". Ähnlich recoverten in dieser Zeit ja auch Modern Talking, Bad Boys Blue und Fancy ihre alten Hits.
****
gute Nummer
***
Das Original ist klasse und ein Disco-Trash-Evergreen! Aber das hier ist nix, halt die übliche Mix-Soße.
***
Tja, die Rapparts versauen's..
**
Pathetic cover of a ordinary song.
****
▒ Grappige en leuke cover van "Kung Fu Fighting" door "Bus Stop & Carl Douglas" uit 1998 !!! Haalde in Nieuw Zeeland zelfs nog de # 1 positie !!! Dik 4 sterren ☺!!!
**
Geef mij toch maar de eerste en originele versie van Carl Douglas uit de jaren 70 ...
***
mässige Neuauflage aus 1998 des 70er Jahre Klassikers - 2.5 (aufgerundet auf 3*)...
******
Excelente.
****
pretty catchy i loved it when i was small
*
As lame as the word gets, if not more.
*****
I loved this and even had the CD Single. And I used to put it on and practice my kung-fu moves in my room. Great track for nostalgia for me, and it still sounds really cool.

This isn't a so good cover for me.

Gefällt mir ziemlich gut - obwohls sehr nach 1 Hit riecht - weils grad so gut auf meine Kungfu-CD passt 5 Points.
****
Mag een 4, ook al noem ik deze een 'zweet dief' maar anderzijds brengt hij Carl Douglas nog eens in de aandacht.
****
Ordentliche Version; sogar die Raps verhunzen den Titel m.E. nicht.
******
Auch in der Neuauflage ganz ordentlich und frisch.
Die Rap-Einlagen passen gut (in jene Zeit des Euro-Houses).
***
3 stars
*****
Sehr schöne Neuauflage! Macht gute Laune!
***
I don't care what version it is they are all overrated to death!!!
****
I was curious if anyone had made a similar comparison as I tend to do with mixed results. Earlier today I remarked to myself that a song on Interpol's first album sounded a lot like "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)", only to find out that such a comparison has seemingly never been made. On the other hand, I typed 'n trance' into YouTube search and this was the very first suggestion, which is hysterical to me. I do have something of a soft spot for this sort of dumb, empty rap that could only have sounded cool in the '90s. I admire the gusto of Carl Douglas to needlessly re-record his own vocals for this, and overall it's quite an exciting listen.

I am however, weary of the rest of Bus Stop's remake heavy discography.
****

Eine Neuauflage des Carl Douglas Hits.
****
Naja geht so, klingt halt genauso wie N-Trance "Da ya think im sexy" machten oder wie schon mehrmals erwähnt die Neuauflagen von Modern Talking usw!

War u.a. auch eine #12 in Irland im Juni 1998!
*
Man nehme einen alten Song, den jeder kennt, mischt einen nervigen Beat drunter und labert dumm herum, und fertig ist der Bockmist.

Und Drogida erzählt mal wieder was, was wirklich niemand wusste. Was täten wir ohne Dich.
