REVIEWS
Average points: 3.74 (Reviews: 19)
****
Eine ziemlich verhaltene Nummer von den Tunten-Heavies und nur im Vergleich zum Original von "Shangri-Las" richtig rockend daherkommend.

Das Video ist mal wieder Trash vom feinsten - Prolls, die mit ihren Motorrädern herumheizen und am Straßenrand ihr Geschäft verrichten, haha.
******
Schubiduende Schwermetaller - wie großartig ist das bitte?
***
...wenn man das Original nicht kennen würde, bitte, aber so...geht gar nicht...
**
keinesfalls gelungen - hört sich an wie aus einem zweitklassigen Musical und wird dem Original nie und nimmer gerecht
****
selbst die Amis fanden's amüsant..#53 dort, anno 1985
*****
Schöne Version, spassig!
******
Einfach nur geiles Remake der Mini-Teenager-Oper, aber man muß natürlich das Original kennen :-)
**
billiger Rockersound
**
ik weet nog dat de zanger heel lang haar had en opgemaakt als een vrouw. De zangkwaliteiten laten zeer te wensen over en ik vond het dan ook helemaal niet erg dat dit geen hit werd in fabruari 1986!!
****
▒ Grappige, maar toch ook goede rockversie van het origineel van "The Shangri-Las" (1964) door de Amerikaanse rockformatie "Twisted Sister" uit 1985 !!! Gewaagd en geslaagd in mijn ogen en oren, maar het publiek dacht er toch anders over en liet het plaatje in de schappen liggen ☺!!!
****
Grappige cover.
****
OK
****
So sahen Transen also in den 80ern aus, ahja. Erinnert mich partiell tatsächlich etwas an Queen, kommt aber bei weitem nicht an ihre Klasse heran. Dennoch ganz gefälliger Rock-Song, bei dem mir das Original einmal mehr unbekannt ist.
***
Rock auf Sparflamme – 2.75…

#47 im Januar 1986 in UK…
****
gute 4

CDN: #80, 1985
USA: #53, 1985
***
Hier ein bisschen David Lee Roth, hier etwas aus KISS's Schminktopf, hier ein Oldie ... öde ...
*****
Het enige Twisted Sister singletje dat ik heb, en niet voor niks. Heerlijke cover
***
Mäßiges Cover dieser Teenage Opera der Shangri-Las.
Tut zwar niemanden weh, ist aber auch nicht der große Wurf
***

Schwaches Cover!
