It's scary how many oldies I know I've heard so very many times, but never bothered to remember the names of the songs *headdesk*

And I'm not sure how you take the original Maneater song and get the Nelly Furtado version O_O The first song has a completely different feel.

ETA: Yay for top 100 lists - but lets see if I can find an 80s online live radio...

Whoa! Maneater was REMADE by Nelly?!?!? I think part of my world just came crashing down around me!!

While I'm not a huge fan of 80's music, I can say a lot of the songs are classic from that era:)
wikipedia says "its subject matter were adapted and re-interpreted" by Nelly. So, very loose connections and definite influence XD

I'm listing to VH-1's online top 100 greatest hits of the 80s and I am creeped out by how many songs and tunes are crazy familiar.
Out of Touch! Goodness, those mullets. And that leopard suit. And the giant drumsticks.

That was a remake? I mean, I've heard her song loads of times but I never connected it to the one by Hall & Oates.
Never realised until I say the video that Ross and Chandler's 80s selves in Friends were modelled after them!

RE: Nelly's Maneater

It's kind of along the same lines as what Kid Rock did to Sweet Home Alabama, isn't it? Both new ones are kind of catchy and definitely more interesting to listen to then if they were just a straight remake, but I'm still more partial to the old classics. ^_^;;

La, I so <3 80's music. It's the best part of the weekends around here. My radio station plays nothing but all weekend long. XD One Night in Bangkok, Thriller, The Warrior...I think it's the cheese. It's just fun to indulge. XD
A friend of mine---Doug Cotler---co-wrote and won a Grammy for "Maneater". Hopefully there's enough sampling in Nelly's version that he'll get some residuals ;)
Ooooh I love burning down the house! Mot really a fan of Tom Jones, but I like this one. ^^
And I don't get why the link for Nelly Furtado's Maneater isn't available in my country. DDD:

I love 80s music, but I'm so bad with titles and artists, but usually when I hear them I recognize them. XD So fun to dance to haha. XD
