New covers of Amy's "Enchanted" songs on Disneymania

This is not directly related to Amy Adams but I figured it could interest some of you. Disney is releasing a CD called "DisneyMania 6" with new covers of "That's How You Know" and "Ever Ever After". These versions have been remixed & modernized, and they are performed by Disney teenage stars Demi Lovato and Jordan Pruitt. I personally think it's a sacrilege to even try to compare them to Amy Adams, but I may be a little bit biased here. No magic and no identity in those versions. You can listen to 30-second samples below. What do you think?

Is it just me or do they both sound like Miley Cyrus singing??
originals are so much better for these songs and i don't think they could have modernised it since it just kind of came out?

What kind of mickey mouse operation are they running over there at diney these days? This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard they should have left those songs alone

Hi again Steph! I want to congratulate you and to say thanks for this super blog!
Hm… about these songs… They don’t stink but they can’t be compared to the originals… maybe I’m subjective… Amy Adams has a very, very good voice… I don’t think it was the right time to “modernize” the songs from Enchanted… maybe in 20 years from now… :P
Oh and cyn~ is right! They do sound like Miley Cyrus…

"that's how you know" sounds HORRIBLE. I hate when they take lovely disney songs like these and make something too "poppy". Kitschy! "ever ever afteR" sounds ok, since it's kind of pop.

Just quoting cyn~ who said "Is it just me or do they both sound like Miley Cyrus singing??"

GOOOD that totally gave me a fright. I kind of listened to the samples without reading the article and was like "NO MILEY CYRUS DID NOT DO THAT". Thank God it's not her.

That's kinda weird though. The Ever Ever After one is cool but the That's How You Know one, I mean, WTH ??!!!!!!!

Okay sorry if that doesn't make any sense xD Thanks for posting Steph :D

xx

They aren't as different (i.e. remixed) as I expected. Yeah, of course they're not as good, but they're not bad.

However, I will be sticking to the Enchanted CD I have instead of buying this new one.
