Original vs. Cover: I Have Not Been To Oxford Town

The werewolf has been on serious a serious David Bowie kick the past few months. Still, this competition between the Zoe Poledouris (daughter of Basil Poledouris, who composed the life-changing and epic scores from Conan: The Barbarian and The Hunt For Red October) vs. David Bowie is closer than it should be. In fact, the jury is hung on this end. Bowie classifies as Baron of the Bad-ass in the current rock n' roll pantheon. However, Zoe's voice is soothing, sultry and sexy. They are very close in rhythm and style, which confuses things a tad and hurts Zoe's cause. Also, it should be noted that Zoe's version was featured in the heinous cinematic translation of Starship Troopers, the classic Robert Heinlein novel.
