that sp has either amazing ideas or an amazing marketing team behind them because honestly, look at what summer paradise ft sean paul is doing in the sp community and beyond that.
it was the CHEAPEST way to get word back out that Simple Plan is still here plus it got people talking about the song on tumblr and twitter which causes MASSIVE reach because everyone has ppl that arent sp fans that follow them so the majority is gonna wanna know what the commotion is about.
The colab with sean paul pretty much garantees to get a song by simple plan played in clubs, which reaches an entire new audience. So basically it’s a win win situation.
And dont give me crap it’s about the music because honestly it isnt. simple plan is a business like every other business and their job is to sell music so any way to reach more people is a good way.
simple plan spent a lot of time and effort in recording summer paradise with sean paul and if people are just going to bash over it, then you people just might as well keep your nasty comments to yourself. IM NOT SAYING THAT YOU ALL SHOULD LOVE THE NEW VERSION, IM JUST SAYING THAT WE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM WHATEVER DECISIONS THEY MAKE. GET IT NOW? GEEZ :))))
LMAO seriously a lot of time? first of all the lyrics were already written. So it took them about half a day to rerecord it. Maybe the approaching sean paul and listening to the proposed track and all that jazz together took them about a week or so. Which isnt an entire week they worked at it so it’s not that of a big deal as you are making it out to be. I’m not saying they arent hard workers, it’s not as if they wrote an entire new song and recorded everything seperately like guitar lines, bass and drums and then vocals, listening to the rough cut, changing what needs to be changed and then waiting til it’s mastered and approved by the label.
About opinions, everyone has the RIGHT to express their opinion in a mature manner. The part that our opinions differ is what makes us unique and nobody’s opinion should be shut down or bashed. You may discuss things but in the end you respect each others opinion.
And there’s a HUGE difference, like 2 worlds apart difference, between supporting them all the way and HAVING to love EVERYTHING they do and worshipping the ground they walk on just because they happen to be Simple Plan.
I dont like the version as much as i like the one with k’naan. And that is my god given natural born right to not like it. Does that mean i don’t love them unconditionally? Does that mean i’m going to stop going to their gigs? stop following them on twitter? NO it does NOT mean that.
Just because you don’t like one thing about them, doesnt make you less of a fan than those who do love everything because to be honest, you cannot love everything about a person or a band. those who say they do, are just afraid to say the things they don’t like because theyre scared people are gonna jump them and attack them for having an opinion that differs from them
I still prefer version 1 with k’naan over the sean paul version but that might be because i am biased at the moment and have had the priviledge to listen to summer paradise CD version for eons over this version nonetheless. I like the song, It gives me the same feeling as the one with k’naan just a lil more different i guess. The one with k’naan actually reminds me of the gigs of them ive been to, the feeling i get and when i hear that song it’s like my anthem of “touring’” like the verse “but some day i will find my way back to where your name is written in the sand” to me that’s code to name written on the drum or backdrop and the k’naan version also gives me that exact feeling. It’s more of a laid back chillin in the back of the venue, meeting the guys afterwards kinda vibe.
I know the lyrics are the same but with the Sean Paul version it gives me more of a front row party type of thing which is also an amazing feeling and amazing place to be. Just right now the laid back one is my fave but then again it’s past midnight so that could be the reason. It might change in the morning.
So boys give the song a chance to grow on me like the first version and ill let you guys know on tour what i think of it and which version is my favorite
