i like the new and the old one, dont make me choose, i like the older intro, 'classic rock and roll (like something you find in an arcade)', but i like the funkeyness of the new one, i need a neutral category - just to be different Very Happy

With the old version there is this gap, the Hammer fills it in really well.

i dont really think that it is fair to say that you 'hate' the new glitterskin
surely such intense feelings of dislike are spurred by the amount which you liked the old one?
personally i regard them both highly on their merits and find that the fact that they are so strikingly disimilar distinguishes them as separate songs.
the new glitterskin has made me appreciate the old one (for what it is) more although it was never really my favourite reuben song. i love the new one for its delightfull 'kitsch-ness' and the old one for its darkness

personally I'm a HUGE fan of the new glitterskin....although, lets face it, its pretty damn similar to the old version, the FK one sounds a lot beter to me - more like the 'New Reuben' - No One Wins the War, SIMT and the like - and, I personally think the production etc...are a lot better

Keyboard/organ completely ruins it. It would be great otherwise.

Its made what was originally ( to me ) a mediocre crappy grunge rock song into something pretty cool and sleazy! New version = much better

someone asked on gonzo why they had to ruin glitterskin!

Jamie said something along the lines of "You try playing a hammond organ with your elbow!"
