Just Say No: 10 Songs That Should Never Be Remade

How Will I Know

Though we’ve delivered several examples of songs that are just not the greatest and don’t deserve a remake, we’d be remiss to not include some selections that are so good, so incredible, so triumphant that any artist who attempts a remake it bound to fail miserably. While we could have literally picked any song out of Whitney Houston’s canon (“I Will Always Love You,” “Saving All My Love,” etc.) we went with one of her biggest upbeat hits: “How Will I Know.” It really comes down to one simple question: Can you possibly, under any circumstances, imagine a voice that could deliver the same amount of joy you experience when that track gets played? I think for most of us, the answer is a resounding no.
