>Hands down–at least over here–no one beats The Carpenters’ Superstar.
KPop singer Wheesung manages to do an adequate version, but I think there’s a bit of disconnect between him and the meaning of the lyrics.
Then there’s Luther. Luther got the meaning, and I tell you, if you pay attention to the lyrics, his version allows for the interpretation that this is a love song sung by a man to another man who doesn’t know the depth of the other man’s feelings.
This interpretation is very clear when Usher sings Luther’s version as a tribute.
And this may be just me that see this, but I always thought Karmen Stavec’s Lep Poletni Dan is effectively an upbeat interpretation of Superstar.
