Hey there!
The other day my Mom entered my room and heard Offspring's song "Feelings". She was surprised, because until that day she only knew the original version. Anyway, she started singing along and I was wondering if the original lyrics were the same..."Feeeelings, oh oh oh Feeeelings, trying to forget my feelings of loooove". That was what she sung, luckily she did not hear what Dexter was saying instead *lol*.

However, I would love to hear the original version, too! How is the artist called who had wrote it first?
Do you know the song? Did you even know it was a cover version?
Thx for any kind of help!
Greetings,
offy

The original is a ballad I think.. It's not any kind of punk or rock song.. It sucks. At least I think it does.

hmmm...

Albert Morris was singing it originally... it's much longer and slower than the cover. and the lyrics are a little bit different :D well, it's boring ballad about love played on acustic guitar. nothing special.


...It sucks. At least I think it does.

yes, it sucks.

edit: it's not guitar. i don't know what is it :D

It;s about love, whereas Offspring's version is about hate.

lol, yeah I know it sucks and is boring and stuff. But I'm curious, how it sounds like. At least you can listen to it for fun and in contrast to The Offspring's version.
Thx for mentioning the artist's name ;)

I have this song from Andy Williams and it's probably from 60's or 70's. I can upload it, if you want to.

Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.
Teardrops rolling down on my face,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl;
You'll never come again.

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, feel you again in my arms.

Feelings, feelings
Like I've never lost you
And feelings like I've never
Have you again in my heart.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl;
You'll never come again.

Feelings, feelings like I've
Never lost you
And feelings like I've never have you
Again in my life.

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, feelings again in my arms.
Feelings...

If I'm not wrong he is a brazilian that lived all of his life in France or I don't know. I just know that he doesn't live here.

...wait, none of you had ever heard the song before the offspring's version? wow... when I bought americana, I was like "holy shit, they totally changed this song..." I liked it. The original is not bad.

Lot of people here in Brazil knows the original song. Not the teenagers, I mean the people in the age of my dad (45 years)... My father refuse to say, but i know he liked the Offspring version... all the other adults, i think, don't even know there's a punk version of Feelings... On the other side 90% of the teenagers don't know Feelings was made by Morris Albert...

PS: the original version sucks, it's so damn slow.. really boring. I don't know how adults love it

slow does not equal bad... I hate when people make that assumption :-/ many times, a slow song takes MORE talent and energy to make sound awesome than a fast song... cause in a slow song, you can't cover anything up with the fact that it's fast... every flaw shines through...

I've listened to the 70's version by Albert Morris.

Definately not my taste.

Is this the original?

I think Feelings has lots of covers from many interprets. And they were all made in a long period of time (maybe 30 years or more). So I don't know what's the original version.
