    Well... I really like the original of "Fire", but the cover is great too... Can I'm going to go undecided on this one :P

    I don't really like the original of "The Mexican"... The cover... I can't get over how cheesy Helloween can be, haha! I guess I'll pick the Helloween version, but neither really tickled my pickle.

    The Black Sabbath version of "Warning" is great! I've heard it many times! I've never heard the original though... I really like it!! It's the kind of classic rock I enjoy!! I think I'll go with the original!!

    I'll do part B in a few, youtube stopped working for some reason =/

    Edit-- Okay! Part B!!

    "Fire"

    1. The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - I liked this song a lot, it was quirky. Haha.

    2. The Prodigy - Hm I liked this one as well, but differently. On an everyday listen I think this one is easier for me to listen to, but the original was really great.

    "The Mexican"

    1. Babe Ruth - Didn't really care for this one. Neat yell at 0:50 though.

    2. Helloween - Well it's not something I'd instantly gravitate to but it's more easily listenable for me. I think the original is better though....I think....well....this is hard. xD

    "Warning"

    1. The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation - Very nice, I like it.

    2. Black Sabbath - Okay well all I was getting was the 30 second preview, even after signing in, so I had to use another link.

    I really like this cover. I mean I liked the original but I like this cover just as much. I can't decide which one I like more....I'll go with the cover.

    Okay I'll list some covers then. :P

    Fire-Original- I thought The cover was way too wierd and the original was really good

    The Mexican-Cover- Helloween is a great band and that cover rocked.

    Warning-Cover- One of my favorite Sabbath songs.

    Id find some covers but youtube's not working for some reason.
