Taking songs for real

Just got to know that Lacuna Coil, "Italian gothic metal band from Milan" (as Wikipedia reports. And I'm not going to venture trying out some other definitions: I'm not into metal et similia at all), made an elegant cover of Dubstar's "Stars", a good ten years ago ("Halflife" e.p., 2000).
I'm not a fan of Lacuna Coil, though I respected them much (each time an italian band / artist reaches international success through appreciable music... thumbs up, anyway). But, needless to say, I prefer Dubstar's original version.
And, for the record, Sarah (Blackwood, the charming singer), is one of the thirty? fifty? billion girls / women I fell in love with during my 90s.
