Arashi’s "We can make it!" is a cover?!

This just blew my mind.
We can make it! is one of the two songs that got me into Arashi. I love the song and it has a really high playcount on my iPod.
I just found out today that it’s a cover. Apparently the original is “Love is All Around”, by some woman named Agnes Carlsson. Well.
So I immediately went onto Youtube to find the original. After a search of the artist + the title, I didn’t find any music video or anything. However, I found this:

Ohhh wow. xDD I’m only a casual fan of Arashi, I listen to their music but I don’t know any of their names or anything. (I can’t see myself ever getting into Johnny’s like I did with Hello! Project, one uber idol group is enough. X_x) Still though, it’s really amusing to have a girl’s song playing over a video of a guy group. xD And apparently the Arashi version added some parts, considering this video has to cut to audio from We can make it! in order to fit with the PV. xD

It’s always weird to find out that a song I listen to a lot is a cover, cause I always think of the one I heard first as the original. I kept almost referring to We can make it! as the original in this post…

    is it really a cover if it’s the same tune with totally different lyrics (even if you translate it it’s still quite different)? It’s like a half-cover or something. That video is quite funny though

    Well, not really. I know the lyrics are totally different. But I don’t know what else to call it. xD

    Actually Angela Carlson was the one who did a cover for the song. Johnny’s bought the rights of the soundtrack to some Swedish recording company.. XDDD who also later on gave the rights to Angela Carlson… ^o^

    I’m an Arashi fan so you can pretty much trust me. This is what Johnny’s get for buying songs in Sweden.. -_- Anyways, We can make it is so much more better than her version.. ^^ (bias, here) LOLS!

    Really? On both Wikipedia and ThePPN Wiki, it said that We can make it! is the cover. And the Arashi version came out after the other one…

    Either way, Arashi’s version is much better. xD

    Oops, my mistake… ^-^

    I meant the other Australian girl..who did a cover for this song. You are right that Angela Carlson was the first one.. ^^

    Gosh, there are just way too many people doing a version of this song… >0< Lols!
