I was afraid of that. It's unfortunate that they chose to break with the traditional meaning and history of the song. Now that I've researched the context of the original, I understand at least some of it.
Treating their rewrite as an entirely separate song, it's not bad, but I think I would be a lot more satisfied with it if I could put it in context -- too bad it has none.
