    I choose the cover by Spill, but it was a close match.

    I didn't realise this song was a cover until now, I thought the Beyoncé version was the only one, thanks Emelee. I preferred the BC Jean version because (for my taste) the vocals sound more natural and less dramatic/polished than Beyoncé.

    This one surprised me, as prior to listening I thought I would prefer Moby. The original sounds more raw which suits the song better for me.

    This one is far better than the original.

    I came across this kid singing this song on one of those singing shows. So I wanted to post his cover as someone that wants to be a singer and the original too see what your choice would be.

    A good singer like Labrinth (is that the singer or a band?) should know better than to sing a song like this.
    But it's good material for those OTT The Voice performances so I vote for the nameless guy.:p


    The Bike That I Ride / Ghost (Cowboys In The Movies) -> same song, different titles...what do you think of that @Long Lashes?:D

    Willie I think thats a great idea for a new thread :hats:


    I've not heard this quirky song before and really enjoyed it. Both versions are great, although the cover by The Jeevas is my winner.

    What a good song! I'm going to chose the cover version by Dana Valery because she makes the song sound more passionate.
