    I do like the Whittaker version but I think Coldplay was the best.

    The ORGY version is new to me so this time I enjoyed it more than the original, but I don't think it will become a timeless classic - so my vote goes to NEW ORDER anyway:D

    I like Halsey's vocals and I love what she has done with this song, but I'm going with the original because I love the second brother's voice on this.

    The Flying Pickets versions was innovative, original and fresh, even though it was a cover, and although I love the original, given the choice I would choose the Flying Pickets version.

    I like this one best. I love this song as a duet and Marvin Gay's voice is to die for.
