You know … I absolutely LOVE this song. And it seems so does everybody else.
This is one of the most “covered” new songs in recent memory. Seems like everybody has a take on it.
Subsequently it has been covered by a bunch of artists. From Beyonce, to Pink, to Nelly Furtado. Some good, some not so good.
Here ar the four very different versions by four very different artists … Barkley, Shawn Colvin, Ray Lamontagne, and Katie Noonan.
From the Barkley’s driving staccato and rhythmic back-beat, the Colvin’s smooth, lilting folk delivery, to the snarling aggression of Lamontagne, to the relaxed, bluesy Noonan styling, I think these are all great.
Have a listen and tell me which version you think is the best … or do you like another version better?
