I used to think this was the original version until a DJ burst my bubble when I was trying to show off. :laughing:

Anyway, still think this is better than the original too.

Martin: „So what songs are left to rehearse?”
John: „One that goes like this!”
Martin thinking: „Oh what a great song”
And then he realises it’s Elvis
„Get fookin serious guys”

Coldplay - Yellow

Cover by Annaca. All of her covers are super high quality but this one knocks the original out of the park IMO.

The Better Version, not denying the original was good in it's time..
My Favourite Love Song Ever...

I think the best version, by far, is the Nina Simone rendition.
From the Colpix label of her Town Hall concert in 1959.

Maybe it was due to the timing, but this classic ballad had a version by Martyn Bates that caught my ears back in '87. True, Dusty Springfield has THE version that I heard a decade after listening to this, but you know how it goes when some 80's "angsty" Late Teen already familiar with Eyeless in Gaza hears something on late night radio knowing nobody in your immediate area will ever hear of it (in this case CBC's Brave New Waves) and just connects with it (plus, separating from a relationship also helps, but that's another story for another time).

rostasi 12-27-2021 08:35 PM

Three best versions of that song.

Two variations of the Archies/Don Kirshner super hit...

First the soulful version from the Wicked Pickett -



Then the killer sarcastic "heavy" bulldozing that can only be done by Alex Chilton -



Not too into the Germs' version which was better caught seen back in the day but I'm sure there are it's fans.

Scott Walker proving that this song was his (with help by producer John Franz, of course!). Shoved The Four Seasons' version into the world of the never heard for good reason.

I don't necessarily think its better than the original (if anything its a very close second), but I really love Twenty One Pilots version of Cancer by My Chemical Romance. Its very calm and sad and very fitting for the subject of the song.
