Friday Fun

I recently heard a cover of the Deniece Williams classic, Free, by Corinne Bailey Rae. While not bad, it made me long for the original, and that gave me an idea. (Okay, so I'm supposed to be writing, but I don't mind telling you I took the night off. I'm in desperate need of some "me" time. I'll post my little bit of progress later today.)

Many songs have been covered by more than one artist. Let's have a little fun. Which of these tunes do you like better. I will warn you, this is a toughie.

Marvin Gaye

Gladys Knight and the Pips

So what'd'ya think?

Can't say. I love them both. They are equally the bomb!

I love the Marvin Gaye version better. Maybe it's because that's the version that I hear most of the time.

Gwyneth Bolton said...

That's a hard one! I like both versions and they each put their own "stank" on it! LOL. Nah... I can't decide between these two. Love them both.

Even though I like both I would have to say Marvin. As a matter of fact I have Marvin playing in my car right now!!

I've got to go with Marvin as well, by a hair, because I really like the version by Gladys and company as well. The tempo is so different, it almost sounds like two different songs.

Thanks for commenting, all! Be sure to check my blog this coming Friday for two more versions of the same song.
