My battle is with the song Careless Whisper originally performed by George Michaels when he was in the band Wham! The song was released in 1984 when I was just a sophomore in high school. LOL!
Here ya go:
Ok so now for the battle. It is between two very different versions completely. We all have different tastes so it will be interesting which one you choose. I think you'll know which one is my favorite from some of the songs I've posted lately.
The first is a live version of Ben Folds and Rufus Wainwright. Ben Folds had band called Ben Folds Five for many years until he went solo. Rufus actually has recorded several tracks for films and movies and has appeared in a few movies as well. Rufus does an amazing version of the popular song "hallelujah". This performance was done in 2004 in NYC.
Next is performed by a rock n roll band Seether. This was released and made the Billboards hot 100 in 2009. Seether is a South African band and did the cover originally as a joke but it backfired and ended up becoming pretty big for them.
Ok so listen to both and tell me which one you prefer. I'm sure you've already been to the other battles but if not, go check them out.
