There are certain songs in this world that should never be covered, and that's number one on my list.

And here comes this pop girl covering it.

I hate the whole world now.

(I refuse to listen to it, by the way. I don't need to hear it to hate it.)

Am I the only one who thinks it's somewhat ok? Sure, her voice seems kinda flat, but you have to give her some creditability for her attempt. I think the instrumentals were done nicely and I think she herself is a talented musician. I've been a fan of the band for many years, and trust me, I've heard LOTS of terrible covers, but this one isn't too bad compared to all other ones. You just need to listen to it as a song by itself. For Vanessa to cover this song shows her appreciation for the band, just as bands such as EXIT show their appreciation, as well.

And for those who don't want to listen simply becuase it's not U2... then you should really hang your head, for people who appreciate music are not biased to simply one band. Musicians know this for a fact.

The fact of the matter is, Vanessa is not Bono. Vanessa is Vanessa. Bono is Bono.

Yeah, I think it's alright as well. I'm not a particular fan of Vanessa Carlton - never bought her music, have no inclination to do so - but I like her more than other young female stars, she does have an interesting voice and is very talented on the piano. It goes without saying that this cover is nowhere near the greatness of the original, but I didn't find it offensive to my ears.

Ouch that was BAD. I wanted to like it! It just reminded me of those CD's for kids where they get children to sing the latest hit songs. Kidz Bob I believe its called. Basically its torture.
