 Post subject: Compare the songs
PostPosted: Sat Jul 23, '11, 11:07 pm 
Many songs have been performed by several different artists, and each one has it's own unique identity and sound. Let's compare the same songs but sung by different artists and see which versions we like better. As always, remember to follow the rules and etiquette of the forum in posting songs, etc.

I'll start us off with this song below. The song is "Blowing In The Wind"

Joan Baez :

Bob Dylan:

Peter, Paul, & Mary:

Which version do you like best, and why?

I didn't really like any of them to tell you the truth. Do you have anything more recent?

Of those three, I'd have to say I enjoyed Baez's performance the most. Dylan's was a bit bland. I grew up hearing Peter, Paul, & Mary perform it (my parents were fans of theirs) and this is really the first time I've heard anyone else sing the song. That didn't seem like their best performance either.

Okay, here's another group of songs to compare. This song is "Jump" with one version by popular group Van Halen and the other version by legendary crooner, Paul Anka. Which version do you like best?

I'll have to go with Van Halen on this one. Anka's take feels too sedate for this particular song. It doesn't have a very stirring quality to it.

I prefer the second one. The first one was rather grating and got on my nerves, honestly.
