Lol, i'm sure that album is filled with fond memories for you then pourya jan :brows:

I had a similar affinity to an album with an ex, namely Dru Hill's "Enter the Dru". Fantastic album, filled with stellar ballads, and smooth r&b/soul!! Like Az Yet, most of the band came from a gospel background. The album included this fantastic rendition of "The Dells - The Love We had (stays on my mind)".... Sisqo's outro improvised lead gives me goosebumps everytime!!

I cant believe this! How can a singer like George Michael make such a horrible version of a great classic! He has removed everything that was great about the original, ruined his own vocal strength and ... I'm speechless!

Oh it's terrible isn't it!! I was shocked to see someone like George Michael resort to something like that. He is supposedly one of the great songwriters of our time, yet butchered a classic. A very peculiar "artistic" direction he's heading in.

I'm not too crazy about the original but I like the soft cover from the Dutch Idol, if I'm not mistaking ...

A cover that is so much better than the original and has actually had its own covers! From the Donnie Darko OST btw

Just seen that Robyn cover. It was actually first recorded by Robyn herself acoustically for BBC1 Live Lounge...

Probably the most successful remake of all time. Completely reworked into a soul-pop contemporary ballad, with the addition of one of the finest instrumental (tenor sax) solos to grace a pop song and a beautiful acapella intro/outro. A cover that far surpassed the original....
