What's your favourite version of the song?

Personally i have to go with the Jeff Buckley version, it's beautiful, almost perfect. i also think the new X-factor version is absolutely AWFUL. not just because i'm a purist of some sort, but the girl singing sounds like she's completely missed the feeling of the song, there's no emotion.

How bout you?

I have to place my vote to Rufus Wainwright. His cover is just so soothing and relaxing and I love his voice. That and I don't really like the Leonard Cohen version to be honest.

'The Sherek song' as my Son calls it.
Personally, I find it quite hard to go wrong with that song. I actually thought Alexandria Burke put a lot of Soul, feeling and emotion into it. [She had to, to win the X-Factor show.]
It made the U.K's number 1 in the music charts, and for the first time in history, the same song made number 2 in the charts, but by a different singer:

I have to agree with you, I think Jeff Buckley has the best version by far. 2 of my friends did a version of their own which I absolutely fell in love with, but obviously they aren't famous so no one else will have ever heard it.

Rufus Wainwright's version is my favourite and I personally think that it's hard to beat. I didn't like the XFactor version, I don't think it suits a female voice.
