A is really more for a man to sing, and JC sounds a bit detached from it. It kind of needs Ezrin grandeur to work for me. It doesn't strike me as that 'coverable' a song, really, and she doesn't do anything to change that.

That said, B...just...NO, dude. Just no.

I'm sorry he's gone, and I'm sure he was being sincere, but...just NO.

A's coming across as very Pebble Mill, despite the title. The sound quality feels horrible here it sounds like the cassette has been at the bottom of a swamp for a decade. Which is probably the best place for it.

B Seems like a decent enough rock ballad version. Fairly unremarkable, but I've probably heard worse.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

a - I thought this was the original. Live and learn. Always found it rather histrionic, although JC gives it a fair go. Not sure why hatz feels a song about domestic violence should not have a female vocalist, but I only ever heard this version. Um, 4.5 / 10
b - Look, I'm getting fed up with these live versions. 'cover' is and always has been a shortening of 'cover record' because the concept of covering does not apply to someone singing someone else's song in the bath, or in the pub, so why should it on stage. Think of how many millions of 'cover versions' there are of Happy Birthday or The Stars and Stripes. Anyway, this is a decent vocal, I thought, but the song has always been pants, and I'm knocking off a couple of points from this and any live version I come across in future, so 2.5 / 10

A is nice. I vaguely remember the original, but I don't need to check it. B ... really?

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

"Only women bleed"? Fuck off.

But I'm not feeling B either. At all.

Abstain.
