Cover vs. Original

Against All Odds


In the early 80s Phil Collins came up with one of the most brilliant ballads ever written, the classic "Against all odds (Take a look at me now)". Very few tried to cover the song later, but so did Mariah Carey in 1999 as part of her "Rainbow"-Album. Both versions don't differ that much, but it's Mariah's Voice that gives the cover version a little more thrill and passion. Both versions were massive radio hit singles.

WTF?

The Postal service cover is almost as terrible as Mariah's version.

Phil Collins is one of the UK's most prolific singer/song writer.

Forget Mariah Carey. What about the Postal Service version? It seems to me that was every bit as good as the Phil Collins version.

(Interesting bit of trivia: How many of you knew this song is originally from the motion picture soundtrack of a movie with the same name?)
