Cover vs. Original

Fields of Gold


Only four years after the originally released single by sting, "Songbird" Eva Cassidy chose to cover this track, which was later released on her multi-platinum-selling album "Songbird" (a major U.K. Hit-Album). Reduced to the very minimum of Eva's voice, this version surely gives you creeps.

what can i say what an incredible young lady. putting her heart and soul into every word with such emotion she brings you to tears!!! one of the most emotional if not the most emotional heart felt singer ever to have lived. she meant everything she sang. today singers can sing amazingly but they cannot learn to put that emotion into a song. bye bye Eva Cassidy gone but never forgotten as your songs make us realise for just a fractionpf our lives just how wonderful our world is !!!!

As Sting himself said.... Eva´s version is by far the best.

I seriously can't decide here. Both singers bring so much to the song...

How about singing along with the backing music?
Sting's original is far better - I heard someone sing this version on the X-factor (British talent show, like American Idol) and I thought she's screwed up the song but it was just the Eva Cassidy version...

Great voice Eva but no way this baby is Stings!

A pure and innocent yearning in her voice cuts through to my soul every time I hear this song.
