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.

Eva's version is one of the top three most pure songs the planet has ever known. Even Sting said that Eva reached a level of emotional movement that he hadn't. If you haven't heard this song, I guarantee that decades from now, you'll remember the first time you heard this song.
