Cover vs. Original

In a manner of speaking


Sure, speaking is not easy, nor is singing! But Camille Dalmais... is just awesome! This girl can sing!
Easy listening!
Enjoy!

Comments about In a manner of speaking:

I love the Tuxedo Moon version. So rich and haunting. The Nouvelle Vague remake is very thin.

Novelle vague definately it for me, but Tuxedomoon definately gets props for the lyrics. Great song.

Either way, an underappreciated song to be sure.

I have to go with Nouvelle Vague here. It's a beautiful melody that I feel works best over the Bossa Nova feel. She also has a beautiful voice that makes the song.

The Nouvelle Vague version is good, but the original Tuxedomoon version is best!

Not a favourite tux of mine, but give me authenticity any day!

Don't forget the Martin Gore cover from 1989.
