Cover vs. Original

Personal Jesus


The Johnny Cash cover is a blues/boogie-woogie version featuring acoustic guitars and piano. Of course everyone knows the Depeche Mode style, I assume.

Personal Jesus is a terrific song by Depeche Mode. I have seen them once live in Copenhagen performing this song. Brilliant. My vote goes to Depeche Mode.

The late Billy Prestons piano on the Cash-version is outstanding

There is no contest. Sorry, but Johnny is clearly too old and dying for his version to be of a quality on par with the original!
