Cover vs. Original

Walking in Memphis


The only song by Marc Cohn, which became a great success in Germany. Marc Cohn performs this song like nobody else. Even Cher is not fit to hold the candle to him, but she is not far away from Cohn.

I think both versions are great, and I think it depends a lot on what version you have heard first. My favourite is probably Chers because I like the way she sings "Man, I am tonight" with such power..

Cher's version is just a soul less cover version of the Cohn original

Both versions of the song are great but I think Cohn's Voice, Piano, and Choir sound better but Cher's Chorus's with the Drum n' Bass Jungle sound much better so I prefer Cher's version

Cohn is the right voice for the song (also the Lonestar version is excellent)
