Both rule, but I just about prefer the more up tempo version.

Comments about All The Young Dudes:

Bowie actually gave the song to Mott, 'cos they were buddies and he was already doing so well from his other material, so it's legitimate to call their version the original. Out of the two bands cited in this contest, they win hands-down.

Come on, the F-Ups ruined it!

I don't think Mott's version can be considered an original even though it might have chronologically preceded Bowie's own recording. Bowie wrote the song, therefore, the original is his. Somebody please add a new comparison.

No-one can surpass Mott The Hoople's version (including David Bowie, who wrote it). As I write this the votes are 85/15 in favour of Mott; frankly I'm surprised The F-Ups got that many votes!
