Cover vs. Original

The Scientist


Coldplay's song is one of my all time favourite, but Aimee Mann's cover is so amazing! I had so much trouble deciding what my favourite version was (I picked Aimee, probably because she's less famous). What do YOU think?

Comments about The Scientist:

I'm not a huge Coldplay fan myself, but the Aimee version was nauseating. Taken way too far in the worst way possible. Eww

Prefer Johnette Napolitano's version over both of these.

Coldplay fans, do yourself a favor and give this and the rest of Aimee's catalog a listen. Nothing against Coldplay, but, with them, you have only seen the opening act. You are now ready to graduate. Aimee is the real deal.
