Comments about Everybody hurts:

Song sucks, but sounds better coming out of a chick's mouth than a transsexual's mouth (Michelle Stipe), so I'm going with the Coors. They make better beer too.

Bah, this is just one of those songs that should never be covered by anybody, period. It is only the orignal I like.

REM's original version of the song is better, but Andrea Corr and her sisters are much easier on the eyes.

Fiar play to The Corrs. It's a tough song to pull off when REM are such a well respected. It's good to know I'm not the only one who agrees that they are both as good as each other but REM still get my vote.

Michael Stipe RULESSSS !!!
- Andrews Athanasius, Cairo, Egypt, 18.08.2007
Both versions are indeed, and Unplugged is a fantastic album, but Michael Stipe captures the song perfectly I think - the Corrs' voices are too sweet to get the full effect in my view
- Richie, Cork, Ireland, 14.08.2007
Yes I agree, both versions are really great!
- Rob, Prague, Czech Republic, 12.08.2007
I love both versions, also.
