Cover vs. Original

I can't make you love me


Although I'm a big Prince fan this ballad is more sympathetically recorded by the stubbly one.

Edit by Admin: The original version of this song was recorded by Bonnie Raitt in 1991.

Comments about I can't make you love me:

I LOVE Prince's version of the song. I didn't even know that George Michael did a cover of the song. Bonnie Raitt's version is cool, but I'm a huge Prince fan and my vote goes to him.

george michael is a dirty talentless faggot and not a patch on the sublime Bonnie Raitt

I love prince & George Michael both of them are my heroes; but the original version is much better than those they made.

George Michael sounds just like Bonnie Raitt and that Prince chick sounds like bad and drunken karoake.

Bonnie Raitt's song, much like Motown's music , started out pretty good and then every rendition thereafter just continues to get worse. Both of these versions is lacking.

Yup. And Bonnie Raitt's is the best. Who liked Prince's cover anyway?

George is like warm honey on this one. Wins hands down even though I like Prince Also.

I now se that you have that info listed...but then this whole thing makes no sense since neither is the O.G. both songs are lovely though...

Neither one of these artists is the original. Bonnie Raitt did it first. Just an FYI...
