Cover vs. Original

Stand by me


I like the cover version much better. It rocks much more and the singing fits much better to this song.

Dude King's version is way better than this crap Lennons versions cool though

If there's a version that compares to the original, it's John Lennon's. Simply beautiful, even though King's voice is better, Lennon seems to make it a bit rockier but still great.

40 odd years later Ben E. can still make the chills run down my spine. One of the best got to have someone to hold onto songs ever written.
