Saying the Foo Fighters version is better is like saying Limp Bizkit's version of Behind Blue Eyes is better than The Who's version (and if you like Limp's version better then you have no taste in music). It's very rare a remake is better than the original.

The original is definitely better. Distorting a guitar doesn't cut not being able to play a sax. The original is a soulful song, that like using a guitar to replace the sax solo in Foreiner's 'Urgent'. I actual like it when a group hacks a song badly, it makes me go out and buy the original.

I love the foo fighters but they don't get this one. And "lame 70's sax solo" really? You have the right to not like sax music but dude, come on!

foo fighters poor version of this song.

The Sax it's better than the entire of foo ("foockers")group.

Foo = childs = SUCKERS! = "Original Theme PAPI"

Gerry's version is so much better. Although I do like the Foo Fighters their version just sounds bad and muffled. Perhaps if they used a different sound on the guitar... or better yet, a saxophone! =D

The Gerry Rafferty original is a genuine work of art, however, the Foo Fighters version gives it an undeniable modern twist that rock fans can't go without

Gerry Rafferty is the best.

Foo Fighters are my passion, so I have to say he they did the way better job here. The Sax sux!
