The Nina Simone version is awesome, but Muse overtops it - not only because of Matt's incredible way of singing but also by the perfect exertion of musical contrasts.
The Michael Bubblee version is a crap compared to the aboves!

Comments about Feeling Good:
|The thing that makes Nina Simone's version better is that when you listen to it, you can tell that she's "feeling good" after a long time of feeling bad. It's not simply that she's feeling good, it's that she's *finally* feeling good. She's relishing feeling good. Muse seems to feel good all the damn time, and so it's not as powerful. |

|I agree to the quote on the top of page.|
I really think that Muse did it great.
I'm not trying to underestimate Nina's
original version or her voice, but if I
compare their voices I think Matt's has
a more potential vocal...
No offense to anybody else who likes Nina's
version better, this is just my honest

|Muse FN Rox and that's all that needs to be said. Nina's version *blah*|

|Muse is a pretentious whiny boy band that pretends it has soul; nina simone = legend|

|As much as I do love Muse, and their version is absolutely fantastic and I could listen to it over and over without a doubt. It has to be said that Nina's version cannot be bettered in my eyes and will always remain one of my all time favourite songs. |
So folks its got to be Nina!

|Muse sounds more like they're "Feeling Castrated" than anything on this track. Love them, but still... come on. Can't touch Nina Simone. |

|Muse's version is way better, there's nothing to discuss, Matt's voice is incredible and his way of singing touches me more than Nina's does. |
Muse completes the song

|I voted for the Muse version as well. It was a very, very hard choice, however. I agree that Nina's voice is an instrument and solo-band in itself, but loving rock and muse as much as I do and adding the overdone intro by Nina, I chose Muse. |
By the way: Could anybody please tell me any other versions you know of besides Michael Bubblee's? Thanks!

|The Muse version is really good, on a song that you have to be brave just to attempt. It has to be Nina though - she's maybe my favourite singer of all time, I can't think of any of her songs where anyone else has bettered her version.|
- Adam, Glasgow, Scotland, 10.04.2007
|I agree that those two songs are totally uncomparable. The style is totally different, but both are really fantastic. Nina Simone has a really powerfull, deep and beautiful voice, but the Muse interpretation of this song is really interesting. I voted for Muse just because they are my favourite band.|
I really don't understand what do you mean. I don't think that there is more marketing in Muse than in Nina Simone's music..
