Hang on, UB40's version was at No 1 in the US for 7 weeks in a row......Elvis's never made it to number 1. Thats a FACT not an opinion :-)

ELVIS ES DIOS, ASI DE SIMPLE. PERO ESO, NO RESTA MERITO A LOS UB40, AL CONTRARIO. LOS ELEVA, SITUANDOLO ENTRE LOS MEJORES, YA QUE NO ES FACIL, REVERSIONAR, I CON UN ESTILO MUCICAL BASTANTE DIFERRENTE, UNA DE LAS MEJORES BALADAS DEL KING PRESLEY. SOLO PIDO 1 FAVOR A LA GENTE QUE ORGANIZA ESTE TIPO DE ENCUESTAS: NO MEZCLEN AGUA Y ACEITE, NO SE PUEDE MESURAR EN KILOS LOS LIQUIDOS, NI LITROS LO SOLIDO. PONGANSE LAS PILAS. AMBOS SON LOS INPRECINDIBLES!!!!!

Elvis Presley did the best version ub40's is good but they could not match up to the king's distinctive voice and repetoire. All hail the king of rock and roll and may he and his music live forever!

ELVIS SHEER CLASS - NEVER EVER BE ANYONE LIKE HIM AGAIN - FOR SURE

Elvis is de enige echte King! Alle covers van zijn nummers maken maar weer eens duidelijk hoe goed hij is en was!

UB40 no está mal, pero esto me parece algo así como comparar a Dani Devito Vs. Woody Allen... Elvis Forever!.

Elvis is always the King and no-one can touch his voice

I THINK UB40´S IS ONE OF THE BEST MADE COVERS I´VE HEARD.ELVIS WILL ALWAYS BE THE KING BUT IN THIS CASE, THE COVER BECOMES COOLER THAN THE ORIGINAL
