Come on, no contest! Berlin all the way. I've always believed that the original is always the best, no matter the quality of the cover. Only 2 or 3 exceptions come to mind, but they're all songs in French, so I won't bother you. But usually, nothing beats the original in my mind

definitely berlin... jessica simpson is not able to sing with her soul, she doesn"t seem to understand what she sings (it' might be a little hard for her abyssal mind lol)...

so definitely berlin!!!!

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Berlin without a doubt. What was she thinking.... She should have kept her hands of the song!

This is a no-brainer. BOTH versions suck! I don't know Jessica Simpson's version but it doesn't matter because I've been hearing the original from something like 20 years and it still gets on my last nerve! The melody sucks and so does the chorus and the girl who sang it the first time didn't actually hit it out of the park in the vocals dept (and I'm being nice when I say that). Take My Breath Away is one of those songs that have you going as to why it's popular.
