Who's Version of "One" is better

Is Mary j Blidge and U2 version of One better or U2's original still the best. I think Its the New one i mean im no fan of U2 i'll admit but it sounds like that song was written for someone like Mary to sing she sings it with so much passion and brings a whole new dimension to it imo. She so deserves it to be no 1 and get her first no 1 on the other side of the Atlantic. What do u guys think

Grassonkova.

I like both versions. Mary adds something unique to the song, but the original is still very much a classic.

And it's Mary J. Blige, not Blidge.

The new version! That is how a cover should be done, you should bring something new to it, and it's got a really smooth and contemporary feel, plus when Mary belts it out it's and the hairs stand up...

I love the original 'One' too

I'm a big U2 fan, and One is a legendary song, so I voted the original.

I have to say, Mary J Blige did a very good job on the cover though. Better than I would have expected. Brings something different to it, certainly

The song is so good that it's a hard one to mess up. That being said, Mary J. did a solid job. However, you just can't beat the original. That and "Pride" are my favorite U2 songs ever... (they ARE overrated, but those two songs are just amazing)

The original one by far! Johnny Cash did a great version of it and Lighthouse Family did a good job when they used a bit of it in one of their songs

DANIELA IN 2010

And all the best for Elena

U2 alone...Hands down...the other version doesn't compare

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******
