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 :)

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

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 :eek: and the hairs stand up...

I love the original 'One' too :worship:

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

I can't stand U2 or Mary J. Blidge

Undoubtedly, the original version. :worship:

Apart from a few exceptions, I usually prefer the original versions of the songs. :cool:

I like U2 and I like Mary J Blige.

I like U2's version of 'One' and it's one of my favourite songs of all time :) but I also love the version of One with Mary. her voice is great on it.

But as I'm such a U2 fan and have grown up listening to them. I voted for U2 but I like both versions!
