Love Maxwell...he is so bloody sexy....and his version is great....kept the integrity of the song, yet added his own unique twist....did I mention that he is so bloody sexy.
However, I have to give the edge to Kate's original as I am a huge fan.

I think I'll pick Maxwell. Someone put it on a CD they made for me... so it sounds warmly familiar :)

Maxwell and I cuncur on the 'so bloody sexy'...:drool: :drool: :drool:

Kate's version isn't bad at all and may even be great but Maxwell's is definitely great to me. :)

I didn't even know it was a remake. :o I LOVE Maxwell and I LOVE this song. This song of Maxwell's has always been a little strange for me because as much as I love it, there are times especially when I'm in the car, I just get scared to listen to it and often I'll flip to a another station. :o It's really haunting at times!! The original version is nice I guess. Hard for me to judge on just 30 seconds of it but it sounds emotional like Maxwell's version. :)

I love it and find it haunting too. I don't usually have to switch the dial on it, but one time I was in the car with someone while we were having a difficult time and this song was playing, and the tears flew up into my throat instantly. I never wanted a song to disappear so badly. :tape:
