    Here's my own upload; slightly better quality.



    Cover by Anberlin



    I think this cover sucks. I mostly hate the chorus, yuck. I'm sure youngsters love this one though.

    Something I've been looking for. Frente did a couple of videos for Accidently Kelly Street, one of which was this, and another which just had them sitting around in a living room on a sofa. I'm looking for the second video.

    Also, Buffy fans may recognise the singer.

    Edit: Never mind, here's the second video.

    Original:
    Fantasy Bulan Madu - Search

    Cover:
    結他低泣時 - Danny Summer
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1QDNwG_7wA

    Cover:
    無聲的吉他 - Jacky Cheung
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmSQVklCXL4

    All 3 are good. But, I like Danny Summer's version best. His voice/singing style has a very certain quality that makes the sad song he sings very heart-breaking. Jacky's version is the softest and gentlest. The whole song is slow and doesn't have must changes tone. The original version by Search is a rock song. So, Search sing their's in a more intense way. The chorus is especially 'gik'.

    Btw, Danny Summer is someone whose album I would not listen in one go. I will be very depress listening to his songs one after another. His singing style/voice is that heart-breaking.

    I've been a huge Tang Dynasty fan ever since listening to this for the first time...


    This cover version by Screaming Savior sucks a biiiiig time.

    Nothing against a bit of growl, but that rendition just ... rubs me the wrong way.

    Just listen to Sinéad O'Connor's version of 'Don't Cry for Me Argentina'. Love her rendition. I used to like Madonna's version the most. But, Sinead's version become my fave version now.
