  1. I like that blonde chick 😉

  2. Bill Withers’ version is SO identified with the song that it’s hard to compare others to it.

    Taylor Hicks’ live version with the killer harp bridge is it’s only rival.

    YB — I like yours for a woman’s version. 😉 Congrats on the “deal”.

  3. Yes, the blond chick is pretty good. MM – I agree about the harp in Taylor’s version. I think these 2 and Bill Withers’ versions are all great. Best would depend on the mood I’m in.

    Sting and my man Kenny’s versions are not so good.
