One of my least favorite songs,it was either H or I for me,picked H because i like the extra touch of harmonica and organ.

When they play it live it's bearable but the album version makes me cringe :oops:

To be honest when they played it in Brussels i almost enjoyed it but that had a lot to do with Millard.

I prefer Joni owns, But I will admit I enjoyed listening to all the versions before the final list, which is something I can't say about all the other songs from HC

This is the one song from the Hard Candy live compilation that I can't bring myself to download; I'm sorry, but just one listen of BYT is more than enough for me.

I actually prefer the version by the crows over the original. This is probably heresy but thats just the way it is.

Hmm. I really like the more recent versions with the elongated "Don't it always seem..." part after the instrumental, but didn't really dig any of those versions here.

Down to D and I. Loved the energy in Adam's performance in D, love the sound of I (along with the performance).

Q for Graham - do you think D is cleanable? Like, it sounded a little hissy, but it wasn't bad overall. But if in editing you could clean the hiss, I think I might go with D.
