    Thanks Circ. Susan's is WAY better. So it goes to show. When someone covers a song even in a certain Style of another artist, it does not mean a bloody thing if they are better than the other artists.

    Thanks Circ, for this comparison video. As we've been sayin' all along, the two versions don't even compare, except for a somewhat similar phrasing style, but in no way is this a "copy" to be confused with. No amount of being attacked on YT is going to change our minds, especially when you can hear the differences.

    There's no doubt that Eva put her heart into this song, but Susan gave it that WOW factor... it's just plain beautiful!

    DK, thanks for your input, which I believe is spot on. The last paragraph speaks volumes, "There's no doubt that Eva put her heart into this song, but Susan gave it that WOW factor... it's just plain beautiful!"

    Susan makes every song "her own".

    Thanks Circ.

    When Eva sings this on her own, it's beautiful.

    I agree. Eva Cassidy was a beautifully gifted singer, with a remarkable range and variety of styles. She was a pioneer of unusual and iconic arrangements. We all know Susan touches our hearts in a unique way and her vocal impact is unequaled and extraordinary; but Eva also touched many hearts, and continues to do so, even after her tragic early death from cancer.

    Well said. Each singer is (and should be) unique rather than "best" or "not the best." Those of us who are drawn to Susan's voice will always feel it is the best. It may be hard not to fall into a competition mode, but fans do that unfortunately, especially online.

    "To love a person is to know the song in their heart & sing it to them when they've forgotten."
    They come, they come, to build a wall between us...we know they won't win." Don't dream it's over.

    I agree. Loved Eva's version long before Susan. Susan's voice is different and just as beautiful.
