Song of the Day

In 1989 English alternative rock band The Cure came out with "Lovesong." When I was in high school, 311's cover of the song was huge, and I still love that Slightly Stoopid, reggae-esque vibe of their version. Now, on Adele's hugely popular album "21" she has her own soulful version, which ends up being a powerful ballad. But below I posted her performance live on Letterman, because she really is simply that good. It's interesting how one song can extend across 3 different genres and have such different interpretations. Which version do YOU like best?

Adele

I'm torn between 311 and Adele, but maybe 311? Dah! I feel like I'm cheating on Adele for even thinking that.
