      +Cybdiver Underwater Nice to see someoone recognize this as a Kate Bush song. I like Maxwell but credit where credit is due. So often these days artists are given credit for songs that were originally done by someone else often long ago. I thought Michael made a pretty good showing for himself here despite the lynch mob trashing his performance.

  • Figaro Bonachelli
    Figaro Bonachelli 4 years ago

    First of all, this is a song written and first performed by Kate Bush. Maxwell does an ok karaoke attempt, but frankly if you listen to the original you realize all of these covers are poor attempts.
    Kate wrote this after her mum died. The feeling she injects into the song coupled with that haunting voice is just incredible. Props to Mike for his attempt. He has a great voice, but it takes more than that to make this song work. Nobody does it better than Kate.

    He seems to be in his upper register the entire song - even the NON falsetto parts.
    No real power in the bass parts of the song. He seems to try and cover that up with dance moves.

  • Helen Trope

    None of them mention Kate Bush or seem to know that it's her song. This is a very truncated version though.

  • C Smooth
    C Smooth 4 years ago

    I have never heard of Kate Bush or even knew that there was an original version from someone other than Maxwell. I looked up this version from Kate and was quite impressed...beautiful voice. Both artists sanged this song with perfection. It all depends on what you are in to. If you want a soft love version, Kate may be your choice. If you want a sexual, soul filled version, Maxwell may be your choice. The point is people, we can't say who was better. The point is what we prefer.

    • Figaro Bonachelli
      Figaro Bonachelli 4 years ago

      Kate wrote the song to express what she, her brothers and father were going through after her mum died. Sexual? Soulful? For crying out loud, listen to the lyrics! To sing this song in a sexual or soulful way is insulting! That just isn't what the song is about!
      I didn't actually get that impression from Maxwell. I thought he made a decent attempt, but it is hard to express the grief the song demands unless you have those experiences and I think that is why these covers just don't measure up.

    STREET MUSIC GENERATION 4 years ago +3

    WHAT makes this song magical is 'falsetto'... (Maxwell's version). nothing else.

    DVNKNG 4 years ago +9

    such a bad attempt at this song

    • Figaro Bonachelli
      Figaro Bonachelli 4 years ago +1

      It wasn't that bad an attempt. The problem with it is that he never seems to have read the lyric sheet, he just sings it. This is a very emotional song, and if you don't get it, then you can't sing it well.
      My main complaint is that if you are going to change a song to "make it your own" you need to do it in a meaningful way that still relates to the lyrics. This is a song about grief after a family member has died. It isn't a soul song, it isn't sexual and it certainly shouldn't be belted out like a rock ballad.
      Those who are referring to Kate Bush as just a pop artist have no idea, and certainly are ignorant of music history. Kate is "pop" like Gabriel or Ferry are "pop." Yes all of them had pop success, but they were hardly Disney kids. Little known fact. That little headpiece microphone everyone uses today? Kat Bush and her sound engineers invented that and were the first to use it in live performance.

  • Prelestnost2
    Prelestnost2 5 years ago +4

    Personally Maxwells version is too r'n'b soulful for me, he has a great voice but is no way better than Kates original. Nothing wrong with r'n'b but this song just wasn't meant to be in this genre. Apparently a lot of people here are too focused on one type of music. I can't believe somebody wrote Kate was bland!? Not this wonderful, singer nor Maxwell can reach her vocal ability and artistry, both are mainstream, Kate never was and this song neither.

  • jessie jay
    jessie jay 5 years ago +35

    eveybody is always saying that nobody can top kate bush version but in my opinion maxwell 's version is way more better than kate. yes it is written by kate but maxwell version is more soulful and did the song more justice than kate eventhough it is written by kate.

    Point of order: Maxwell's was a cover. But it's always amazing when a cover becomes the definitive version of a song. Think Got to Get You Into My Life as covered by Earth, Wind, & Fire, or Proud Mary as performed by Ike & Tina.

Now I hear him bringing chicks back. He's constantly getting the hottest women back. I can't help but hear it. It's yucky. If only he never discovered that site. My best friend is getting laid now too coz of that site. I'm jealous!

  • Subie Gate
    Subie Gate 6 years ago

    All these negative comments about how this doesn't measure up to Maxwell is nonsense. Thinking a cover needs to be as "good" as the original to be credible is missing the point . Obviously Maxwell is incredible. A cover is simply a different artist putting their interpretation on a song. If you can cover a song this difficult and keep it smooth you've done something special. Mike did this song justice. If covers need to be as "good" as the original, then doing covers just got real boring.

  • onelove
    onelove 6 years ago

    Kate Bush version was very boring. The only reason we listen to it now is because of Maxwell's version. Sorry if you can't handle the truth. And, no, caring who wrote doesn't contribute to the success of the song at all. Never knew about Kate "boring" Bush's version until a few years ago.

  • onelove
    onelove 6 years ago

    Who cares if she wrote it? She should've let someone else sing it. Her version version boring.

  • onelove

    I certainly agree. He's a great singer, but his version of this song is the worst ever. And, yes, Maxwell is the one who made this song worth listening too, not kate bush.

  • jasco927
    jasco927 6 years ago

    @skypup77, your first three words are all that's necessary. It is my opinion that maxwell sounds better singing it. And by the way, I know "tone death" isn't a thing but I have a "smartphone" that auto corrects. Maybe if you weren't still living in the 80s you might assume that may have been the issue.
    @sadesaychelles, I have to disagree with you. The choice for this song is generational. As recently proven by BGT star Hope Murphy who recently re-popularized maxwell's version in Britain.

  • Mark Buday
    Mark Buday 6 years ago

    also, "tone death" isnt a thing.

  • Mark Buday
    Mark Buday 6 years ago

    In your opinion. Maxwell may have popularized the song for a different generation and for fans of a different type of music, but the song was very popular when Kate released it in the 80s, and i still like her version the best.
