This little song has definitely made the rounds as a cover. Enrique Inglesias, Kylie Minogue, Joshua Radin, and Selena Gomez are some of the big names who have put their stamp on it. I listened to those artists’ versions and they are all good and quite distinct. But, if I’m going to post this song, it’s going to be the original featuring Alison Moyet, who was kind of my go-to female pop voice back in the day, or the original cover (funny pairing of words) by The Flying Pickets. Besides the fact that The Flying Pickets version stands out in a uniqueness challenge because of the a cappella delivery, it was also their “one hit” moment in the sun. Good pop songs can be hard to come by and have short shelf lives but this one has stayed fresh for a long time.
