Am I the only one who thinks Gary Jules version is better? It seemed less... forced.

Its not lacking emotion, it just has an emotion you fail to recognize...

This is horrible. Just sung with a bunch of flair and a complete lack of emotion

Love the emotion. It is beautiful.

I prefer Adam Lambert's cover version because it has a more ethereal appeal. I do want Alex's hair, however.

melovepie - Tears For Fears did this in the '80's. Roland Orzabel, of the band, wrote it.

I agree with punk rock zombie. Waste of a remake, nothing valuable added. I can't believe her biography called her "original"

Still prefer the TFF original. How profound and touching is this song that so many have felt moved to remake?

PunkRockZomb i e , Alex Parks is a woman. You would have answered your own question if you bothered to read the artist's biographies. It states clearly about Alex: While on the show (Fame Academy), she earned rave reviews from the judges for her husky-voiced , emotional renditions of songs.
