I like this version but it's a bit sad and It could use more music
couldn't have said it better @Holly-HawK (;If everyone else zigs-I'll zag;)
by the way, your user name is great!
I'm really digging this version, breathes new life into the song! Don't get your panties all in a bunch just b/c someone does a cover of a song. Hearing a different version may lead someone to wish to hear the original version that has never heard it before & who otherwise might never have heard of it. Plus, it's a huge compliment to a band when another band covers their song. A different version might speak to someone more, open their eyes & cause them to feel the deeper meaning of a song.
I like this version, it sounds like how one might recount the story at older age; when melancholy replaces despair.

Not a good cover of this song. Lacks so much of the passion that BVA put into writing it.... Listen to any version by the original artist.

Original is better. This isn't bad... Just no emotion
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now that you've started reading dont stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes and your lovers name will come up on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
To Kalani, The Verve Pipe are the original singers of this song. Hopefully you come back and see this :)
This is beautiful... why have I never heard this? Added to my station seeds.
well, i now know what channel to go to to make myself cry...
It's so sad.....yet it's so beautiful. <3
There's another version? I've heard this like 5 times over and I'm still in love with it. Someone tell me the other version plea see.
honestly don't really like this version. I prefer the original.

I actually like the translation. The original is better, of course, but this is kind of cool, and if I heard it this way first, I would have still liked it.
NOOOO,
he doesn't sound bad but the original is much better hands down
One of my all time favorite songs, I was horrified when I heard this version. Terrible.
Damn.. My fav song
I was a Freshman in college when this came out and was in a destructive relationship . I love this song because it reminds me the love/hate relationship I had with my bf at the time. But I like the Verve Pipe's version.
timeless

I love it! What's it about though, like I know the basic but what is the underlying message?
UHHH The Verve Pipe released The Freshman in 96, a whole year before anyone had any idea who Creed was...so to say that it was Creed inspired is not accurate.
Agreed, MUCH better than the original. A more honest take without the Creed- inspired posing. Funny how a producer can ruin a song huh?
Beautiful. This is a really great cover; better than the original, in my opinion. Brings tears to my eyes.

Whether you like this version or the original better, you have to give him credit for one thing---maki n g it his own. A good cover is a different take (emotionally , musically) on a song. Otherwise, it might as well be the original.

it's the same song, but different singer

Is this The Freshman by the Vervepipe or a different band?
Beautiful cover, love it!
I think it's more haunting than the original..gr e a t job.
Great cover to a great song, nice job by Jay to put in his own style to it, too.
Like both versions.
This song rules, this is a terrible cover. I hope I never hear it again.

I love this version!
nice
I love this song, both versions.
I absolutely adore this version!
nanak4
i agree...the cover is nice. but that's just it--nice. there's no emotion.
in retrospect, freshmen are very likely to do rash things.
But I do like the piano..
It was a great song before him, and he made it a little too girly. Sorry, just not my flavor of mocha.
bhill33
Nah. He should have left this one alone.
This is Great Cover of a Great Song So happy to hear it when it came on the Radio. !!!

I love this song. The Verve Pipe does do it very well, too, but I kind of like this version more.

Rioja1991, I'm curious to which "#1 hit" you're referring to, the original from "I've suffered a head injury" or the one from the Villians LP that they commercializ e d to sell records? Sometimes less is more. This version suits me just fine!
rioja1992
Not a bad version, but way too simplistic and does not capture the sheer emotion and power of the Verve Pipe's #1 hit version. This guy sounds like he is reading it off the sheet music with his mind elsewhere.
