UH... and I can do it better

[yes, I'm aware I just quoted Avril Lavigne]

Anyways... the other day I was having a conversation about covers of Rihanna's "Umbrella." I decided to check out as many songs as I could and after finding a few versions, I ordered them from best to worst.

Check 'em out.

Hip/Hop:
1. Chris Brown - "Cinderella"
2. Jay Z

Rock
1. Vanilla Sky [still the best, even with Italian accents.]
2. All Time Low
3. McFly

Acoustic
1. Standard of Living [love the addition of the piano]
2. Plain White T's [good vocals]
3. Biffy Clyro
4. Mandy Moore [horrible.]

Battle of the Videos:
The first is Rihanna's, the second is Vanilla Sky's.
[I pick VS, post your choice in the comments section]

wow. great that the fact that there's some slight homoeroticism in the video/possibly gay band members makes you all judge them differently. pretty mature!

in any case, Amy (posting, not commenting), i think you know which one i prefer, even though i'd contest that Rihanna is pretty fabulous herself... ;)

seriously, though, great post! i feel her version has been overplayed; it's great to hear others.
