I wish I could have more then one vote! I love Say, Say, Say, To Love Somebody and Wild World. I am not keen on The Long Goodbye though but maybe that's because it's one of my favourite Ronan songs and he sounds so much better singing it on his own.

I actually love this version of TLG - I agree it would sound even better if it was just Ronan, but Ronan's vocals and the music sound amazing.
I've not heard the old version in years so I guess I'll have to get that out to compare them.

It's so hard to choose. My favourite is Wild World, but i love All for Love and To Love Somebody and he makes Islands in the stream sound very sexy :D
I really didn't like this version of The Long Goodbye when i first heard it, but the more i listen to it, the more i seem to enjoy it although it would be better if it was just Ronan.

The whole album is fantastic and i have to admit i was a bit apprehensive when i heard he was doing a duets album and didn't know what to expect but i really love it  :D

Oh! You have Polls!!! (so excited! :yahoo:    )

I voted for 'Islands in the Stream' for this one. But you have to remember that really i'm just voting on the new songs, as they are the only ones i'm really listening to on this album,( cos i've listened to the other ones a million times over, and just want to hear some new stuff) . So although i've voted for IITS -  i'm not actually saying its better than say LTOMM etc.  :D

But for me - i just LOVE IITS!!  :love:  For me its scores that Perfect 10! Just think its Fab!! ...esp when its for a song which i only thought was 'Ok' before, but now i Love Ronan and The McClymonts version with a passion!

Oh dear, Janina! I think i have different musical ears on, compared to you for this album!  :(   :wink:  I LOVE the original version of just Ronan singing The Long Goodbye! I just think its a timeless song, that never looses its power whenever you hear it! .........but i'm really not keen on TLG with Lee helping Ro to sing. Initially when Lee duets on the verse, i think their voices blend quite interestingly. But its when Lee has some lines on his own - that i'm then suddenly not so keen. Lee gets a bit warbly, and maybe off 'key' a bit! lol! (ok, i'm having another little listen to this song whilst i write this, and maybe its not so bad.) So perhaps what i'm really saying is that i just prefer for just Ro to sing it solo!! It impacts more with me that way!! .....Cos as i said on another link - you just can't improve upon perfection!!  :wink:

OK well Rita  :P
I am just listening to both versions of TLG right now and I do think I prefer the new one...yes it would be even better with just Ronan singing, but musically I just think it is much more beautiful and more similar to the live version - and it shows off Ronan's voice much better.
When Lee starts singing, every time I think "wait :? that doesn't sound right" but he's OK - it is obvious that to us, he's not a patch on Ronan.

I love the old version too though and it will always be a very special song to me. <3

I love wild world, even the the original one. But there's something about this version.  It almost has a hip hop/rap feel to it.  I like Marvin Priet's little type rap, I can almost hear ronan sing 'uh uh uh' while he's bopping his head, but instead he says "baby I love you"
