188Power Of Love - Celine Dion (Jennifer Rush)

I've always heard "The Power Of Love" played on the radio before and I really didn't like the voice because the singer's voice was shrill. When I've learned that Celine sung this song too, I decided to know her version 'cos even if DJ's mistakenly name the singer of the song as Celine, I know that it wasn't her 'cos the voice wasn't beautiful. And when I heard a better version of this song, I immediately recognized Celine's voice. And I was right 'cos when i finally got her "The Colour Of My Love" album, I knew that her own version was the best one. The Power Of Love has also become a hit especially that Celine also sung a high note at one part of the song. Great lyrics. - RLAAMJR

Haven't heard Mariah Carey's version so can't really compare but Jennifer Rush was brilliant.

A british singer did a cover of this song for a advert recently and it's better than both of these

189Umbrella - All Time Low (Rihanna)

Punk goes Crunk, All time low are fantastic in adapting pop songs into my favourite form of music, Pop-Punk, you should also check out their version of Alejandro
