Song #35 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “No More I Love Yous”, originally by The Lover Speaks and covered by Annie Lennox. Here’s the original:
I’m familiar with the song because we have the Annie Lennox CD that contains the featured cover version, but that’s the only version of the song I’d heard before now. It’s pretty standard 80s stuff, if you ask me. Here’s Annie Lennox:
I have no idea what’s up with those Mickey Mouse ears, but she’s Annie Lennox and I’m not, so what do I know. I prefer her voice to the other singer’s, and I agree with the Popdose writer that the backup vocals are better in this version, too. A clear win for the cover. What do you think?
