Who sings this cover of Wild Horses?



Can you Interferers please help out with a definitive answer? Who is this?

Here's what people are saying: YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

The arguments going every which way are kinda funny to read through, but now I just want to label my mp3 once and for all.

TIA if you can help. It's a beautiful cover, by the way.

Also, did anyone ever find out who performed that mysterious U2-ish song? It was posted on here a while back..

I don't consider myself an expert on Jewel, but that sure as hell don't sound like her voice while she's talking. Jewel's got a bit more of a twang.

The other people on YouTube seem to think it's Chantal Kreviazuk, but I'm not familiar with her work. She's fucking HOT, though.

Regardless, the version by The Sundays is better.

Besides the Stones' version, of course.

Elvis Costello and Lucinda Williams did a lovely version of it a few years ago on that TV show Crossroads. I have an mp3 of it somewhere.

Never really cared for the Stones version all that much...

I mean I'm glad they wrote, it's a great song, but it needed someone like the lead singer of The Sundays singing it.

^^ Cool I'll have to have a look around for that version as well.

And yeah The Sundays' version is one of the best (if not the best) cover versions of any song that I've heard. First heard it during some movie years ago.

So does anyone know who sings that other version, which I also really like? Holly McNarland was another name that was mentioned. Anyone?

I prefer the Stones version to that Sundays version and any others I've heard.

It's all about Mick! He wrote the damn song. He knew how it needed to be sung. And he nailed it some 35+ years ago.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that movie may have been entitled Fear. The song is featured in the scene where Marky Mark Whalberg is fingering Reese Witherspoon while they're on a rollercoaster.
