You guys are on crack. That was actually pretty damn good. That massive choir was cool and that girl belted it out really well I thought. It's alot better than Mary J Blige doing One, and it's most definately not the worst U2 cover ever. Not even close.

Its transposed up a step and a half making the high note a D... I think her voice is annoying during the chorus but it sounds fine during the verses.

the huge choir is also really cool.

Its definately not the worst, but I think her voice is damn annoying during the chorus.

It also loses points for the cheesy musicians.

I agree.

I've seen a lot worse U2 covers.

It may not be the worst U2 cover ever, but it still sounds like a dog's arse.

I love the fact that it's Bono's Pride (In The Name Of Love). The verse isn't that bad but I think it gets the award for worst chorus of a U2 cover.

Tha's the way alot(most) of U2's writing credits are though. It's even printed that way on their albums.

Music: U2
Words: Bono

The instrumentation is 'WHACK'...the chorus vocal however is pretty cool...still incredibly 'cheesy' though.

edit - wait a minute what the fuck? When the choir came in I thought 'Haha, wouldn't it be funny if all those guys at the back were the cho-....oh.'

One of the best U2 covers I've ever heard. By far.

If you'd like to name a better one, I'd like to hear it.

Eh....REM covering One!

Stop listening to 'THE HYPE' around Johnny Cash's One. It's nothing special.

I don't listen to the hype surrounding his version of one. I listen to his version of One. Because it is something special.

Eh, the first one wasn't too bad...Clay Aiken's makes me want to cleanse myself with the real version.

I thought Cash's version of One was pretty good. It was a little bland though and I didn't really like the whole country-ish rhythm although I know it's his style. I kinda miss the full band sound of the original. Acoustic/piano didn't do it for me, but Cash always sounds like he's singing something important, so it was nice.

I love the Cash version of One, but then again, he is a master of covering songs... just look at Hurt and Personal Jesus.

The Clay version of Streets...
