Welcome to the latest installment of the Cover-Song Showcase Showdown, in which we present you with several versions a well-known classic, and you decide which one you like best. Today’s
victim candidate: Mr. Mister’s apparently-cooler-than-we-thought 1985 hit “Broken Wings,” which appears on Clay Aiken’s recent A Thousand Different Ways, and also serves as the background for freestyle rap track from Joe Budden (thanks to Nah Right for the Budden track).
So take a listen to both covers, and let us know which one makes you want to learn to fly again, and to learn to live so free:
Clay Aiken – Broken Wings [MP3, link expired]
Joe Budden – Broken Wings Freestyle [MP3, link expired]
(Editor’s Note: Welcome, Claymates! Can we call you “Claymates”? Is that too informal? Anyway, If you’re interested in reading more about your favorite Tobey Maguire look-alike, click here.)
