Single Cover Diva-Off: Cheryl Cole’s “The Flood” Vs. Take That’s “The Flood”

British pop songbird (and possible X Factor judge?) Cheryl Cole looks stunning on the cover art of her new song, “The Flood”, keeping the focus on her profile and her mane of hair instead of the atrocious footwear on her Messy Little Raindrops album cover. Vast improvement, this is.

Cole recently performed the song at the Royal Variety Performance gala in England, right after Take That performed their new song, “The Flood”. We’re on the fence whose similarly-named track we prefer more — so let’s judge both singles on their sleeves!

Here’s Take That’s single sleeve for “The Flood”:

Minimalist. Abstract. Mostly yellow. Very arty — we can see this hanging on the wall in a doctor’s waiting room somewhere — but we enjoy looking at Cheryl’s pretty, concerned face more than a few blotches of color. Now, if Robbie Williams’ charming face was Photoshopped onto Take That’s cover, that’d be another story…

Which visual interpretation of “The Flood” do you like more? And which song is more your cup of tea? Tell us in the comments!
