      I like Leona's effort and her voice is beautiful, but for me she's easily out of this.

      Though I really enjoy the atmosphere of NIN's, Cash made his version so emotional that I can't help but vote for him.

      @jpguy The masterpiece, right?

        Good idea

        The song really fit Johnny Cash the best given he was close to death when he recorded it, and he really felt the emotion. As classic as the Nine Inch Nails version is, I vote for Johnny Cash as he really made it into his own. Leona's version was good too.

        Perhaps you can remove the poll and just do all of these in this single topic? That way, it's all easy to find, much like other discussion topics that get a new song/artist after a while.

                Great game. I did not really know those tracks. However, listening to three new tracks is easy. You need to re-investigate them anyway, to make a fair comparison. And on top, I love how we cross genres in this game and get introduced to new artists with familiar songs or familiar artists.

                Johnny Cash for me.

                  I like the idea, but maybe you could put the links to originals as well?
                  I bet that many of us don't know those songs, let alone originals.

                            Kermit the Frog also sings the song.

                            Johnny Cash sings this song best. It's so emotional. One of my favorite songs and the MV is just as sad. The song is so beautifully written. The NIN's guy did a fantastic job with the song and I'm sure he's incredibly proud with what Cash did with his song.
                            can you commit to be my everything?

                                  Heard all three for the first time.

                                  Johnny Cash version is the best for me.

                                    So we've got Johnny Cash version as the best for 85% of the voters.
