How about this one for the Beatles and Stones
Love is Strong vs Free As a Bird
You Got Me Rocking vs. Real Love
Never liked both "Free" & "Real". I pick the Stones.
When Free as a Bird and Real Love were released, it was just a treat to have "new" Beatles songs. Over 20 years after the novelty has worn off, I think both hold up surprisingly well.
Agree. Both are solid songs. However, when in certain moods, I do prefer the original home demo versions of those songs. There is something about the simplicity of them which actually enhances them.
