Poll - Best Cover Version of "Go All The Way"


Craig Benfer

Recommended Posts

My vote is for number 3.  Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs. It probably won't get the most votes. But there is something very fresh and intriguing about that version with a female voice. Just something totally different. I love the vocal blend as well. Thanks for starting this Craig. I enjoyed listening to all of these versions.

Great thread, Craig. 

Well, let's see. Trip Shakespeare gets a D. Good spirit, but they're in too much of a rush, and the opening "ha!' and "oh-yeahs" fall flat. David Bryce gets a C+ from me — like it but it's just above average. I give The Killers a solid B — superb energy... you can tell this is a song they idolize. 

But... for me, the winner is the Sweet/Hoffs reading. Something about having a woman sing this song is a so appealing —and when it's Susanna Hoffs, one of my five or so favorite female pop singers, even better. Matthew Sweet knows what he's doing, too. So they get an A.
