    In terms of musical rendition, the first one certainly. The video associated with the second choice provides an entirely new perspective on " valley".

    Continuing with the current theme:

    You see, I couldn't watch your video...the signal must have gotten scrambled crossing the Sabine.

    How about "My Old Flame"?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jW6BgNK-OAU ...did you catch the opening line?..."Please sing, the fun's all over if you go to bed"

    or

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D2A32KUTq0 ....at least stay with it long enough to hear Peter Lorre at 1:30

    .
    Bit of very belated trivia: That's not Peter Lorre, but rather legendary voice artist Paul Frees doing a highly exaggerated impersonation (which Lorre said he enjoyed very much). It was so popular that when Lorre was asked to do it himself during a live radio performance, he had to learn to do Frees' version of his own voice.

    I'll thank you sir to never correct me again. One of the very pillars of my youthful foundation has been fractured, the damage is irreparable. I was somewhere around five years old when my father began spoon feeding me the likes of Spike Jones, Arthur Lyman, Bob Wills, et al and for all this time I would have gone to my grave convinced it was Peter Lorre. (Actually, I believe it was the mischievous older brother who convinced me it was Lorre.)
    All I had to do was pull the album and flip it over...







    So what next Mr. Calidore, I suppose you'll tell me that Tom Fogerty Is singing "There's a bad moon on the rise" not "...bathroom on the right"?
    Or when I back mask "Stairway to Heaven" I'll hear "drol si natas"?

    The Chris de Burgh video is nice though; it brought back fond memories of Koln (imagine two dots above the "o", not sure how to do that on the iPad )

    Half full, man, half full. Had it actually been Lorre, we wouldn't have had a great story about an actor having to learn how to do a parody of his own voice. Also, Paul Frees is awesome in general.

    Of course not, because that's John singing. Tom Fogerty was on rhythm guitar.
