Tell us which songs you think the original is the best version, and which songs have better remakes.

First up: Only God Knows Why
ORIGINAL by Kid Rock
REMAKE by DAC

Tell me which one you like best, and then post a new song if you want.

I like the original version best ... but I enjoy the remake. Just reread OP's post. I was talking about my own songs ...sorry. Don't care about previous poster's songs either way.
