I'm such a Neanderthal sometimes. Today I finally heard Beyoncé's XO and I only did so because I read John Mayer had done a cover of his own. So of course, I had to go listen to the Beyoncé track first in order to appreciate Mayer's work.
The Beyoncé version is totally sweet and once I saw the clip the power of the song really hit home. And then there's John Mayer's version which even without all the bells and whistles sounds fantastic. I guess I like them both. I think I'll just listen to them both, back to back, every time.
Take your pick. Fancy the epic Beyoncé version?
Or perhaps the down to earth John Mayer remake?>
