During my teen years I heard this song and I thought it couldn't get any better. The original was done by Procol Harum (youtu.be/Mb3iPP-tHdA). Then I heard Annie Lennox sing this song and thought to myself: 'This is way better!' Do you have a favorite song performed by Annie Lennox?

@JudyEv - So true. That's why I'm glad they came up with "throwback". It gives me an excuse to go find old songs that throw me back to a more innocent time in my childhood (or that make it obvious to other people how old I am!)

I loved this song, I have the original vinyl of the Procol Harum, as I have an Italian version from an Italian group. I have listened to this one remastered. Well, the music is a matter of taste, I will continue to listen my beloved Procol Harum.

Definitely a matter of taste and also devotion. I'm an Annie Lennox loyalist.

@cmoneyspinner I remember her more as part of the Eurythmics, I liked Sweet Dreams and I think I would not like this song sang by any other. This is the same for Whiter Shade of Pale and I think also The Sound of Silence.

The original version of "A Whiter Shade of Pale" is on my 100 favorites list. Having said that, I love Annie's version. There's such a fine line to walk when someone does a cover of a very well-known song, and she walked that line very gracefully. It's her own take on it without being a "carbon copy," and yet it's not such a 180-degree turn from the original that you say "yuck." Well done, Annie!

I was upset when the Eurythmics broke up but glad Annie Lennox kept on singing.
