Default It's a brand new kind of competition!!!

Hello readers!!!

Welcome to the "Worst Cover Version Of A Classic Song" competition!!!

If you can bear to do so, watch/listen to the two YouTube versions of the Elton John classic "Rocket Man"..............

then vote for the worst.

Is it...........?

EITHER
(a) William Shatner turning it into a 'talkie'............

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvQwXOCKNLY

OR
(b) Kate Bush turning it into a singalong reggae ditty with Irish overtones..............

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6g8v2RNLHr0

You be the judge................
