DYLAN COVERS # 167 Garth Brooks/Mell Gibson - To Make You Feel My love

And the whole world is on your case

GARTH BROOKS - To Make You feel My Love (1998)

Here are two covers of the great Adele song To Make You feel My Love. Well that is how the songs seems to be introduced these days. Many many people seem to think the song is written by Adele and it is hers.  The song has become an X-Factor staple and maybe it is an attempt at some sort of credibility, but what do I  know.

To me the song is taylor made for Sid Vicious and I think he would have done a perfect version.

The two versions I have chosen, I will not comment on too much because they may give a lot of pleasure to some folks and that is not a bad thing. It also spreads the gospel and that is good too.

Garth Brooks and Mel Gibson (not the Aussie actor),  for fuck sake, what are Dylan Covers coming to. Please for give me but I could not resist it.(and sorry about the language) But we do try to cover all types of artists here.

Brooksy's version can be found on the album Garth Brooks The Ultimate Hits (2014). It was originally recorded in 1998 and released as a CD single. Garth was nominated for a Grammy for best vocal performance and Bob got the nomination for best Country song.  There you go, I did not know that.

Braveheart's is on the album Weakness in a Man (2007). Quick, close your ears I think he is trying to imitate Elvis.

A great man once said that 'You can't unring a bell' and unfortunately you can't unhear what you've heard either. For one awful moment I thought it was going to be THE Mel Gibson massacring Bob's ballad, but surely he couldn't do any worse than THIS Mel! And as for Garth....there are no words.
I actually like Adele's version, it has a bit of gumption about it, but after exposure to these two covers, I have no desire to hear the song sung by anyone for a very long time.

TS - I have to agree Adele's version is pretty good but these two are just hideous....well spotted re it is not the Aussie actor...I have to admit I thought it was...he looks sort of like him..I have made a little amendment to the post to clarify

Garth has a lifetime pass from me because of Papa Loved Mama.
Kills me every time.

Let's get down to brass tacks - both fucking horrible. The only redeeming factor in Mel's version is just trying to imagine a wild night out at the pub with a third rate Elvis impersonator. Having said that, isn't the song third rate anyway? Bob should have left it off 'Time Out Of Mind' and the fact that it's so bloody popular just tells you all you need to know about the taste of the average punter. Adele's version is equally vile. Who IS this Mel Gibson?
