    Perhaps equals but can't suggest edges. Influenced by seeing George doing it live with Buddy Leach on saxophone in 2013.

    Written in 1962 by Marvin Gaye and a couple of other blokes I can’t remember the names of, a fella who used to be in a band called The Equals grabbed hold of the song nearly two decades later and made quite the hit of it.

    After Cash's cover of Hurt this is my second favourite ever. Opened their set at Heaton Park with this a few weeks ago and it went down a storm.

    I like AW, but this is just a singalong karaoke version. Cover versions should offer something different....like those below.

    Tom Jones & the Cardigans - Burning Down the House
    Cash - Hurt - Best cover ever?
    Futureheads - Hounds of Love
    I can see clearly now - Hothouse Flowers

    Possibly controversial as if I am honest I am not sure this is better than the original but I really like this version

    I prefer the cover on this one because Celine Dion's voice falls into my category of singers that should never be heard in a dentist's waiting room. Only aware of it because I was intrigued by the title.

    Yeah, likely. Elbow did a very clever version of WCH but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. I think it was on a compilation CD that came free with a magazine about three million years ago

    Has it got a chance in Top Ten Songs?

    No. My weapon of choice by Elbow would be Newborn, which is probably my favourite track in the whole world and beyond
