One (Mary J Blige & U2) MMS

2006

Even better than the original? I’ll be honest, when I first came across this I thought “Sacrilege! How could you possibly compare to the original?!” and the opening just felt WRONG. However, with hindsight, it just felt weird because it’s so different to Bono’s interpretation.

I still love the original, but Mary J Blige’s towering rendition is something else entirely, sending a shiver down my spine every time at 2 min 41 seconds in…

This is up there with Space Cowboy as one of the best remixes of all time 😉
