Very good cover. Actually, I prefer this cover over U2's one. Only beef I have is that this cover should have played the entire "solo" of the song for me to sing the opera bit.

Not bad actually.  Not as good as U2..but certainly not a bad effort.

I really like George Michael's voice, but this did not suit him well in my opinion.

Reminds me of 'Midnight at the Oasis' for some reason.

If you're too young to get that reference, consider yourself lucky.

Its really really good.   His voice is perfect for a good cover, its suited well for the song.  But its definetely lacking without the operatic part

But you won't need no harem honey when I'm by your side  ;) :D :D :D :D  Oh that sexy Maria Muldaur ( I think that is her name!).

I couldn't pass this one up. Brought back memories.

Mr Sarajevo?

Hahaha good one :P

I discovered this last year from his 20th century song covers album, after i hadto learn his cover of My Baby Just Cares For Me. I downloaded the album, and found Miss Sarajevo on there.

Being a U2 fan I had a critical ear to his version - its decent, but he didnt sing the Pavarotti bit, and just completely skipped it... that part of the song is the highlight of the song, Haha I dont care if GM may
not be able to sing it, but Bono does, and he does it reasonably decently too. The songs a bit empty without it I think
