It is the time again when I choose a song and listen to over a hundred versions at least and then share with you some of my favourites and the reasons why I liked them. Today I wanted to share with you some spectacular versions of a song I think we all adore, ” The ring of fire”
In no particular order….
I enjoyed this version because who does not like a good acapella version of any song? But also, it wasn’t just a classic version of the song done acapella style, it had a twist.
I loved this artists version because her voice had this slight twang to it occasionally but yet most of the song was this gentle, softer version.
This version is actually a guy playing a accordion, which I found many versions with accordions but his was my favourite out of them.
If you have not heard Janet Devlin sing then you do not know how her Irish-tinted voice is so enchanting. I adore this cover. Her voice and the ukulele melt so perfectly together for a lighter version of the song.
Because the list would not be complete without the legend himself singing his song.
This version is a more traditional country version performed by the amazing Sheryl Crow.
Adam’s voice in this version is just so seductive, rocker style and yet has got the same effect as the orginal but just goes about it a different way, although I think this version clasps onto the wild and gripping effects of love very well.
I think overall this cover isn’t that outstanding to me, but the harmonies and great and the family is really talented and the little boy with the tambourine is on point so it is definitely a cover to listen to.
A very classic version but this guy is very coordinated and a wonderful street musician.
Classic deep voice version!
An unique sounding version of the song that I would not put at the top of my list but think is worth a listen.
Another interesting ukelele version.
Another great version by two talented people.
I adore the subdued, breathy feel to this version yet it still has the edge of the original song but it is almost like the pain of ” burning” is felt so much in his voice.
I love a good reggae version of any song.
Thank you for reading and listening to these versions as well. I am curious which numbers did you like the most? And are there any versions you have heard that didn’t make the list. Feel free to share the link in the comments for any versions you want me to check out.
