8 September 2014, 00:00
'Make You Feel My Love’ has been recorded by lots of performers. But do you prefer Bob Dylan's or Adele's version? Have your say!
"When the rain is blowin' in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love."
Bob Dylan Versus Adele
Make You Feel My Love - Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan’s version of ‘Make You Feel My Love’ appears on his 1997 album Time Out Of Mind.
Interestingly, it was first recorded and released by Billy Joel, under the title ‘To Make You Feel My Love’, before Dylan's version appeared later that same year.
Make You Feel My Love - Adele
Adele’s cover of ‘Make You Feel My Love’ features on her multi-award winning debut album, 19. Speaking about her decision to cover it, Adele said: “The lyrics are just amazing, and summed up exactly what I'd been trying to say in my songs. It's about regretting not being with someone, and it's beautiful. It's weird that my favorite song on my album is a cover, but I couldn't not put it on there."
Released in 2008, this version reached number 26 on the UK Singles Chart.
The song has been covered by a number of other performers including Garth Brooks and Bryan Ferry.
