Same song performed by different singer of different sex. In your opinion, who sung better?

To be more objective and professional, I put on headphones to judge, just like those china singing contest judges :lol:

听海
Definitely Ah Mei for me. 张学友 as usual sang v.well, and it's a live rendition! But still lose to Ah Mei (recorded , polished version thou).

可惜不是你
Not familiar with this song.
Prefer the guy's version. Fish Leong's sweet vocals I feel cannot emote as well as this guy.

1st one - 張學友 (i like his rendition cos he can sing 聽海 without straining his vocals)
2nd one - 曹軒賓 (i dun like Fish Leong's saccharine rendition。The guy handled the 转音well)

I like jacky cheung's version of 听海...much better than a mei as she tends to be breathless.

Exactly. Jacky's voice has 磁性。

阿妹 was like stretching her lungs out in the chorus.

sometimes the original singer may not be able to do a good job.
listened to A Mei and Jacky Cheung's versions several times before downloading and converting to mp3...a mei's 听海 gives me a headache while jacky's voice is very solid. this includes 原来你什么都不想要。
