YAY... my favorite game. I thought this one was going to be easy. Come on, Babs... no competition. But Bernadette did an amazing job. Their voices and styling is similar.

I still go with Barbra. She looks and sounds amazing.

(I'm not stupid, I don't want the gay mafia after me)

Good choice MAC - (Not that I'm biased)

Tom Lane said...

I hate you D ;o)

This was tougher, although Bernadette was fantastic, Babs was just sensational. So Babs got my vote

Barbara!

NO question from me.

Damien said...

Tom - that's the thing, Bernadette is fantastic. But that's the point :) - put the greats up against each other - mwah

Jim - I know.... I know ;)

Of these two…Babs hands down the best!
But my favorite version is sung by Dame Judi Dench

I have to agree with Queer Heaven....no one can touch Dame Judi! My favorite by far and no comparison!

Hi Damien,

I agree with Mac in all he said. This too is one of my favorite games. I thought it would be a shoe in for me....but I found it wasn't. I love both ladies!!

Both ladies have wonderful and fantastic voices!!

First I listened to the songs without watching and then I listened again, watching. I really loved both versions but watching Barbra was something else.

For me, I was blown away by Barbra's interpretation of the song. So I go with Babs!!!

Now, if you really want to hear a great voice and a totally different interpretation of this song, just listen to Sarah Vaughan's take on it. So different but oh soooo good.

Thanks to Queer Haven for posting the way to get to Dame Judi's version. Sarah's is on the same page.

Have a good one!

Love them both, but Barbra did a better rendition. In all fairness Sondheim wasn't playing for Barbra...yikes!

Damien said...

WOW - this is the most replies to WDIB ever.

I kinda hoped it would get a reaction.

Thank you all :)

Sorry I am a little late to the party, this is my first (but there will be many more I assure you) visit to your blog. I, as with everybody else, have to give it to Barbra. I am a huge fan of Bernadette Peters, but somehow Barbra seemed to catch more of the emotion. Thanks for sharing it, and I hope I get to see and play more!
