Yes, you could feel Bonnie's words. Sheryl was singing from her head and not really connecting to the lyrics. When they sang together it was a tad messy.

Im glad you liked it.

It looked to me like Bonnie was wearing an outfit designed by Margi Kent - whose designs Christine wore on stage for many years.

Christine and Bonnie knew each other for many years, but I wonder if they were good friends. Theyre white women with deep blues roots and incredible pop sensibilities. That would have been an amazing side-project collaboration.

Wow, I felt that.

Bonnie sounded fantastic. I agree Sheryl seemed less connected (emotionally) to the song. Maybe she was concentrating on the piano parts. The two women did not synch well when they sang together, but Bonnie's "like never before" at the end gutted me.

I normally would say drums are superfluous on this song, and they are, but I was glad to see Mick up there beating a heartbeat through the performance. And finally, seeing Christine's lovely fact smiling down on them--well, I am really feeling this now. I'm about to cry. Seriously.

Mick's heartbeat drum is the best part of this performance. It's hard for me to listen to anyone other than Christine sing this song. Sheryl and Bonnie did a capable rendition, and I feel that they respected the song, but they're just not Christine.

I agree. But I would have been happy with just Bonnie. Sheryl doesn't have the right voice for this song.

Agree. Bonnie would have been perfect.

I agree. Just Bonnie would have been better. One of the reasons I think this is that, like Christine, Bonnie was a pioneering female musician/singer/songwriter who came out of a blues background. They really had a lot in common.

And neither were flashy or conceited. They just saw themselves as one of the guys. Though their songs are distinctly from a woman's perspective.

Yes, neither of them seem to have cared much about being a celebrity, crafting a persona for themselves, or making headlines for non-music-related gossip. They achieved legendary status simply by being the best at what they did, and stayed humble about it because they knew their work spoke for itself.

The only way it could have been better is if Bonnie sang the entire song and Steve Winwood had played piano.
