A fantastic cover version. I know some people aren't exactly enamoured by Snow Patrol, but I do think that this is a brilliant rendition.

See what you think

Were you? i really wasn't Razz maybe if i'd heard them doing it first, then i'd've liked it, but, it just doesn't compete with the original.

I loved his passion for this song-reminded me of Reindeer Section (Gary Lightbody side project)

It's nice but I don't think Gary doesn't has the passionate singing voice that Guy has, so it doesn't sound quite right.

It's always great to see that there are more well-known bands appreciating Elbow. I'd like to hear a Massive Attack version of one of their songs or possibly have Editors cover Elbow, because it'd be interesting to hear their songs in a different way.

Thanks for that. Not a patch on the original but very interesting to hear a different version. I quite enjoyed that.

I don't dislike Snow Patrol, but it occured to me a couple of years ago that many of their songs are actually not much more than simple three - sometimes even two- chord-bashes, wrapped up in fancy arrangements.
I can't help but think that they chose 'One Day' to cover because it wouldn't stretch their limitations too much! It would have been much more interesting to have seen them tackle something more challenging.

It's interesting how this cover has so many reactions.

I've yet to hear a singer these days with a better voice than Guy Garvey, so cudos to Gary and Snow Patrol for doing a cover, I would never have dared Wink

Imagine hearing your song being covered within a year of recording it... what an honour! I think it's a good stab at it. Smile
