If I Ain’t Got You ♥

I’m surprised that I haven’t blogged about this song yet. This was one of Alicia Keys first big songs. In my opinion, it is also her most beautiful song. Although I do love Keys’ original version, I am even more in love with Maroon 5’s cover of the song. Why? Keys’ sings this song with a beautiful jazz back ground and an amazing jazzy voice to go with it, but there is absolutely nothing better than a man with a voice like Adam Levine’s singing a jazz love song with a simple piano background. Also, I prefer that Maroon 5’s version is in a bit of a higher not signature. Either way, they are both beautifully performed songs. I will post both up here for you. Take the poll and let me know which one you prefer!!!

P.S. Don’t you just think about that “somebody” every time you listen to this song?
