Ouch!!! Leonard's version wins out hands down. Go stand in the corner for the next fortnight please until you come to your senses.

I'll take over the watch when you need a rest, BOAW, to make sure he doesn't try to step out of it 'til the fortnight's over. [Axel... are you okay :shock: ?]

OK, this is getting interesting. Lets see what people really think. I have started a Poll in the Cover Versions and Soundtracks section to see which version people prefer and why. Please cast your vote and mention why you prefer one above the other. Who know's, I may be converted yet.

It's all in the name of fun I might add, although it would be interesting to hear what people think, so get voting!
