I don't really like the song, but now that refrain is stuck in my head...

You had better move Janis above Leona Lewis, ummm, now:D  And Billie to the very top.  In fact, the top three should read Billie, Janis, Louis.  And I love Louis, but I'm being real here - that's Billie's song.  Everything else was basically a repeat until Janis' version.

Maybe I need to find a better version of Billie...because that one just didn't do it for me.  Lol the Janis version is great, but doesn't beat Ella and Louis.  As for Leona...she did have too many runs, so maybe Janis should be above her.  Hmmm.

You're probably just not used to the arrangement - her vocals and phrasing are still really rich.
