Forever Young: Who Sang It Best? genre: Tuned Out & Video-Philes

The song Forever Young has always been one of my favorite songs...and one that has been covered by countless artists. The following three clips are three memorable performances of the song...Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Patti Labelle.

Let me know which one is your favorite and feel free to suggest other renditions and I'll see if I can hunt them down and post them here.

P.S. I chose this particular Patti Labelle version despite the fact that it was recorded live and she sings the last few bars of the song sans microphone. Her performance is just too good to overrule the recording quality.

As much as I like Dylan, I think Patti's was the best of the three.

Wow...Patti can put so much soul body and mind into a song! I must say i have NEVER seen any other song in all my life sung with so much feeling. She puts EVERYTHING INTO IT! I have to agree with you, Patti rules.
