Cover and Original: Make You Feel My Love

We haven't done one of these in a while.

I just came across Adele recently with some radio airplay of her song, Right as Rain. It's a decent album with a handful of good songs, but there's one that caught my ears as a Bob Dylan cover, Make You Feel My Love. I think that this version is a geninue improvement over the original. Dylan is one of those artists that is hit or miss for me. He's certainly backed by a formittable array of songs and styles, but honestly, some of his stuff just grates.

Adele here takes the song and really turns it into her own. I think her voice just fits the song better than Dylan's nasalish sound. What do you think?
