America - Best version?

Simon and Garfunkel's original? -




Or First Aid Kit's cover? -




They sound pretty much the same, but which one is the best version of this beautiful song from the film Almost Famous?

  • FAK for me
  • Got to be S&G for me.
  • Pat Metheny and Anna Maria Jopek

    Brilliant song. Simon & Garfunkel, but First Aid Kit's version is, as always, beautiful. And their video is very cool as well.
  • Thought you meant our national anthem
  • Original....the girls were a bit off key and Im not keen on them both singing together.....they sound better on solos





  • You've missed the best version (at least for old prog rock fans like me!)

    This was one of my favourite songs at the time, so S & G from here.
    Having had a proper listen now to the FAK one, that certainly has its moments, but for some songs it's the version that you grow up with that always hooks you.

    That's a relief. There are more than two versions. I thought I was going to be obliged to take @i_b_b_o_r_g to task on the use of best in the thread title. Now I don't have to.

    This.
  • I like First Aid Kit a lot but their version does not beat the original
