Ok song, i haven't heard the original before so i can't compare them.

Firstly, everyone needs to hear the original. It's amazing! Secondly, that amazingness is what carries me through this cover. It's not badly sung, but I can't get used to it. And I don't like her voice at times. Still, it's a nice effort and anything that brings this awesome track more attention is welcome. Actually, maybe not anything.

Marginally better than the original, but both songs are average.
**
The original is a dull song that I irrationally dislike. This has the added bonus of being actually audible, but then immediately loses that bonus by amplifying the irritating "ma ma my" lyric.
****
Nice but I think I just prefer the original.
*****
I find this to be lovely and harmless.

EDIT: After becoming a hit in New Zealand, I began to enjoy it a bit more. Great track to belt out while driving.

Originally a mediocre cover in 2011 but now is this massive new Foster The People JJJ commercial hit!

The song has in general never did anything for me and this is no exception but does help it's appeal.

gutes cover von birdy!!

besser als das Original...wunderschön!
**
This one's pretty good, but Bon Iver's was better I believe. It wouldn't feel right if this becomes a big hit, and Bon Iver's did not. Well, hopefully Bon Iver will royalties from this at least. 3.5*.

Still quite better than some of the stuff we have in the top 10 right now (Far East Movement, Taylor Swift etc.)

EDIT: Don't like it much anymore, not that I ever loved it in the first place. I'm sick of people calling this Birdy's song, when it's really Bon Iver who should be getting all the plaudits. 3.5* -> 2*.

Haven't heard the original, but I really like this! Will be cool to see this be (hopefully) a hit!
*****
I call bull.... You can't be 15 (at time of recording) and be THAT good!
****
Turns the original into more of a ballad sounding tune. A very nice track, just as good as People Help The People!

kinda nice
***
Slightly better than the original, but not Top 10 worthy in my opinion. This lacks energy, and would only be appealing if it was nostalgic to some personal experience or something. 2.5*

EDIT: Finally enjoying this a little now. 3.3*

I love this cover. I wasn't familiar with the original Bon Iver version before this, and I think Birdy's version is better.
****
Good, and this sounds like something I could really like. I should check out the original.
***
Its ok. The chorus is good but the rest is boring. 2.5
*****
This is beautiful!
***
It's not a song that I would listen too again and again but her voice is good though.
***
Not really that great.
*****
its a good song but yeah it became famous due to the x factor (bella ferraro did this version except the bon iver version) but Birdy is incredible to be that good at a young age!

Edit: Awesome song now. She's 16 and shes got actual talent. 5*

A lovely voice, but the song in overall is irritating.
***
Moderate, but it can get boring depending on the mood you are in.
****
Very sweet cover; she has a nice voice.
****
Good song. I haven't heard the original so I can't compare them. Was surprised to see it become a hit

4 stars
****
not bad, but a pretty typical way to cover a song
***
Decent but slightly draining track to listen to.
***
eek
*****
Great cover, though it did become annoying after a while. I prefer "People Help the People", but not by much.
