an excellent cover of the original
****
good song
****
Not a favourite of mine, but a classic nonetheless.
******
One of my favourites of all time. While not the hip hop style the rest of the album was known for, this track was simply undeniable.
***
Meh.

#35 Triple J Hottest 100 (1996)

Awesome track.

i really really like this. one of my favourite's from the 1990's.
****
Cool cover.
***
this song is annoying
*****
A brilliant interpretation of the classic song. Still holds up well today.
****
I think I like the original more, but this has got some good style.
******
An absolute classic and deserved every bit of its success. Lauryn Hill is insane.
