    Stan VS Anthony

    Post by Simona on Sun Dec 27, 2009 5:07 pm

    Hey guys

    I watched Carols in the domain because I knew Stan was going to be there.
    Then, I watched (on and off) Carols by Candle Light on Xmas Eve.

    Did anyone saw Anthomy Callea rendition of Amazing Grace? Dude, that boy can sing! It was all about the power of his voice, music arrangement was acoustic (?)... at some point thought was actually a capella... LOL

    It was a powerful version also because he had the backing of 3 other singers (sorry dunno the names), so he could beautifully concentrate on the higher register and just rip it...

    I know that Stan was unwell when he sang at the carols in the domain and still managed to blew me away....

    and this is the different between the two performances...

    Anthony's was powerful, had the aaaaaahhhhh factor .... was there to impress....

    Stan's was powerful but a different power that it's hard to find and comes from the heart and the soul.... he puts is heart out when he sings and he is so believable, true, honest... . he makes you feel the pain, the despair, the joy: all shine from his soul deep inside to enlight us....

    wow! so is it clear who's version do I prefer?

    I LOVE Stan. I prefer Stan's version, I believe every word that comes out of Stans mouth.
    Don't get me wrong i like Anthony Callea aswell, I thought Anthony came out really strong and then the 3 backing vocals started & I didn't like it, i didn't really listen to it then.
    In my opinion i believe that "Amazing Grace" is a song sung by 1 person. Stan's was very powerful, believable, but so was anthony's. But Stan is my Winner... lol!

    Yes, Anthony and the other singers did a great version...the guy is a professional, proud of having someone like AC in the Oz music scene!

    I think you make a good point there Renee when you say it should be sang but one person... no that should be an imposition but because of the lyrics "I once was lost..." it refers to one individual's journey... and I think Stan is the perfect person/singer to interpret those lyrics.... he went through all that and he's singing it outloud to all of us... that is the power that i was talking about.


    Don't see "Amazing Grace" like a show off kind of song... it's intimate and profound and IMO that's the way should be interepreted.... Stan does an amazing rendition of it!

    yes, he's winner for me too

    Can't tell that you're biased at all Simo hahaha!!! Razz

    I watched Anthony sing amazing grace....lovely voice, powerful.....but.....where was the heart, where was the story line, where on earth was the believability.....
    sorry but he didn't reach me in any way at all...
    I was left feeling as if something was missing....out in the cold...
    nice and professional...yes.....aimed to impress...yes...

    but...still leaves me flat...definitely a hit and miss for me!

    Amazing Grace for me can only be sung by the one and only Stan the man :sunny: .....beautifully arranged and executed with warmth, feeling, believability, mixed with pain, anger, hope, joy and a love that goes beyond human understanding......being saved.....gratitude...
    brings tears to my eyes....opens my heart to receive more....and wanting more. :flower:

    For me....I was caught by the raw emotion of Stans delivering this beautiful song...believed what he was singing....and I was sold.
    Never in my life have I ever been moved by anyone singing 'amazing grace' until Stan....
    Now I expect everyone else to deliver this song with just as much meaning...
    been spoiled, unable to accept anything of lesser quality...
    You rock Stan Walker....there is no one quite like you on this planet!!! :cheers:

    "Go Stan Go"

    Ok .
    I went back and rechecked on google and saw the clip again.
    I'd forgotten he even sang it to be honest (AC that is), so I guess it didn't hit my heartstrings.
    I still think Stan's version is best because he sang it with heart & soul (which is how it is supposed to be).
    We all know his history by now and KNOW that it was his favourite song and when he sang it he really meant it.
    Stan's version is still (in my opinion) the best version I have ever heard LOL
    unbiased of course *batts the eyelids frantically*

    I believe and love Stans version better I cannot believe Anthonys version he does sing it great but theirs no heart or soul in his preformance, where as Stans puts everything into the song it actually means something for him as Linda says we all know his past and how much this song means to stan...when he sings 'I once was lost but now I'm found" we understand where stan is coming from but Anthony ahh no offence it just makes me think his talking about his orientation LOL and I mean no offence by that Wink

    I always thought AC was an exceptional singer during idol and sure he is now. My opinion didn't change a bit after he revealed his sexual orientation. I don't give a ratz-a55 about anyone's sexual orientation actually.
    I can understand if you fancy him you might think "sheeeesh got no chance to conquer his heart".... but look at it in another prospective ... some of my gay boy-friends were more than pleased with his revelation... he IS very good looking!

    Now going back to the topic ..... AC style of singing doesn't tickle my fancy, a little too Bo-ish band?? NO OFFENCE it's just my silly taste!
    ...... so that's another reason i like Stan's version of Amazing Grace better....
    I prefer more masculine voices ... like Stan's

    I'm with you Simo....... I don't care for anyones sexual orientation.
    If Stan were gay I wouldn't change my opinion either. I prefer his "sound" to AC's. AC's semms tooooooo ummmmmmmmmmm boring? to me........ LOL Never got why everyone was so gaga over his skills.
