Csprof had a great idea for the question of the week. The question is regarding Matt's and Anna's two versions of "You Don't Know Me". Our hope is that by discussing the two songs more we will create more buzz which will then hopefully generate more sales. So give us your best sales pitch!


Which version of "You Don't Know Me" do you prefer the original release or the unplugged version and why?

Well, I guess I should answer. Smile I've always loved the original. I thought it showcased Matt's falsetto, and he and Anna just had a terrific chemistry. I prefer Matt's originals because they are more who he is, but I like that he can pull off this jazz-pop sound.

The first time I heard the unplugged version, I thought it was too sleepy. Very slow, very muted voices. But this version is very steamy, and both of them, but especially Matt, created a more jazzy interpretation of the song. Now I think I prefer the Unplugged version.

I love both versions equally. The original version is very nice, and is probably best for radio release. I think I was the first person to discover the unplugged version. I went on iTunes shortly after midnight because I saw Anna's tweet about the album being released. I tweeted about it from MattsFTLs and about two minutes later, Matt tweeted it. I played the preview of the Unplugged version and loved it IMMEDIATELY. To me, it's very sexy. Matt does a really good job at playing with his riffs and falsetto. It's definitely gotten a lot of plays from me Smile

So happy I could buy the unplugged version here! Fun to hear another version of that song! I guess I´ll keep on loving the official version for it´s crystal clearness,elegance,and how it builds up. The more I listen to the unplugged version the more I like it. Love the less dramatic, lazy feeling, it is so cool!
I think it is my favorite right now.

Yay can't wait Cranberry!


Well I spent time listening to the unplugged version today and I have to say I think I like this version more. It is just so tender and lovely. The original version is more powerful vocally but the unplugged version's more laid back tender feel gives the song a more vulnerable and initimate quality to it that I find very pleasing. I have always been in love with Matt's soulful, smoky, smooth as butter voice and in the unplugged version this voice is used throughout the whole song!!


I wonder if it's Matt playing the piano?

I think it is. It sounds very much like his style.

I wondered this too, and there is a part of the piano interlude and ending that made me think it was him (the trill). It would be smart of whoever conceived this unplugged version to have Matt play. I bet if someone asks Matt on twitter whether it was him he would answer.

I like both the original and unplugged version but, the original just a little bit more. Their voices just soar in the original version and I love the jazzy music with the orchestration.
