Though Coldplay seems to have moved to the category of "Bands that have become way too popular that it's not cool to like them anymore", you can't deny that Chris Martin penned some seriously great songs. And 'The Scientist' is one of those wistful piano ballads everyone knows. Female singers love covering it, too. Avril and Natasha have performed it live, but Johnette Napolitano's version is the proper studio one, and it's on her latest album recently released this year. Hope you enjoy them all.

Whose cover version is your fave? Are there more covers of 'The Scientist' floating around the web that I'm not aware of? Feel free to drop a comment and let me know. :-)
