For money :thinking:
Maybe. But I feel like although the overproduced version would do better in the chart-- surely they could see that the untampered version sounded better? Success vs. music itself-- I'd chose the music.

I like the acoustic version, but as to why choose the "overproduced" version, I actually like that version better, love the power of that version and that version goes better with rihanna's voice, the tempo of the song and with the lyrics imo and I think it fits better in the story on the album, especially because it's between two very quiet songs.
So about the discussion of them choosing money over music, it IS a possibility that they actually thought the "overproduced" version is better or at least fits better on the album in this way.

It makes me remember the show at Grammy Awards. But this is better. Love it. :)

I think this 'acoustic' version is also very 'produced'. The vocals are exactly the same as the album version.
I sort of like it though. :shrug:

The live version from Rock im Park is still the best.
I can't believe this was a year ago :stunned:
Miller records everything so why they don't give us the live version without Rihanna?

EDIT: The acoustic version is satisfying me though.

*rubs eyes* :stunned: wat

Dear God . . . this doesn't even sound like the same song! Why the heck did the guys use that overproduced scrap of dirt over this version? The instrumentation even partially makes up for the bad lyrics!

I just . . . wat

Although I wish they had re-recorded the vocals (with or without Rihanna . . . preferably without), because the effects don't sound quite right with an acoustic soundscape.

Damn, that acoustic record had so much potential.
:nod: Could not agree with you more.
