I think my favourite might be a live version with Chris & Will singing acapella for a few secs. The one I have in mind is from June 1st at the Emirates, I think. I also love the version they did backstage at this event in Manchester (Rock in Manchester ? something like that).

 

Actually I love all versions :wacky:

Paralympics is my favourite - it's the only version where they played the intro from the album version, which is a beautiful part of the song. That said, Chris makes a mistake on the guitar right after the 1st chorus, which for a performance of that magnitude, is a little bit of a turnoff.

 

Live 2012 version is great, but there are a couple versions from this year that I like a little better than the one they ended up picking for the DVD - because on the DVD, Chris still plays a little guitar in the 2nd verse, so it's not fully a cappella, and Chris has a cooler falsetto in the Paralympics version as well as the one I'm about to post. But here's a version where they go 100% a cappella in the 2nd verse, and it. For example:

My favourites are those versions where Chris and Will sing a cappella together, I just find the mix of their voices so beautiful. But considering the one in the poll, I'd say the Paralympics one... Which absolutely moved me, not just because of the music and their voices, but also for the atmosphere, all those people clapping to the rhythm :wacky:

I loved the 12.12.12 one too, but I preferred to choose the one with the original arrangement, and Will singing.
