I first heard this song in a movie theater, in all places. Just after the movie trailers and before the feature presentation was to begin, Willie's unique voice lit up the theatre, and was accompanied by (what I thought was )a unique and fascinating stop-action short film. It turned out to be an ad for Chipotles, but Willie's emotionally stirring version of the the song, and the simple, but thought provoking video for it absolutely BLEW ME AWAY. A must have for any collection that includes Willie Nelson...and why WOULDN'T any legitimate collection include Willie? He's pure genius, and proves it again here.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only time I've bought a song because of a commercial December 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
This song was used in an ad campaign for Chipotle. I was familiar with the original version of this song, and thought it was okay, nothing spectacular. However, for some odd reason, when I hear Willie Nelson sing it, and he busts through to "I'm going back to the start", I get pumped enough to run through a wall. (Or try, at least.) Willie's voice is just perfect for the mood of this song. It's mournful and beautiful and I'm not even mad that it is telling me to buy a burrito.

Which reminds me, I could really go for a burrito right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime September 5, 2011
This version of the Scientist is sublime. I played it many times today and was very moved by the slide guitar, effortless ebb and flow of the rhythm, and Willie Nelson's unique voice. It is very moving and the artist brings a unique emotion to the song. I am not sure what he is saying, but I know what he means........and it makes me feel better for hearing it.

Willy owns this song now. Amazing. Like what Johnny Cash did for NIN's "Hurt". So much better than the original; this one has real passion.
