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.

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.

I have been a huge fan of Willie Nelson forever and love his cover of this Coldplay song. His voice is still rough and tender and brings out the passion of the original song in new and exciting ways. Hearing him sing a song I love from the original band with his typical sparse accompaniment is amazing and should be in any fans collection. If you like Coldplay or Willie, get this cover now. It will quickly become one of your favorites too.

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.

While I liked the original version of this song; I find that I like this version better. I'm not much of a willie nelson fan, but found that his voice and style made this track that more awesome. It's worth a listen

Willie Nelson really brings this song to life. The Coldplay version is just okay. Willie hits it out of the park, with great feeling, poignancy, and the right kind of voice for the song. One of his all time bests!
