question: why that version instead of the original, Marvin Gaye was maybe the best American voice.

This is my favorite live performance:
The OP asked what's "your" favorite song and that's mine. Look at the artist lineup performing it. Better still, give it a listen.

True Love Leaves no Traces, Leonard Cohen.

It's interchangeable though with many many others..

I have, not just a song, but a specific performance of the song. I contend it has everything, rhythm, melody, a bassline and as sexy as anything ever written, plus it's an admission of your willingness to surrender to desire. What could possibly be better?

@GDK It's O Paraiso by Madredeus. I'm sure it will be available if you find another clip in YouTube.

Mine was not a criticism, I respect the personal preference, it was just a curiosity.
Yes, I listened to that version, thank you for posting it.

As far as I can remember there are only 2 songs that take me to a state no others can, I can not tell which one I lik....love the most:
Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say) by Ian Gillan....the anger, desperation, and resignation of a man who is about to die.
Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits, Alchemy Album.....Mark Knopfler in crescendo guitar solo, hypnotizes me every time.
