It’s odd. Luther’s version is more interesting vocally. He plays with the audience; there is a conversation there. He elongates sections when he sees that they are enjoying themselves. It’s fun to sing with. He’s obviously playing with the audience.

But until I heard Midler’s version, I didn’t realize that the song is a song about unrequited love and that the target is not even present to hear the singer. It sounds like a song from a musical. It is being sung for a particular purpose and to a particular person and the voice is jagged at times and definitely not “pretty”.

Go figure. Given that, I am going to go with Jazzhole’s version. The singer is beautiful vocally without giving me the feeling that I am being manipulated.
