Studio Version VS LIVE

Did you know that some of our favorite hit songs may have a version that you have never heard? I don’t believe the difference with the studio version vs LIVE version!

As a matter of fact something magical happens when an artist does hit song LIVE on stage.  Above all, it’s the energy of the audience that lifts the energy of the song. I dug up a few examples to listen to. I can’t believe how different the studio versions of our favorite LIVE hit song sound. Undoubtedly, these hit songs sound better LIVE.

Paul McCartney‘s Maybe I’m Amazed

According to Wikipedia:

Maybe I’m Amazed was first released on his 1970 debut solo album McCartney. Although the original recording has never been released as a single, a live performance by McCartney’s later band Wings, from the live album Wings over America, was. Released in 1977, this version became a top ten hit in the United States and reached number 28 in the United Kingdom. You won’t believe how different the studio version sounds! Hear more below!

  • Cheap Trick-I Want You To Want Me

    The studio version sounds awesome, if you love Greenday. It’s sounds like them!
    The LIVE version from LIVE in Budokan, to me is so much better!

  • Peter Frampton-Show Me The Way

    The voice box in the studio version sounds MUCH different that the HIT live version!

  • Kiss-Rock And Roll All Night

    The studio version, may put you to sleep!

  • Bob Segar-Turn The Page

    The studio version needs another 50,000 people watching, and screaming!
