I'd vote for Meat's version just to support him, but I really don't like the arrangement or Marion's voice.

IMO Celine Dion owns this song.

I can'r stand the Duet version from Bat 3.

I also love the Pandoras Box version, but I choose Celines.

On a side note I think that there is no question that Celine's version is "Is Nothing Sacred" is the best, despite being unreleased.

Meat Loaf and Patti own this song. Nobody can do it better not even Celine Dion. imo

I've never heard a version of Is Nothing Sacred that I actually like.

Of the three artists in the poll Meat's is the worst. Desmond just didn't know what he was doing, the vocals were ok, but the arrangement was a disgrace. It's supposed to be a bloody power ballad!!!

I thought Celine's was the best. Elaine very was close but I just never liked her voice and I don't know why. I always thought she was over hyped by the Steinfans the same way Rob Evan was.

Curiosity got the better of me and against my better judgement I played the clip. I truly wish it was possible to un-hear what I heard. Like I said earlier, cat's claws on a chalkboard.

I don't know what it is about her voice but I have never liked it.

Celine's version is okish, but i absolutely loved Marion and Meat singing IACBTMN, i like Marions voice. I think that Meat and Marion sound very good together. Must admit i have never heard Elaines version, so can't comment on that. I do like Marion Raven a lot and her solo album imo is excellent :)
As for INSA, Meat and Patti PERFECT IMO !

Thanks Evil One, well i gotta say that version is simply stunning and wins hands down ! Production stellar, guitars are sublime ! ! Love Elaines voice and suits this song and arrangement perfectly. 8 minutes of brilliance !
Jim hits the passion and sadness perfectly with his production.
Thank you very much for sharing
PS Love the cover as well !

She has a voice I could learn to like (I'm just not that big on women's voices and it usually takes me a while to warm up to them.) but I don't feel this song is "her".

Elaine's version wins every time for me. The guitar solo and the instrumental (which you don't hear on the Celine Dion version) are to die for. Just absolutely stunning...

But (I'm aware this might be a little controversial) I prefer Celine's vocal. It just has so much more power. She really nails the song. She did four great songs, IMO, this, "Beauty and the Beast", "My heart will go on" and "The Prayer". I love those songs.

Meat's has to be my least favourite. It just seems powerless to me, which isn't Meat's fault, but the other singer (just wasn't all that moving to me) and Desmond's production. Meat's the best thing about it, and the vibe that the song is now sung by an older person, haunted by the ghost... If Jim had produced that, it would have worked for me.

I voted for Meat's version.
However Elaine Caswell's version had the best female voice.

Of the choices listed, Meat's version for sure, I like the song as a duet. All things considered though, I would give the nod to the version on the Bat Musical soundtrack for my top favorite
