The version with Lena is INCREDIBLE. The Rasmus should've kept Lenka in the song. Annette is very "meh".

How is it possible that the singer of my favorite band replaces my favorite singer?
What a coincidence!
I must say, I prefer Lena's voice more ;)
But Anette isn't that awesome anyway, she's not Nightwish for me :p

Wow love this song! Lena was beautiful of course, different doin a duet with a guy but great all the same. They were wrong to change the singers, it was perfect with Lena!

Mimi, thank you for helping promote it!

Listen to both versions and don't see any reason to replace Lena. Her version is beautiful. Anette is nice as well.

It would have been interesting to see Lena in the video if she hadn't been replaced

I love this song! They should have pick Lena instead of Anette.

I just posted the video on my facebook, blog, and now on my twitter.

I wanna download this! :( But my moms on the computer! :( I bet its nice anyway :)

Lena's english vocals are just short of flawless. She sounds divine. I do, however, prefer her voice recorded in specific samples (as in tatu) - rather than a fairly consistent recording of lyrics (as in this & LITD).

Wow, this is sooo beautiful! I don't understand why Lena was replaced.

I've heard the one with Annette and I thought it was okay...but Lena's voice just makes it so angelic and beautiful.

Annette makes it seem like your average pop ballad :P

She was like April sky
Sunrise in her eyes
Child of light, shining star
Fire in her heart
Brightest day, melting snow
Breaking through the chill
October and April

He was like frozen sky
In October night
Darkest cloud in the storm
Raining from his heart
Coldest moon, deepest blue
Tearing down this spring
October and April

Like hate and love
Worlds apart
This fatal love was like poison
Right from the start

Like light and dark
Worlds apart
This fatal love was like poison
Right from the start

We were like loaded guns
Sacrificed our lives

We were like love unbound
Craving to entwine

Fatal touch
Final thrill
Love was bound to kill
October and April

Like hate and love
Worlds apart
Light and dark
Worlds apart

This fatal love was like poison
Right from the start

October and April
October and April
October and April
