The Song: ‘November Rain’
"November Rain" is a power ballad by the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses. Written by the band's lead singer Axl Rose, the song was released as a single in 1992 from their third studio album, Use Your Illusion I. It features a sweeping orchestral backing and is one of Guns N' Roses' longest songs.
Today, I’ve got three different contenders for you to choose from. Each one hails from a different country. Each one brings something a little different. Give each of them a listen. Try not to be influenced by the videos. Cast your vote for the contender you like best in the comments.
