So you prefer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUDlAXRK3bE over http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyrFP11qJ8U&feature=related?

IMO, they're both good. Maybe this wasn't a very good choice of song because the music can act as classical. Dang... just compare:

It's really hard to find a good song to compare the original with the instrumental. :(

Well it for me it goes beyond that. In both your examples I would prefer the lyrical version as it ads an extra dimension to the song. Especially in the second example as you constantly have the feeling your missing something (which is filled in by the voice).

But lets say Kiss Me Good Bye has two version both English and Japanese. In that cause I would say that both are equally good, mainly because it song bye the same singer and keeps the same feeling throughout the song.

The problem with My Hands and Kimi Ga Iru Kara is that the later has been specially made to fit the game, where as My Hands has just been selected from an album that already existed (okay the album had yet to be released, but the song was already there). This means that both these songs have an completely different feeling which leaves open the choice whether we like it or not. And in that cause I have to say I rather have the original.

Heh, I didn't think much on the switch because it really didn't matter to me. I would have to say that both suit the story of Final Fantasy XIII quite well if you ask me.
