Song vs. Singer; Which Is More Important?

I just came across a really interesting article that goes deeper into points I made last month when I compared certain album songs with their original demos that were sung by other artists.

Which is greater? The song or the singer?

The article leads with the controversial Madonna song "Heartbeat," for which a demo performed by Pharrell and Nicole Scherzinger recently surfaced on the Web.

It also talks about how an unknown singer recorded and released a song called "Don't Cha," which The Pussycat Dolls ultimately propelled to become a top 40 staple a couple of years ago.

Apparently Kelly Clarkson wasn't the original choice to sing the song "Since You Been Gone," which helped earn her a Grammy.

It's an interesting read.
