Season 4 Hands DOWN!
La saison quatre est la meilleure!
La estaciĆ³n cuatro es la mejor!

The song is the bomb & love the groove. I appreciate the focus on the chirren. Just loved it so much better. But Season 3 was a close second.

Kinda partial to the original, but that's just b/c it's the original. Season 4's version is probably a better production.

I'm going to have to go with Season 3. Season 5 is at the end of my list. Although the more I listen to it, the more it grows on me...
Shout out to payola!

Season 3 without a doubt! The Neville Brothers rendition is simultaneously soulful and energetic, sounding the warning with hopeful anticipation of redemption - Perfect for The Wire (The Best show ever on cable)

Season 4's version is my second favorite, then Season 1's, Season 2's and last Season 5's

OT but I can't help it - the end credits music "The Fall" is a fantastic piece, I love it but it pains me too because it signals the end of another Classic episode ... and makes me yearn for the next episode.

I always sit through the credits just to hear that track. The bass with that violin crescendo and decrescendo are on point.
