Me and Adam were discussing tearing Robbie Williams a new rude box for his karaoke cover of Lewis Taylor's Lovelight.

It's not particularly terrible (they've barely done anything to it), what's more annoying is no one will realise it's a cover.

Girls Aloud are set to do a cover of Kaiser Chiefs' "I Predict A Riot."

I actually think this would be quite good!

That's the thing that really annoys me about Jeff Buckley's cover of "Hallelujah"

I didn't think they could sink any lower but Westlife are actually releasing a covers album called...wait for it...The Love Album. rolleyes.gif They've only gone and done You've Lost That Loving Feeling for it. That'll be another classic that'll have the heart ripped out of it by them, then.

They're like Robson and Jerome with double the pain but less than half the talent and likability.

I was wondering, do you reckon we could all club together and do a Banksy and swap as many albums with fake ones up and and down the country when it's released? Change the title to The Lithium Album, perhaps.

I have a question for Radio 2:

Why mark the anniversary of one of the most original and groundbreaking albums of all time by getting a group of mediocre, radio friendly, utterly forgettable, derivative and pointless bands to cover every song on said album?

It was done so much better in 1988 with the Child line charity album "Sgt. Pepper Knew My Father"


Three Wize Men - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Wet Wet Wet - With a Little Help From My Friends
The Christians - Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds
The Wedding Present with Amelia Fletcher - Getting Better
Hue and Cry - Fixing a Hole
Billy Bragg with Cara Tivey - She's Leaving Home
Frank Sidebottom - Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
Sonic Youth - Within You Without You
Courtney Pine Quartet - When I'm Sixty-Four
Michelle Shocked - Lovely Rita
The Triffids - Good Morning, Good Morning
Three Wize Men - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)
The Fall - A Day in the Life


And it gave Billy Bragg his only Number 1 (albeit shared with Wet Wet Wet).


I wonder if there will be similar, or any, celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the other groundbreaking British album "Never Mind The Bollocks". Hope they get the Fratellis to cover it. wacko.gif

Excellent stuff. Frank Sidebottom hehe.

I like good tribute albums - i had a copy of the "I wish i was a Carpenter" album and some bastard nicked it at Uni. And there is a Serge Gainsbourg one that i never managed to get but sounds ace.

I'd love to get the Serge one. Were they specially recorded tracks or covers from the past.

Tribute albums seem to vary in quality - Oasis - meh, Smiths - "oh dear", Depeche Mode - excellent. I have another Beatles charity covers album at home which is rather excellent ("fraggle" bands like Mega City Four), and there was another charity one of Elvis covers in the 80's which was great too.

I recently bought a CD of Rockabilly covers of the Clash's London Calling album which is rather good.

I think it was a mixture of both - but apparently there is another tribute album than the one I was thinking of called Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited and sounds rather nifty even if the songs are English translations.

The other one has a version of Je T'aime by Cibo Matto and Sean Lennon. Can't find it anywhere.

Thanks for that Sefi.

You might be interested that some years ago The Bad Seeds' Mick Harvey released a rather excellent CD of Serge covers which is well worth checking out

Brian Molko and some bird whose name I can't remember covered Je t'aime and it was very peculiar - I didn't enjoy it.

I heard the name and will check it out, cheers. Brian Molko and Placebo are on the Revisited album - the latter doing my favourite song by SG, "La Ballade de Melody Nelson". I will be searching for a copy forthwith.

It perplexes me at the moment as to why that girl from the Sugababes would use a Terence Trent D'arby sample, (well I say sample but she basically uses an instrumental), just to sing a worse vocal over it.


It just does not sound right.


edit: Or is it Lenny Kravitz?

It's Lenny Kravitz.

That X-Factor winner, Leona, covering A Moment Like This makes me feel very violent. She's a good singer, but she totally murdered that song. Not a patch on Kelly Clarkson.

Edit: And Ronan Keating did a version of Iris? That's just a crime against nature. Only Goo Goo Dolls can do that song.

And to every Girls Aloud cover ... GET YOUR OWN SONGS, YOU TALENTLESS FREAKS!
