After feeling sleep deprived from all the earthquake aftershocks, and at a loose end from not being able to do the show, this one put me back in a good mood. Let’s hope that this cunt goes on to do cover versions of Phil Collins, Paul Young, and Billy Joel.
I do believe that Spandau Ballet’s “Gold” is The Herb Whisperer’s karaoke/SingStar song of choice. However, none of us will ever be able to sing it again without gratuitously swearing throughout it.
THX ALISON !!!
By the way, here’s the original – just as dodgy. But a belter of a song!
*Delete where gender appropriate
According to the Hamburger Abendblatt, quoted here on Huffington Post, Phil Collins is planning to release a new album in 2010 consisting of cover versions of 30 Motown songs. Apparently, he wants “the songs to sound exactly like the originals”.
If you can’t be arsed bringing one shred of individuality or exercising one braincell in the creation of music.
At this point I was going to link to Paul Morley tearing Phil a new one in an interview in the NME in the 80’s. Or Mr. Collins’ vow to leave the UK should the Tories lose the general election in 1997. Or his ridiculous grandstanding on Live Aid by playing at both London and Philadelphia.
But I can’t be fucking bothered.
