It’s a pretty solid singles collection! And she did mention it was a collection of singles plus a few covers. I was really excited about the unreleased songs - but I guess she didn’t have the rights to any of them. Which is sad!
Crying At The Discotheque is really nice. This plus Groovejet 2020 is what I’m looking forward to on the album. Hopefully the Pulp cover is in higher quality than the YouTube version, because I’ll happily include it with the other b-sides and rarities collection.
I don’t understand why she included a live version of True Faith when she could have just included the other version she already released.

Cheaper to licence.
Mad'house's Like A Prayer sacrilege???????? I sensed it and came to fight as fast as I could!!!!
Not an expert in this.. but whilst usually you don't need permission to put out a cover of a previously released song, the publishers can object if you change it too much. Like you can do a straight note-for-note cover but if they can argue you've changed it enough to make it a derivative work, they can say no.
I haven't heard the missing covers in question though! Did she change them at all?
Poor Madonna having to sit through all the Star Academy acts covering her songs that day she appeared on the show during the Confessions era ddd.
I’ll never understand why Madonna allowed Mad’house to do anything
It's.... Sophie Ellis Bextor. It's literally note for note karaoke.
Another thing to consider is that by prioritising songs she's written/co-written, she gets a bigger chunk of the songwriting royalties!
Yeah I've just listened to Like A Prayer and Our House. There can't have been any problem with those..
It's possible the default for certain people is to say "no" even if they have no grounds to, and people are too scared to defy them in case they are taken to court?
Just so I can look them up on Youtube without watching 20 performances of Murder On The Dancefloor: does anyone have a list of all covers she did (I'm sure it's been posted here but can't find it)
Gutted that I Won't Change You isn't included.
After hearing the new song, and having not really followed Sophie for a long time, I listened to her debut this evening. It has really stood the test of time hasn't it? I need to delve further into her discography, as other than the debut, and subsequent singles I'm not massively familiar with her work despite her 2002 tour being the first concert I ever went to!
This one's the one
I have heard bits of that album before. If I Can't Dance is a favourite of mine but I've never given the album a full listen. I'll give it a whirl over the weekend. Thanks!
I prefer the original but this is brilliant.
Well done Sophie!
I'm ecstatic about the inclusion of Music Gets The Best Of Me but slightly concerned. I hope she includes the album version and not the single version. Same with Today The Sun's On Us and Starlight. All of their radio edits omit the best parts.
Crying At The Discotheque sounds amazing. The background vocals and production sound wonderful. It's refreshing to hear something that is produced by someone other than Ed. (I say this as someone who enjoyed both Wanderlust and Familia.)
Her sophomore offering doesn't get nearly the amount of love it deserves.
