Well if we’re gonna talk about Kate Ryan duets with Eurovision contestants, I am required by law to post
“On The Floor” “Little Braveheart”:
Well then, Monday, fresh new week.
What better way to start than with a painful elimination?
Love Is All Around
High scores: 10 x 4 (@Ana Raquel, @iheartpoptarts, @Sprockrooster, @Txetxu)
Low scores: 4 x 1 (@Verandi), 4.75 x 1 (@CasuallyCrazed)
Chart positions: N/A
Album down! Yes, Stronger has finally fallen. Does it have the lowest average? Find out #later.
Until then, please enjoy a variety of cover versions.
First, representing New Zealand (and Australia) it's Ricki-Lee:
Representing South Africa, it's Jody Williams:
In the Japanese corner, it's Arashi:
And representing Malaysia (and Singapore) is Shi Xin Hui:
There is another out there, but I shall leave it to @WowWowWowWow to post because there is a Dame Catherine Ryan connection.
Unfortunately short one tonight. I wish I could describe it as sweet, but it's not, because I'm the one writing it and I'm not capable of that. More thoughts to follow later, in some form of album summary. Unless anyone else who has the album wants to chip in?
Who mourns for a lost album?
@londonrain makes me rethink my initial choice for a thread title:
'Mercifully not a Wet Wet Wet cover.' - 8.0
@berserkboi thinks along the same lines:
'Queen of making me think so many songs here are covers by title alone! I knew this from somewhere though!' - 9.1
@danmharrow wants more variety:
"She has way too many songs with generic ‘love’ titles. The (pre?)chorus elevates it, and then there’s another cheesy glorious chorus to come." - 7.5
@abael is also unsatisfied, but not for the same reason:
'A bit more energetic here but Agnes is still held back by a production that is pretty bare-bones.' - 7.0
@DJHazey was more positive:
'The chorus is truly a mini rush.' - 8.0
Final words saved for @iheartpoptarts:
"Obvious single choice missed. I don’t know which random record company person decided to put out ‘Champion’ instead but I hope they saw the various covers of this smash all over the world and headdesked a lot." - 9.0
Well not 'final'. I get to do that. The next elimination sees us stop teasing you about someone losing an eleven, for a little while at least.
Oh yes. Drama queens are very much my thing.
Imagine forgetting this though.
It even has LENA PHILIPSSON on it.
and this was on the album too:
Kan du ge dig fan på att jag kan,
Jag kan älska kvinna eller man,
För det är på riktigt,
Viktigt att få vara sann.
Carola could never. She'd choke on the words.
