3 times this week I've had to leave shops that were playing 'All I want for Christmas' by Maria Carey smiley - groansmiley - run

I'm right behind you.


Roy Wood and Wizzard.

Oh how do the shops think of such original playlists year after year? (sarcasm)

I know the Noddie Holder doesn't like the way his song is used. He maintains that it is a song that should be played on Christmas Day only, just as the family is opening its presents.

Bassman - Funny how people never ceases to amaze me!

That song they had him and Andy sing at the end of the show was absolute PANTS - AND - Andy's version was better, I think it suited his voice more.

I didn't see the whole of the series, but I would have loved to see Andy do a decent Seal number, Crazy or Future Love Paradise.

Please be wrong about Chico

I think we'll find "It's Chico Time" will be in the shops sometime in the New Year, since he was banned from releasing it as a Christmas single in competition with the X Factor winner.

Part of the conditions imposed on all the contestants, I think, is that they would be contractually bound to the production company's rules about what recording deals they would be able to make following appearances on the show.

Never mind, Bassman - you won't have to wait for it too much longer. smiley - evilgrin

smiley - rofl

I agree with you about Andy - I think he would have made a good job of a Seal number, too. The only up-tempo song I heard him do was "Easy Lover", and it was a bit of a disaster. Mind you, I didn't see them all either, so I'm not sure whether he did any other 'contemporary' songs or stuck to Nat 'King' Cole covers the rest of the time.

And apologies to all for hijacking this thread to discuss X Factor ... smiley - blush

Guru Roghan Josh said in posting 444,

Paul McCartney did an album track called "Don't go chasing waterfalls" and I've always assumed that the TLC song was a sort of cover.

Yes, Paul M wrote Waterfalls and the TLC version is a "Cover" despite the fact they changed some of the words. the tune is quite similar though.

Blame Sting. he wrote it, he gets the royalties regardless of how the song is buggered about with and he has final say about how ppl mash his songs about.

sadly chico has a single out shockingly called it's chico time.
milli vanilli had more talent than him and they didn't even sing their own songs.
Or young robert van winkle (thats vanilla ice to those who dont know him). he was rubbish, too white to be hip.

I heard a very bad version of Dancing Queen that had a failed harmony between a tuneless bass singing man and a tuneless high pitched woman.

It was dire

Also adds James Blunt's "you're beautiful" which is kinda like a rat doing a David Gray impression

If we were allowed bad covers the list would be endless - I think I've got used to every half-decent song I've ever like being butchered at some point.

Got to agree on James Blunt and like the description. smiley - ok

While I dislike You're Beautiful, I don't mind James Blunt, I quite like a couple of the songs on the album.

I just wish Chico would go away and die, it'd save me the hassle of making elaborate plans to destroy him. Worst song at the moment though has to be Westlife's Amazing. It's so bad I actually laugh at it.

Of course, this thread began in a happier, more innocent pre-Blunt era and needs to be reassessed accordingly.

You have to admire the follow-up to 'You're Beautiful' though, with the memorable 'I know you well/I know your smell' couplet.

Hopefully 'Chico time' will be the time that Andy Warhol talked about. smiley - ok

I had to sit through two tracks from a Shania Twain album this morning. Not a pleasant experience. Been in a bad mood all day.

There was disco train wreck of a song I recall as, Love to Love you Baby, and in the end this singer was made to make every nuance of what could be construed as an orgasm. Fat too many drugs in the 1970's
