    The worst music news of the past decade, this really has ruined my year...

    The face of evil (a.k.a. Michelle McManus from Pop Idol) is said to be 'attempting' a cover version of Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good'.

    I heard about this on the radio whilst at work, and had to stop working for about 10 minutes, so angry was I, I then spent the following three hours bickering hateful remarks and swearing, getting strange looks from my colleagues.

    Why won't this woman just **** off & die?

    Have you heard the cover of "Centrefold" that [spunge] have done?

    Come back when you've heard that.

    And how did you spend the preceeding 3 hours bickering? :confused: Surely it would be the following 3 hours :rolleyes: ;)

    I know what you typed but assumed it was a typo. Proceeding means something entirely different!

    "If you can proceed down the road" said the examiner.

    or
    "The proceeds of the charity auction went to..."

    Either way, I'm not sure what my point is as I havn't heard anything by the artist you mention or the song in question ;) :p

    I think she performed it on the show. I think I might have viewed it. :rolleyes: :blush:

    And if I am right it's already been recorded and on the album, waiting to be inflicted on humanity. I only know this because there was an album review (1 star) in last week's Scotsman. One song was described an awful voyage of discovery that the listener must embark on alone to fully comprehend, or something.

    To be fair to the 'Large one' there have been so many butcherings of classics recently, in particular by 'dance' acts that one more really doesn't make much difference. I know what you mean though dimmy. Puffy winky slaughtering Kashmir (with pages help!) made my blood pressure rise alarmingly!!

    Is that the one that starts off as Kashmir (I get all excited), then turns to cr@p and you get that sinking feeling, like you've just fondled a transvestite :rolleyes:

    Let us hope that 'the_pauley' doesn't see this thread :laugh:.

    I really don't care when awful new pop and dance 'Artists' butcher music I don't like. But this is different...

    The 'Pop' artist that just makes my blood boil more than any other is covering one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite artists, BADLY, and getting paid & being famous for it...

    I hope she has a horrible life.

    There's plenty of great songs being written at the moment. It's just that they're not in the singles chart.

    It doesn't bother me too much, as I don't listen to Radio 1, watch Top of the Pops or buy singles.
