Soft Cell's cover of "Where Did Our Love Go?", it's the B-side to Tainted Love and is surprisingly good.

The Streets - Your Song > Elton John - Your Song > Ellie Goulding - Your Song.

I haven't heard The Streets murdering Your Song but I imagine it will be deeply dreadful like the rest of his s****.

"Lethal Bizzle - Flutes" is better than "New World Sound & Thomas Newson - Flute (Original Mix)"

Mike Skinner is wicked mate. Genuinely a great lyricist and his tone is on point, always.

I quite liked his first album. Loads of pop songs have empty lyrics

'We first met through a shared view.
She loved me and I did too.'

One of the best lyrics there is, tbh.

Muse - Feeling good.

Surely!

<disgrace> Surely not

The singer in muse sounds like a cat being castrated with a cheese grater, could never come close to doing Nina Simone justice.

The way you have wrote that suggests you haven't heard it, here it is just in case



I like the song better personally and i like Matt Bellamy's voice.

Matt Bellamy is a laughably bad singer and a mediocre guitarist at best.

There's no real way to debate his voice since that's subjective (you must listen to Muse all the time if his voice makes you laugh) but to say he's a mediocre guitarist is a bit harsh. Clearly he can play the guitar to a good standard, some of his songs have pretty difficult melodies and that, and his improvisation is pretty skilled. I'm a fan so i'm obviously biased, but I'm trying to be objective in saying that he is more than a mediocre guitarist.
