    Enjoyable (if you enjoy that kind of thing) cover of Wham Rap

    Heard the original for the first time in a pub the other day. Two word review: no thanks.

    Mercury Rev do John Lennon with lots of OTT Hammond organ.

    Spiritualized doing The Troggs. This was the first tune Jason Pierce released with his then-new band, but pretty much all the great things about their later work are already in place here. That trick of finding the little implied melodies buried in a wall of guitar noise then getting a string section to actually play them over the top, just gorgeous.

    When I first saw this womans picture last night, I thought Nita Strauss :facepalm: Well Nite Strauss she ain't. I was going post a link to Whiter Shade of Pale, but I think
    this could be "appreciated" more....I give you her version of a Metallica number;

    Not nearly so good is doom side of the moon. Dub Side is head and shoulders better than this

    They don't compare...one is a singer the other a guitarist.
    I've seen both and my money is on Doro....she was one of the few women who could hold her own when metal/rock was male orientated. it is the likes of her that paved the way for the likes of Nita.

    I agree they don't compare, but the both rock from the frontvof the stage (or could do). Who would I pay to go and see, who would I give up my time to listen to.

    I have seen this lady many times over the last couple of years, even in my local pub :) She is lovely and she stops me in my tracks. Such talent.

    She has not crossed my radar before and not really my taste. No. 1 woman singer has to be Chrissy. I would die very happy simply listening to her sing to me.

    I love this, she has surely recorded it in her bedroom? Every care home in Orkney has an organ like the big brown one at the back and they are often for sale in restart when someone dies. One day I will get hold of one :)

    Remix by LED of Inverness, so proud.

    Thought I'd never heard these before but then discovered I knew "There Goes Concorde again" pretty well. The lassie is brilliant in this one, listened to it more than once !


    ETA: I would like to hear what it was she was interpreting originally unless The Foundations had really gone off script there

    I have that but am not sure about it. The easys have also done a Jacko album I think, which I may have!

    You don't put money on anyone, music isn't a sports contest !!!!!

    :confused: :rolleyes:
    It's a saying. I know music isn't a sports contest.
    You seem to have problems with my posts.
    Maybe you shouldn't read them, that way you won't feel the need to make snidey comments :)

    I know it's a saying, just having a dig re the who is best chat. I have problems with your posts? Eh? That's news to me!

    I went and bought a vinyl version as I thought and still think it's even better than the original album (though the original OK Computer is awesome enough).

    I know about Thrillah, it's good. They also did a version of the whole Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album too,

    It's an unwritten rule of Urban75 that no-one cares for my taste in music, but this just came up on my playlist so I'll offer it anyway

    I suspect Sgt Pepper will be added to the collection soon enough. Dub side of the moon will remain a firm favourite, but, I see they have also released dubber side of the moon :confused:
    Goes off to investigate.

    Just listened to this and realised it's not on the thread BUT IT SHOULD BE
    because it's unusual and good.



    EtA, they also did a version like this of Where is my Mind by Pixies. I just happen to like War Pigs better.
