    I hadn’t emsz but I don’t think that version quite gives the same ‘lived it’ tone as the one I posted.

    I think her voice is too ‘pure’ to convey the emotions? Maybe it’s just a song that works better with a hint of bitterness?

    Pixie Lott has got a pleasant enough voice, but why does she have to put on the speech impediment (“I’m weady now”) when she sings? Very pub singer-ish. And all the wailing doesn’t help.

    If you really want a bizarre Love Will Tear Us Apart cover……Paul Young. Not his fest hour.

    Lissie’s Stairway to Heaven is pretty good

    Not something most people would try to cover but she makes a pretty good fist of it
