WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOSE EVERYTHING AND WIN EVERYTHING

LEONA IS DEAD LONG LIVE LEON. In the short stop gap between the inevitable X-Factor christmas number 1, we have this little lad. A charity cover of what a wonderful world, by eva cassidy and katie melua, which begs the question: is it acceptable to fancy someone who is dead? i totally would with eva cassidy, if you know what i mean. slight confusion this week involving me listening first to the actual song, and then to the my bloody valentine cover of this song to get 'in the mood', and getting to the end before i realised that it was a completely different song ( we have all the time in the world) oh well. regarding that my bloody valentine cover, its nowhere near as good as you think it would be. but its still fucking awesome. and its one of the two things they have done post loveless ( their wire cover is unbelievably brilliant). so heres my delay drenched cover that i did post-confusion.

YOU ARNT LOU BEGA

my usual cohort jack fabian was unavailable for recording, so basically its my fault entirely.
onto recent music news, this leon lad seemed to win x factor, and there is a lot of contraversy regarding jammed lines according to the daily mail (WAS X FACTOR FIXED BY POLISH SEX GANG?DIANA SAYS 'NO TO SAME DIFFERENCE', and so on)and the gaggle of women in the kitchen on Floor 1 . personally i found many parallels in their inability to meet customers expectations during the x factor voting process, with that of the recent installation of new telephony throughout the call centre i work at. both seemed to be badly planned, and ill-fitting of the requirements of the end-user. rhydian has apparently just inked a deal with simon cowell for one million rods. good lad. didnt see that coming at all. totally blew my mind like 'who shot jr oh no it was a dream i am in the shower' shit.

THE LEON JACKSON SINGLE IS 4 POUNDS
HE WAS BORN IN 1988 THOUGH AND THAT YEAR IS ALRIGHT

really buzzing off covering that next week.

That's a killer version, but get your vocals higher up in the mix.

Can't wait till next week - when you do the Leon song.

Keep up the good work
