Awful Cover Version
on 4 December 2012
I'm sorry to say that I'm generally finding this 'kooky girl with a piano' thing a bit boring now.
I loved the original version of this song by The Calling and am in no way against cover versions. In fact there are some cover versions that I feel are actually an improvement on the original. However this is certainly NOT the case here.
Why anyone would want to take a decent soft rock/pop song and dull it down is beyond me for a start. While I don't doubt this lady can sing to a certain extent, it is evident that auto-tuning has been used. In spite of that I find her voice incredibly annoying/grating and whenever the local radio station decides to once again poison the airwaves with it, I find myself quickly reaching for the off/channel change buttons.
This version does absolutely nothing for me, other than successfully managing to achieve the amazing feat of turning one of my favorite tracks into one of my most hated.
The worse song of 2012 for me, sorry.
