To the above poster - If you understood this album you would know why the covers are on it. This CD is Ronan's tribute to his mother (who died of cancer when he was 19) It is a compilation of her favorite songs or songs she sang around the house, or to him, as he was growing up. He also redid his personal "This Is Your Song" that is a dedicatuon to her. Please know what you are talking about before you speak.
As for covers, Ronan, or his friends, have written 70 of the songs on his CD and several you may think are covers he actually recorded first. (ex: When You Say Nothing At All, The Long Goodbye)
If you do not like music such as comes from Ronan, Boyzone, Take That, Westlife, etc. Don't purchase it.
