Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

I sometimes think that that attitude of encroaching on the very right to dislike/criticize and speak it up might have been burned in some people's minds by the absence of "Dislike" button in FB :D

Re: It couldn't happen here ltd edition back at BFI

Huh. I think this is the 2nd time they somehow find extra copies after the main course was sold out, isn't it?

Re: PSB vs Daft Punk

Is this thread related to PSB at all? :?

But that doesn't say when he said it. It could be right after the show back in 1997. It could be much later.

If he said it in 1997, I doubt he would still be of that view these days :D

Re: PSB Finest moment?

I doubt there could be any way to sensibly and adequately measure/compare the fineness of all the great moments such a versatile and long-standing pop/art act as PSB has had in their career.

When did Chris say that?

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

It may be because of the prejudice that the lethargic first single (sorry, I am wrong, the second single actually following Dreamland) caused in me. I was utterly disappointed (and somehow got angry) when I had first listened to it. I am very envious, no, actually jealous of you who embrace this al...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

I'm not really sure it is a karaoke version though. At the beginning I though it was, but I think it sounds like a slightly different arrangement? Yes of course it would not be the real original instrumental. (None has officially been released. The leaked multitrack lacks some stems e.g. the drum k...

That's pretty subjective, you free-range rude.

What's objective is that, as a general rule, covers do not use elements of the original recording (here she copied at least the original intro as is).

No worries, not asking you to change anything. My initial comment was more to let other readers know what the "cover" actually was.

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

I do care what it is. When I see something is called a "cover", I open the video link hoping to hear a real cover, where the artist has made effort to re-invent the song. But it turns out to be a karaoke party. Meh. Well, at least thank you guys for not finding homophobia in what I said :l...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

The first two comments are negative.... 🙄 If you indeed see any negativity in my comment, seek help. I simply called things what they were. How isn't that a karaoke? The instrumental part obviously aims to sound as close to the original as possible. Conversely, a cover usually re-invents it. Or, ma...

"covered"? It looks like just some home party karaoke.
