I saw her perform live once. It was excruciatingly uncomfortable but somehow compelling at the same time. She clearly was someone who needed to have good people around her in life at that time and I hope she had them. ‘Covers’ track list.

I can’t recognise a single title there :D
Except These Days but I presume it’s not a Bardot/Jennifer Paige cover

I don’t know who this person is but I always hate it when someone releases a covers album full of songs I’ve never heard of. Your cover of Automatic Shoes by Murgatroyd and the Mincers is lovely I’m sure, but I came here for My Life Would Suck Without U.

isn't that the point though? bring attention to songs people haven't heard?
personally, i can't think of anything worse than a bland, x-factor-type ballad take on a hit song. brain shudder.

I like to have a point of reference so I can see what they've changed and compare against the original.

I’m pretty sure @octophone is a huge fan of that song
