without other people's song to cover???
I love him, but seriously can't he have a hit single that he wrote?
how did that do in the charts?
why does it matter how many other people buy his music?
not saying sales matter. just saying it's weird how he can only seem to gain notoriety from cover songs. hmmmm
and is playing with a very very defined sound.
itd be very very difficult for him to write a song of his own that captures peoples imagination as when he applies his sound to something that people already know.
it's shame that the songs Radio One have picked on to playlist A have been the covers because his own stuff is great. Not his fault really.
his own songs are shit and he just wants to be famous?
Not really when he reinvents the songs. His covers barely sound like the originals.
its an explanation of why his covers are more famous than his own things.
include more smilies so people know when you're not 100% serious.
like when you do threads like this:
has the heartbeats cover that broke him
The Kylie and Joy Division covers are on an Australian EP which has all the b/sides and stuff he's put out on it, a cool cd too.
.. that WWJD crap. you should make wristbands. WWJGD?
Hasn't Veneer (containing no covers) just gone platinum. I think he'd be alright to be honest.
