Royal Variety Performance... [Dec. 11th, 2005|11:17 pm]

Dear Dame Shirley Bassey,

How dare you rip off, and attempt to cover, one of the greatest classic songs of all time.  John Miles' "Music" is a timeless classic, which did not deserve to be murdered by you, or anyone else.

I will grant that you do have an awesome voice... in your field... but I'm afraid songs like that should be left well alone.

Yours sincerely,
Disgruntled (with bleeding eardrums) of Slough

I wholly agree, Michael Ball has brought it out on his album too. But then no one is ever going to sing it as well as John Miles.

I think I'm glad I missed that.

My mum always called her Burley Shassey :)

So does my Dad!!

Dave, I sympathise. Bleeding eardrums are painful to say the least.
