to think that the new Lily Allen record is bloody awful `

and sums up everything I hate about current female singers

1) Cover of good song turned into hideous twangly, twee poncy crappness. I feel offended for Keane, they come from my neck of the woods.
2) Breathy, fake "cockney" pronouncation makes me want to rip my ears off. I absolutely loathe this style of singing
3) The pronunciation of the word "getting" made me rant at the radio.

That's the end of any December radio for me

Keane are even worse than lily allen. Her accent is strange as when she talks its so posh but her dad and brother are also mockneys.

I love it you are bring unreasonable!!

CremeEggThief Fri 22-Nov-13 18:21:01

Ooh, her pronunciation of getting really gives me the rage too!

Tuhlulah Fri 22-Nov-13 17:17:58

Christmas, you are far from being unreasonable.

It's shite.

Yanbu, esp on the mockney accent comment.yuck.

I like both versions. But then I'm fairly tone deaf.

waikikamookau Fri 22-Nov-13 16:25:35

plus will they get huge royalties?

waikikamookau Fri 22-Nov-13 16:25:10

i think it must be good news for keane as their song is getting plenty of airplay now.

SirChenjin Fri 22-Nov-13 16:23:42

Love the original, hate this cover. This whole mockney thing really gets on my wick.

TheSmallPrint Fri 22-Nov-13 16:21:21

Yes lilola, several times a day. hmm

I like it, which is quite unusual when someone does a new version of a song I already know - almost always dislike the remake, but this is nice.
Shows what a quality song it is I suppose.

lilola Fri 22-Nov-13 15:31:09

does radio 1 really play it uncensored?! During the day? shock (the bitch one, not the keane cover)

Buttercup4 Fri 22-Nov-13 15:04:36

I really like the JL blush

BlingBang Thu 21-Nov-13 14:21:02

I really like her Keane cover - think it's lovely.

JeanSeberg Thu 21-Nov-13 14:02:23

Keane - music for people who don't like music.

olidusUrsus Thu 21-Nov-13 13:59:14

She did it to sell records I think. Her whole breakout album was a big PR move to get her down with da kidz, innit.

wintersdawn Thu 21-Nov-13 13:59:11

she was on the radio the other day and admitted she can't stand listening to the jl one either.

TheSmallPrint Thu 21-Nov-13 13:58:26

I don't mind that one but I can't believe Radio 1 are playing the other one in all it's 'glory' with a message to turn it down if you have children with you. hmm How bloody hypocritical, they bleep out loads of other songs which have the same word in (think Will I Am and Britney) but yet play this which repeats it over and over. Is this favouritism or some new line they are taking on swearing?

squoosh Thu 21-Nov-13 13:57:13

She went to Bedales, the accent is a joke.

squoosh Thu 21-Nov-13 13:56:57

The original song was twee and shit, the cover is just as twee and shit.

Gutted123 Thu 21-Nov-13 13:55:27

I like her but I don't understand the mockney affectation.

She was on a TV ad for something like sky+ a while back and sounded incredibly posh. Like cut glass Roedean posh.

ShirakawaKaede Thu 21-Nov-13 13:51:23

Yep, it's twee & awful & she is annoying. Wonder if she'd have got a record deal if it wasn't for her father...?

zatyaballerina Thu 21-Nov-13 13:35:05

I wonder if she fake talks all the time, even at home. What a strange thing to do!!!!confused

olidusUrsus Thu 21-Nov-13 13:30:33

Yes it's a fake accent.

KellyElly Thu 21-Nov-13 13:21:41

Is that the one from the JL ad? I like it!
