Sneaky Covers Watch

You probably know already that Same Difference have done a version of Marie Serneholt’s I Need A House for their album, but now we can actually hear it, along with a few other album tracks on this YouTube montage. The songs sound very much like Steps (except I Need A House, which is barely distinguishable from Marie), and that’s obviously a very dated sound now, but I love it anyway and can’t wait to buy the CD.

An even less publicised cover (at least a Google for info on it led to nothing) is Boyzone’s new single, which I recognised instantly as a song I wrote about having potential on here about a year ago – Tom Baxter’s Better. It’s lovely when Tom sings it, but with Boyzone it just turns into another of their mumsy ballads, and loses all appeal to me.
