Soda Jerk Posted November 5, 2009 Report Share Posted November 5, 2009 Why do they do this? I get the feeling perhaps Alkaline and Woodsinho might have info behind this, as they are often overflowing with facts. I just never quite understood it. I'm sure it's something to do with licensing, but if the "artist" has to pay to cover a song, then surely they could just fork out to be play the original version, and not covered by some guy off the street for a few bob and a paid lunch.I was in Poundland yesterday, and this absolutely horrific piano ballad version of Womanizer by Britney Spears was being played. 3 times slower, and just this horrible karaoke voice and piano just about talked the words. It was like if you could shit in your own ear.I always seem to catch Matalan playing some Atomic Kitten song that sounds like it's being crooned by Avid Merrion's Scary Spice impersonation.It's proper shite. Pull your finger out and get the radio on or something, or just let folk shop in silence. Music is shit anyway. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
