Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.
This, more than anything else, emphasises how out of touch with the music scene I am these days. I can remember back when Naked Eyes did their cover version of 'Always Something There To Remind Me', and my mother complained about how it sucked next to Sandi Shaw's version. Yeah right, I thought, what would you know? Fifteen years later, I find myself mouthing the same thoughts.
I know that this always happens: canny managers get their acts to record cover versions, the kids love 'em, anyone who remembers the originals hates them. It sucks when someone stomps on your memories of great music by putting them in a modern setting. But now I'm left wondering how long it will be before I start agreeing with Ray Martin, and am forced to shoot myself.
