GUEST,Sam Pirt HearSay sing Bridge over troubled water! (18) HearSay sing Bridge over troubled water! 21 Mar 01


Hi All

I realise I may be putting my life on the line by discussing such a manfactured pop band as 'hear say'.

For those that don't know they are a manufactured pop band who have come about due to a show in the UK called popstars, that really made me realise how lucky I was to be a 'folky', you know I really did feel proud the talent in the folk scene is huge!!

Anyway this band (or co-operative may be a better word!!) have brought out their debut single and the second song on it is 'Bridge over troubled water'!!!

How on earth can such a fake band sing such a good song with SUCH A GOOD ORGINAL VERSION. I have heard their version I am am afraid to report to all simon & Garfuncle fans they have recked it. Some things just should be left as a matter of respect. Why try and cover the orginal and best version at all???? Write your own material, be original I don't know, yes I do listen to folk music and discover real music with feeling, emotions, originality & catters.......oh and the original version of 'Bridge over troubled water'!!

Surely there are more catters that can see where I am coming from?...............are there?.......anyone?

Cheers, Sam
