Lady Sovereign "samples" Close To Me

The title says it all. Just horrible. But you might disagree. : ) (Thanks Charlie and Johanna)

Update: Here's the video. (Thanks April and Midnight Blue)

  3. I made it 9 seconds before running off and drenching my ears in acid to ease the pain.

  8. I heard about. To be fair, I prefer this to a cover that is actually butchering the song; at least this is just a sample and some of the melody; Robert's lyrics are mostly safe!

    Check this link out from Pitchfork about how she spit on some guy at a club because he was protesting her after she insulted some guy who paid to out on a date with her. Crazy!

  9. Terrifying, to be sure, but mostly because it's not a genre of music I can stand... fwiw, it's kind of cool when people from all over the musical map appreciate The Cure. I think it's well done for what it is. I just really, really don't like what it is, heh. %^#

  10. I thought this was actually alright... And then the vocals kicked in. I couldn't listen past the 1:32 mark.

  11. I wouldn't spit on her if she was on fire. Can't wait for her career to be over!
