The only one that gets my vote as I haven't been able to listen to any others submitted is the excellent "Sleepwalk" by Electro 80s. There is also an excellent live version of "Vienna" on their website.

Having said that - I saw Monument back in April, already know how excellent they are so they would go into a comp as well. smile

I can't do either. sad Can put together & present a rather fine radio show from time to time, even if I do say so myself......& quite a lot of the time I do!! But hey so long as the occasional patient who happens to stumble upon it enjoys a moment or two of it that's all that matters!!

This thought suddenly occured to me as I walked in the rain from one library to another nearer home......just how many females have entered the competition this year, or indeed in previous years? confused2

I then thought - having heard that youtube "cover" of Hymn on another thread which has a male/female duet, I'd be interested to hear a female vocalist have a crack at "Lament", possibly Hymn or, dare I suggest it - Vienna. There is one person who comes to mind who is on my facebook & does sing who I'd personally like to see have a go.

I would love to collaborate with someone next time round. I am a singer but don't play any instrument well enough to contribute something on my own.

As you have come forward Lynne - it is YOU I was referring to in my earlier post. I really think you could do an excellent job. Admittedly I've never heard you sing, but from what I have read about your singing in the past from your other fb friends I really believe you should do it. smile

I definitely feel there should be more female representation in the competition, hence the reason for my original comment. Certainly in one genre of music I listen to - rock - female musicians are scorned in some areas for even daring to pick up an instrument eek or else they are just dismissed as a nice piece of eye candy without much attention being paid to the musical talent. :rolleyes:

...whereas in other musical genres they flourish, i.e. Kate Bush, Bat For Lashes, Bjork, Alison Goldfrapp etc.

True.....& ok, they are an exception in the rock genre...but Girschool wouldn't still be going after 30 odd years without having some talent!!

As the discussion on Radio 5 last night commented about Cowell killing music....where will Leona Lewis be in 5 years time?!!!

Excellent track by Electro 80s... Love Sleepwalk.. along with Vienna. Heard them play both last month again at a gig. Top class.

You're on, Lynne! Next year, you and I will collaborate on an Ultravox tune of your choice. Not exactly sure how we'll do it, but we'll find a way.
