i’ll just stop there, because i know if i continue, i’ll end up on a really weird number, and i don’t want to take ages deciding which albums to take out of the list in order to make it a nice, rounded number
making a playlist for studio tomorrow. i’m going to volunteer to plug my ipod in, and hopefully someone will notice the amount of little dragon that i so strategically placed in that playlist. hopefully someone in my studio will be all like
"omg i luv little dragon wanna come see them at da o2 wiv me??!??!"
and i’ll be all like “omg yh sure”
but as it stands, i don’t see that happening at all, so i’m probs going on my own
‘One More Try’ is the third single from Beverly Knight’s seventh album ‘Soul UK’, in which she covers lessor known British soul, jazz and R&B songs which she grew up listening to.
The song is probably the highest profile song Beverly tackles on the album, and she has a lot to live up to covering a US #1. However this is probably one of the few instances in which the cover betters the original. Gone are the 80s trademarks of George Michael’s original, replaced by a gospel choir and organ, allowing Knight’s rich, emotive vocals to take centre stage.
This beautiful rendition of the song shows why Beverley is still here after more than fifteen years, while others British soul singers have come and gone. While she may not have ever reached the meteoric heights of some, her distinctive vocals and passion for music have kept her in the music business all this time. Listen to this powerful song and you’ll see just why.
